    That's absolutely horrible. Been following the McRae and the WRC for about 7 years now. It's a shame, the world has lost one of it's best drivers.

    Sucks beyond belief as he was a great driver and an outstanding sportsman.
    As well as the WRC he took part in the 2004 Le Mans 24hr, finishing 9th overall and 3rd in his class on his first outing in a GT car, and drove a Nissan truck in the Paris-Dakar rally.
    He also ran his own rally school and sponsored a few promising young rally drivers.
    Had the pleasure of shaking his hand a few years ago on the RAC rally at a checkpoint.

    He'll be sorely missed by all of his fans and the entire motorsport community, my thoughts are with his friends and family.

    PS* Valentino Rossi dedicated his MotoGP win at Estoril today to Colin's memory.

    it is tragic. i've seen a few interview with him over the years and he seemed like a nice guy.

    it feels spooky as i was just playing the demo for his latest game on 360.
