Source of entire article The Australian: Racing identity Darren Tyquin has died in a car crash in New Zealand. Tyquin, 41, was just 15 when he began his race calling career in 1982 at greyhound and harness meetings under the guidance of racing managers for Victorian radio station 3UZ.

For the teenager who grew up near the Sandown greyhound and horseracing tracks, the job was a dream career. He quickly became an on-air identity, winning the Pater Award for best new talent in Australian Radio in 1983.
He also worked as a racecaller in Tasmania for TVT6. It's understood Tyquin died when his car left a highway about 12.50am this morning (10.50 pm last night AEDT) in Christchurch, in New Zealand's South Island. He had been living in New Zealand since 1999.
Longtime friend and fellow race caller Paul Langham from Radio Sport 927 said Tyquin would be missed."He was a real character. He loved his racing and enjoyed his visits back to Melbourne," Langham said.

A religious man, Tyquin became a Christian minister and was known in racing circles as the "Racing Reverend". He was married to Jill Tyquin.
