    That's how motorsport pundit Bob McMurray will remember the late Sir Colin Giltrap, who has died at the age of 84.

    The businessman and philanthropist backed many of the country's top drivers, including Scott Dixon, Liam Lawson and Shane van Gisbergen throughout their careers.

    McMurray - who worked alongside Giltrap as part of the New Zealand A1 Grand Prix team - says he's irreplaceable.
