Respect to a Rally Legend

Saturday 15th September Colin McRae's helicopter crashed and came down in Jerviswood, Lanarkshire, half a mile from the family's home and burst into flames. On board was himself, his son and 2 other passenages. Best wishes goes to his wife and daughter who were not on-board the helicopter.

McRae became Britain's first World Rally champion in 1995. He was one of the country's most successful sportsmen, achieving 25 wins in World Rally events and 42 podium places. He was a flamboyant driver, inspiring one the world's best-selling computer rally games.
I have also spend many, many, many hours playing on his fantastic Playstation simulation games.
MASSIVE respect to a MASSIVE Rallying Legend.
“Rally GB is obviously very special to me,
and I am looking forward to giving
the fans something to cheer,” Colin McRae
That he always did.
