A sad day

Writing about web page

Yesterday motorsport lost one of the great names of a generation. McRae lit up the world of the World Rally Championship and brought it to the fore, with a combination of a likeable prankster in his character and amazingly balls-out commitment in his driving. When on form on gravel, no-one could hold a candle to him, and though he threw the car off the course time and time again he never reigned in his instinct to race at, and often beyond, the limit of what the car was capable of. When leaving his home territory of Rallying, other motorsport arenas showed that his talent was supremely flexible, with creditable performances not just in similar off-roading evens such as the Paris-Dakar Rally buy also circuit racing events, most famously perhaps at Le Mans. For over a decade his name has been synonymous with Rallying and Motorsport, and he will be sorely missed by his millions of fans.

  1. Its unbelievable that the two best British rally drivers of our generation have both died before 40 in such tragic circumstances – and not even through racing.
