Pat raced with the Oval Division and his records at oval tracks still show up at the GPL Rank. We shared the tracks for many years and we will remember him as a good man, always helpful with everybody in need.

Regardless, a member of the GPL sim community is lost to us and we are the poorer for it.
Condolences to you, his family and friends.

AtlasF1 was my very first online racing league back in 2001 or so...and I remember my very first race here...it was won by Pat Widder. I am very sad to hear this news.
Am doubly sad by the news of JW King passing.
My deepest condolences to the friends and loved ones of both of these fine gentlemen. Legends both.

Long time no see my friend! Both losses were quite painful for sure
How are you doing? I hope all is well up there! Send me an email so we can keep in touch!

Nice to see you posting. Last I recall, you were suffering greatly from back problems. Hope that's all behind you now. (No pun intended)

I have, by the way, continuing nightmares of ramming you in the rear in the slow-speed corner at Kyalami in a race about two hundred years ago. Tell me it wasn't you. Tell me it was all a dream. Lie to me if you have to.

I'm really sorry to read this :-( For any other ex atlas-ers I raced with Pat in Atlas from about 99-03 and he was a great racer, a great teammate and although we never met I considered him a friend. I can honestly say racing GPL with Pat, Bob, Art, Jari, John, Mike, Moshe and everyone else in atlas was one of the best things I've ever done and easily the most fun I've had sat in front of a PC. Obviously this was sometime ago but my condolences to his family and friends. R.I.P. Pat.
If any of you still race online in any way please let me know I'd love to do something!
