McRae, his son and two other passengers all died today when the helicopter that McRae was piloting near his home in Strathclyde when the helicopter crashed into the ground. The helicopter burst into flames around 4pm UK time today.
In 1995 McRae became Britain’s first World Rally champion. He achieved 25 wins in World Rally events. He even inspired the creation of one of the best-selling computer rally games.
My condolences go out to Colin McRae’s family and friends.
