Re: Colin McRae dies with son in helicopter crash

This is just an extract of something i posted elsewhere... Some here may know, most will not, but if there is one thing i love more than tennis, its motor racing and rallying

Quote:
speachless. first burns and now Mcrae, forget the rally games, forget the mccrash tag, he was the man who really added the spark to what was possibly the greatest era in the world rally championship, especially those early days, for me 94-5. My memories of him winning the championship and following the rac all over the country to watch him and richard will always be very special.

that 95 champioship showdown was an epic, he took the win in catalonia but was forced to take a time penalty by the team to allow carlos to win, therefore needing to win the final round, britains RAC rally. It didnt look too good after the first few days but he took the rac by the scruff of the neck on the final 2 days, he was supreme. I think he swung the event by 2 minutes in one day, that sort of stuff just doesnt happen anymore, it wasn't that regular then but if one man could do it, it was Mcrae. Its those days i will remember, the original impreza days, rather than the WRC days, the days where britain had several young up and coming wrc contenders, and sadly the 2 brightest lights are no longer with us

Then of course were the days where we would go into the rac or "rally gb" whatever you want to call it, and no one else had a chance, it was burns and mcrae, and only burns and mcrae, i think, in the period 94-00 only 1 man won the rac other than burns and mcrae, that was armin schwartz, in the year neither entered... (1996) They were very special days for a british rally fan, not only in the rac but in the whole wrc too, and its hard to beleive that of all things that can happen one has been taken by cancer and one has been taken in a helicopter crash.

I know some people here may remember his spectacular performance in the radicals at the LMS donington round last year, without having driven the cars he was fighting for the win, then there was le mans in the prodrive 550, and btcc guest outings amoung other things, an all round great driver, one of the very very best and one man, who, with a bit of luck could have the record of a Makinen or a kankkunen

Re: Colin McRae dies with son in helicopter crash

My son was so busted up he e-mailed and called me about it.

Very sad news.

McRae dies

Quel prix de mon amour! Il craint des pleurs qu'il m'oblige ŕ répandre . Insensible au feu le plus tendre dont un coeur ait brűlé jamais , quand mes soupirs ne peuvent suspendre l'injustice de ses projets . Il fuit pour ne les pas entendre.

(July 4th, 1994 - August 5th, 2009) I love you so much... I miss you so...
