    Really started following 'the rally' when colin and burnsie were really going for it against each other!

    I'm going to be glued to the news now, still hoping that maybe it wasn't him - my sincere condolences too whoever was involved!

    Can't believe that possibly my 2 heros may be gone!!

    As always rip Richard

    Only talking about McRae today because i've had a signed picture of Colin in my lounge for the last six years, and have re decorated and just taken the picture down,and was looking to put it somewhere else in my house.

    Simply the best, McRae.

    yes its true :(

    A tragedy indeed.
    It has been confirmed by a very reputable source over on British Rally Forum that Colin McRae has been killed.

    His brother Alistair has been reported being in Australia at present.
    Condolences to all concerned.
    Another rallying legend sadly gone..........RIP.

    Due to the British Rally posts and the news appearing on the web I cant possibly express my feelings and sadness, he was the most talented driver I have ever had the luck to watch and meet on several occasions, one of those being the 1994 RAC rally when he won it for the first time, we ended up in the Subaru after party and I have photos of the evening.

    This made me save to buy a Subaru and this is when I met Adge and his passion for Subaru, McRae and Burns is what started the rallying again and Adgespeed.

    I am gutted and saddened for the loss of a great sports man a farther a husband and my hero.

    R.I.P Collin.

    Just got in and logged on to find this news. Sky have just shown something similar. No formal I.D. yet but sadly it looks bad.
    Totally totally shocked, another one of the hero's of british and world rallying lost amd the man who made Subaru into the following it has now, and which in a way, is why we all have Scoobs and why we are on here now.
    Sad day indeed if it is as suspected.
