Italian sports car driver Luca Moro passed away last weekend in a Milan hospital. He was 41.

Moro, who was a regular competitor in the European prototype and GT ranks, was hospitalized since March 6, reportedly with a brain tumor.

He last competed in the 24 Hours of Le Mans in 2012 in a Lotus LMP2 Lola-Judd together with Thomas Holzer and Mirco Schultis.

Previously, Moro competed in the European Le Mans Series, FIA GT3 European Championship, FIA GT Championship, International GT Open, among other series.

Moro made the headlines in 2006 with the suspension of his FIA race license due to substance abuse. However, he recovered and quickly returned to the wheel.

Moro is survived by his wife and two children. Sportscar365 sends its condolences to Moro’s family.
