Former 24 Hours of Le Mans class winner and American Le Mans Series driver Rick Sutherland passed away last month at the age of 65 due to a heart attack.

Sutherland, the founder and CEO of ClickAway, was a frequent competitor in the U.S. sports car racing scene, mostly in prototype machinery from the mid-90s in IMSA competition through 2006.

He won the 24 Hours of Le Mans in the LMP2 class in 2004 at the wheel of an Intersport Racing Lola B2k/40 Judd with Bill Binnie and Clint Field, while having made two additional starts in the French endurance classic.

Sportscar365 sends its condolences to Sutherland’s family at this difficult time.
