TALLINN - Prime Minister Andrus Ansip unveiled a memorial to British rally driver Michael Park who died last September in an accident during the Wales Rally GB.
Park was Estonian Markko Martin's co-driver when his Peugeot 307 lost control and crashed during the Welsh rally.
"Michael Park was honored and loved here in Estonia," Ansip said, addressing Michael Park's family during the ceremony.
"For us, he wasn't a foreigner, he was our co-driver, our own hero. He was a member of the Estonian team," AFP reported Ansip as saying.
