R.I.P. Colin McRae

McRae, who lent his name to the eponymous multi-platform rally driving game series, passed away late yesterday with his 5 year-old son and 2 other passengers in a catastrophic helicopter crash within a mile of his estate in Scotland.

It is a sad day for motorsport and gaming - he never knew slow and by all accounts was a great guy and father.

Colin leaves behind a wife and a Daughter. I prayer's are with them in this hour of need.


RIP Colin

RIP and go terrorize the heavens with your drivig style.



It is not about how hard you can hit! Its about how hard you can get hit and keep moving forward!

Don't judge me based on your ignorance.

McRae was the man.

Not making light of the situation, but if I'm a race driver, I'm going nowhere near a private plane or helicopter. How many racers have died in this manner?

Wynona loved her big brown beaver
And she stroked him all the time.
She pricked her finger one day and it
Occurred to her she might have a porcupine
