Getting us inside the mood for the much-changed, although exciting completely 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, inside the brilliant Focus WRC, that will’s “maximum attack,” as per usual, coming from the flying Scotsman – check out the speed inside 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 along with driving display he’ll never forget. ROAD along with rallying miss you Colin! Gone, although never forgotten… So, sit back along with enjoy 7m09s of the sideways aggression gravel rally master in action. “Don’t cut!” – followed by massive cut!
