From hte Internal combustion Group web site: Internal Combustion Group Reports Death of Tom Hnatiw It is with deep sadness today that the family of Tom Hnatiw reports his passing. Tom was the Founder and President of Internal Combustion Group. With a thirty year career in motor sports, Tom produced or was involved in the production of over 500 shows relating to autos, especially auto racing. One of the most recognizable voices in motorsport, Tom is best known for his involvement in the shows, Hard Drive, Sports Car Revolution, Dream Car Garage and Car Guys. Tom was one of the best-known live racing announcers and a frequent automotive contributor to an array of magazines and newspapers. This is so sad. Tom was a good friend both personally and to Crescent. He did a nice program promoting Crescent for Dream Car Garage and this past year did a nice show dedicated to Crescent for Hard Drive. He was a great story teller. I spent many a very late night listening to his stories of motoer racing. I don't think Tom ever met a stranger. He always made you feel like you were a long lost friend. My wife never minded me hanging out with Tom till the wee hours. The worst that would happen is I might have a bit too much to drink, but I would be in good company. RIP my friend. You will be missed.
