Breaking news: Colin McRae

  1. Damn, that's too bad for the racing community, wasn't he in the process of building his own car as well?
  2. He was my hero for years in the 90s. He was still the best guy to watch in rallying when he was at the limit.

    This #$%#ing blows!
  3. I'm sorry, but I LOL'd when mclaren said he was going to buy a video game as a tribute to Colin McRae.
  4. It unfortunately sounds pretty certain, which really sucks because I loved watching Colin race

    In my mind, Colin and Burns will always be remembered for Wales 2001.

    Tommi and Colin should have rightfully won the championship that year, but both of them made a rookie mistake at the last minute which took them out of contention. That handed the title to Richard, who definitely didn't deserve it.

    Here was Colin's accident--a crash that was caused by a misunderstood pace note. Nicky told him "Five right don't cut into five left cut" but Colin got the cuts backwards and he clipped a post at the apex of the right-hander.

  6. I wouldn't want to create a double-standard where I do it for Richard but not for Colin.

    Besides, his estate (eg, children) will be collecting the royalty money.
  7. His 5 year old son is also feared dead.
  8. Maybe you can just give him a ride in your AMG you liar
