Below is the message issued by the GMR&SC on Thursday morning.
The motor-racing world awoke this morning to the shocking news that motorsport photographer Michael Samuels aka ‘Mikey Spice’ lost his life in very tragic circumstances last evening outside his home in Jamaica.
There really can be no words to describe how great of a person ‘Mikey’ has always been. ‘Mikey’ brought us as close to the racing action as we could have gotten, but the greatness in ‘Mikey’ lay in his personality. He was always a friendly and jolly person who would move mountains to ensure those around him were happy.
Many of us formed a very close bond with ‘Mikey’ over the years and he will be missed dearly.
The GMR&SC would like to extend condolences to the friends and family of ‘Mikey’ and ask you to be strong in this time, as ‘Mikey’ would not have wanted to see you sad.
