N/A | National What could have been...

Discussion in 'Racing, Motorsports, and Track Days' started by hornet, Dec 24, 2014.

  1. news.com.au today named Anthony Gobert at the top of its list of people who could have been and should have been, but failed. If you need a reminder of what a wasted sublime talent his was, watch this...

  2. Greatly talented man, racing at that level is a heavy commitment and it takes its toll. He had a personal battle with drugs and alcohol and lost his focus unfortunately. Then his positive drug tests arrest for theft, drug charges etc etc.

    He could have been a Doohan but lacked Doohan's steely eyed determination. Gobert had a bout of psychiatric treatment now as far as I know. Don't know where he is now. I hope he can get his life back together and wish him well.
