Colin McRae on-board in Focus WRC, Rally GB 2001
Getting us in the mood for the much-changed, but exciting new 2011 WRC season, here's some old footage of a much-missed friend, Colin McRae. With the "Welsh Wizard" at his side on Rally GB in 2001, in the brilliant Focus WRC, it's "maximum attack," as per usual, from the flying Scotsman – check out the speed in the downhill sections towards the end of the stage, flat out in sixth! Awesome! ROAD Ed, Phil Royle, was lucky enough to get to know Colin well, co-driving for him on the 2005 McRae Stages Rally in his 300bhp Mk2 Escort – a day and driving display he'll never forget. ROAD and rallying miss you Colin! Gone, but never forgotten... So, sit back and enjoy 7m09s of the sideways aggression gravel rally master in action. "Don't cut!" – followed by massive cut!
