I'm as shocked as everyone else. Martin will not be forgotten. He has left his mark on so many lives. I can still see him smiling and enjoying himself doing what he loved to do. Condolences to the Petre family. Thanks for sharing him with us. Praying for the family.

Martin, you are the BEST of us!!!

Thank You so much for helping me teach my boy how to swim that weekend in Hardwood and for the countless hours of conversations we had about anything and everything.
I will miss you always!! I will never forget you my FRIEND!

I can’t believe it....

Derek, my deepest condolences!! I always thought of your dad as a father figure. Many nights we'd talk and have a few cold ones, many times we were the only two awake at the track. My race weekends will never be the same without him....

Derek, my thoughts are with you and your family. Martin was a great sportsman, and an exceptional human being. Probably the only 50+ year old man that I truly considered a friend. Just shows what kind of person he was, liked by everyone.

Cheers to you Martin!

The Thompsons

-on behalf of Margaret and Hugh Thompsons

We have known Martin twenty-two years, since Competition Speedway.
We became instant friends. Over the years we raced, picniced and played a hellava lot of Wii golf games together. The last season racing at HPA Speedway was great fun. Rest in Peace RC PRO...
Love to the entire Petre clan.

Margaret and Hugh Thompson

I had a pretty hard time reading through.. Its been a rough day as i found out about 5am... I had some epic battles on the track with Martin all have been clean and hard fought because its simply what we both loved..... I always stayed up late with the 3 moogen guys and shared loads of laughs and good times... Im pretty choked up and have been all day till now when i could actually collect myself from the puddle to post..... It just wont be the same.... Myself (im sure Im not the only one) I will be sporting a silver bullet on my rides from here till when I hang it up. Im going to miss Martin very much... I have a picture im sure everyone would enjoy I just gotta figure out how to scan it... It is incredible.. I am so sad... Thinking of Jordan and Chewy and hope to see all of you soon..

Derek your father was one of a kind buddy I loved that man! His memorys will never fade and he will be on the stand with us always... My condolences from my family to yours.

+1, there will be one on all my rides 'till the day my hands can't hold a radio any longer.

Just an idea i thought i'd through out there, the spot on hardcores schedual that says "three day race TBA" i think should be a memorial race for Martin.

Rick i think thats a great idea, and I'd like to do the same if you don't mind.
maybe we can get some decal sheets made (kind of like our name tags?) to place the bullet easily.
