Colin Mcrae dies in helicopter crash!
« on: September 16, 2007, 14:39:40 PM »
Britains first world rally champion Colin Mcrae was killed today in a helicopter crash near to his home in Lanarkshire...

I heard the sad news early this morning and was shocked. As a grown man, i don`t mind admitting i had a horrible lump in throat when i heard what happen.

The man was an absolute legend in the rally industry, and will always be remembered as a true top rally driver.

My thoughts are with his friends and loved ones at this difficult time.

R.I.P Good Fella!!

Nicky Grist must be a bit shocked too, they had a rocky end to their partnership but all the same it must make a huge dent.

I can't remember a rally driver being killed in an event, but with Colin Richard and a local guy from round here. They all passed away off the dirt..

Very sad for the other families and especialy for his wife and daughter. Always especialy sad when a child ( or 2 in this case ) lose their lives. I would be destroyed if I lost my lad..
