    Safewalrus...
    Just because you haven't heard of the man or of his achievements, doesn't mean you can post some flippant comment, this is current affairs not the gash barge. FFS a man and his 5 year old son have just died in a tragic accident and all you can do is take the piss!
    Go crawl back under your stone! :rambo:


    Mod edit: saves me saying it. Don't know the subject? Don't post or ask nice. Some deletions including the other justified bollockings for safewalrus

    +1 and well said mate.

    Colin McRae was an absolute WRC legend. Such a great shame and made even worse as the crash also killed his young son.

    RIP to you all. :-(

    What with Richard Burns having died already, that's both UK born WRC Champions. A kick in the teeth in very different ways, given the inherent danger of rallying.

    It's a very sad day for motorsports fans, not to mention Colin's dad Jimmy and his whole, rally-mad family, who have given those of us who enjoy watching their efforts so much pleasure over the years.

    Was covering the Hamilton Accies vs East Stirling match on Saturday afternoon. We saw the two Strathclyde plod cabs heading south at the rush but just thought it was a accident on the M74, seems it was Colin's crash site they were heading to. Very sad loss.

    RIP McRae and all who were on board, Shame to see another Rally driver to go at a young age.

    RIP.
