The two best rally drivers in the world are now dead (the other being Richard Burns who died 2 years ago). I'm absolutely gutted. And his 5 year old son aswell. A blow to the rally world. And motorsports in general.

It is such a shame, I feel for his wife. Losing her husband and her child.

That isn't the point, but it's how alot of people will know him.

damn now his ex-team boss is involved in another helicopter crash, but he and his wife survived luckily. This weekend seems to be pretty cursed for aviation. First an old hurricane aircraft crashes at an airshow killing its pilot, then McRae, his son and two others die in a heli crash, then a plane crashes in Thailand killing a lot of people and now this too. Just a lot of coincidences at the same time. R.I.P to all those whove died in aviation disasters.

Yeah, I heard about this - it's horrible that they said the wreckage was so extreme that they couldnt tell how many people actually were dead.

Aye, I heard about this this morning when I was told that he had died. I was going out racing today too

Very sad indeed. He was always my favourite rally driver when I was younger, and he was closely followed by Richard Burns.

RIP Colin, RIP.
