I stumbled across this on the NET.
A documentary team was following Colins life and career right upto 2007 - approx 4 weeks before he died along with his son and 2 others in a helicoptor crash.

I was always a great fan of Colin McRae, I thought he was a true warrior on the road and a legend to the sport.

Watch this documentary and realise what an all round top guy he was and realise why he was so respected and admired all around the world.

A tribute to a Rally Legend who the sport misses :thumbup:

have you seen the vid clips of the Subarau rally in his honour -for what is effectively a bunch of boy-racers driving slowly along a dull grey english motorway, it's suprisingly moving.

Now that is a turn out.
What a shame he died and really sad that his son went with him, young Johnny at 5 years old.

And we shouldnt forget the other adult and Johnnys child friend who was also killed.

Back to the documentary, did you see Colin in his Mk 2 Escort. Whoooa that was rapid. :thumbup:
