    Colin McRae has, and always will be the most entertaining and raw talented Drive the WRC and possibly the world has ever seen, he was always on the edge and always going 100%

    I have a Scale model of the Martini Focus with McRae's and Grists names on it, I will now be keeping this for life

    This has been known for a while but was officially confirmed this morning.

    Colin McRae and his 5 year old son Johnny-Gavin McRae were killed in a helicopter crash near to McRae's home. Two other people were killed, one was a close friend of McRae and the other tragically was his own 6 year old son. Four people were killed in the crash and the families have been notified.

    Many friends and fans have already expressed their condolences to what truly was a Rally and Motorsport Legend.

    RIP Colin McRae, you done Scotland and Britain proud!!

    Subaru World Rally Team managing director, Richard Taylor:

    "All of us at the Subaru World Rally Team are shocked and upset by the tragic news of Colin McRae's death, which was announced on Sunday. Colin was Subaru's first World Champion and a man who almost single-handedly brought the sport of rallying to the attention of millions around the world. He was an inspiration to motorsport fans and remained a close friend to many of us in the team. At this terribly sad time our thoughts are with Alison and the rest of Colin's family."

    Any chance of murging the three threads as this is just confusing. A sad and a total shock, he's been right out of the media since his big crash really.

    he will be dearly missed by motorsport

    he was the reason why I followed rallying for years and I was hoping to see him race this year at the Race of Champions

    Rest In Peace
