Colin McRae – LIVE in 2008

So many folk might only know of “Colin McRae Rally” video games for PlayStation & XBox – how many actually remember him from World Rally events ?

Colin McRae won the world title in 1995 – and runner-up in 1996, 1997 and 2001.   He always looked “on the limit” with a wild out-of-control style – but somehow very fast also.  

Compared to the great legend Tommi Mäkinen – who was a very smooth & flowing driver – he won the world title in 1996, 1997, 1998 AND 1999 – the Micheal Schumacher of rally.

I’ve seen Colin McRae in action three times – once in Perth, and then twice in New Zealand.   And was able to get a poster signed by him & co-driver Nicky Grist.

Here’s hoping that he DOES return to rallying for next year – they’re needing a bit of a boost, has been on a bit of a decline in past year or so.
