“It made all the difference, and Paul Walker was a big part of that,” Garcia, founder of West Coast Car Events, told CTV British Columbia.
The forty ear old had been a passenger in the car which was driven by his friend, who also died Roger Rodas when the vehicle crashed into a light pole and tree, then exploded in flames.
Garcia said Walker’s death is a reminder that no one is invincible.
“We should all be careful on the roads,” he said.
Saturday’s event raised about one thousand three hundred dollars which will be donated to the Canadian Red Cross to support the victims of Typhoon Haiyan.
