LOS ANGELES - Thousands of fans gathered in California at the site of Paul Walkers's death to memorialise him and his friend who died in a car crash a week ago.

Fans decided the memorial should take the form of a car rally in order to pay tribute to him and his performance in five of the six Fast and the Furious movies.

Paul was at a charity event before the accident and was travelling with friend Roger Rodas, owner of a local car dealership, who was behind the wheel and crashed into a utility pole which caused the car to burst into flames.

It is said that hundreds of cars drove past the site and over five thousand people took part in the event, with fans coming from many cities in the country.

Walker worked on two movies before his death, with one due to be released in December 2013 and the other scheduled for release next year.
