10 years ago we lost a legend

RIP Colin McRae and those he took with him.

A flawed genius, my favourite driver of any type of motorsport, the reason I first bought a Subaru, still never seen anyone handle a car like he could at an absolute 100%. Many others who were neater and maybe quicker at 95% but none with his utter commitment at the max. Tragic that his lack of risk assessment, a secret to his greatness in competition, was ultimately fatal in such an awful way.

Yep, along with Vatanen and Toivonen, McRae was someone that I thought held a lot of appeal to car enthusiasts and beyond, including me.

As Garcon says, it is both tragic and ironic that his driving style pervaded his life to the point of his flying and cost him, and others, their lives.

Rest in peace.

I've always though it sad that McRae and Richard Burns put their lives on the line every time they drove a rally car, yet were taken from us by another means.
