Those that knew him from Ausca, are older as well, but recognize his contributions to Alfa racing from his contributions to the AROC CAS, and Autodelta in international racing. Rest in peace brother.

A nice guy. I met him at Knauz's and later bought some performance stuff for my Giulia Spider from his shop in Libertyville Illinois. At one of the Trans Am races at Mid-Ohio, he was ahead of the Datsuns and continued to a very big lead before the car broke. I asked him why he kept pushing so hard when backing off just a little might have made the car last to the end. His reply: "Well mate, you have to let them know you are here".

Great Horst Kwech quote from Carroll Smith's Prepare to win:
"We're all a bunch of mugs! We work twenty-four hours a day, don't eat; we don't sleep and we spend all of our money just so we can go out again next Sunday and break the damned car."
—Horst Kwech, circa 1970
