From a very early age, Colin McRae displayed a talent for speed on both two and four wheels and was determined to follow his father, Jimmy McRae, five times British Rally Champion. In 1991, after several successful seasons in the British Rally Championship, Colin joined Prodrive to drive the Subaru Legacy and later the Impreza. In his first year he won four of the seven rallies to become the British Rally Champion. 1995 was McRaes most successful season to date, taking three victories on his way to securing the Drivers World Rally Championship. The following two seasons saw McRae finish runner-up in the Drivers Title despite leading the Prodrive Subaru World Rally Team to victory in the Manufacturers Championship. In 1999, after eight successful years with Prodrive, Colin moved to Ford to drive the Focus World Rally Car and secured his 25th WRC Victory which made him the sports most successful driver to date. In 2003 Colin signed for the French team Citroen making him the third highest paid sportsman in Britain and he is without doubt, the outstanding rally talent of his generation and a Legend in his Time. Tragically, Colin and his young son, along with two family friends, were killed in a helicopter crash on 16th September 2007.
