Teams and friends of the 2012 Powerboat champion co-driver Dean Paling are mourning his passing after Dean was killed along with his friend Tom Emery when the Mitsubishi Lancer they were traveling in crashed near the Hampshire village North Boarhunt.

Everyone at Powerboat P1 is shocked and deeply saddened to hear about the loss of Little Dean Paling, at just 23 he was such a happy soul taken so suddenly and so young. Our thoughts are with his friends and family at this difficult time.

Hundreds of people turned out at Hedge End Retail Park to remember the pair just 24 hours after the accident occurred.

Friend Dan Sainsbury has set up a webpage for the Cystic Fibrosis Trust as Dean suffered from the illness throughout his life. Quoted in the Southampton Daily Echo Dan added: 'I have known Dean and Tom for years. Dean was a happy-go-lucky guy and never let his cystic fibrosis get him down and Tom was one of the most chilled out. I originally set up the trust to hit £1000 and I didn’t really think I’d get close to that. I thought people might donate £1 or £2 but the way it has taken off has been a real surprise and I’m so grateful for everyone’s support. It’s been brilliant, within 24hrs we had raised £2750.00.'

Any friends or fellow racers who knew Dean who would like to donate the charity simply visit: justgiving.com/stickittocf

Last years P1 SuperStock Champion Dean Stoneman announced the arrangements for his best friend and co-driver's funeral: 'Dean would be very thankful of all the messages that have been sent. Also the family would like to say a big thanks for the support over the last week and all the donations to the CF trust. The funeral will be held at Wessex Vale West End 2.30 on the 19th December.

People who want to follow Mr D Paling please could you be at hedge end McDonalds at 1.45 to follow. Dean would like lots of noise and a long train to show respect and support. The family request NO BLACK. Smart casual how dean would of liked Powerboat P1 website
