The Days After: Mourning Colin McCrae (1968 – 2007)

Filed under:

A little over a day after a tragic helicopter accident has claimed the life of famous rally driver Colin McRae and three others, including his 5-year-old son Johnny, fans and members of motorsport alike are paying tribute to the legend with kind words. With perhaps the most fitting gesture so far, the Scottish Subaru Impreza Drivers Club formed a parade of Subarus outside of McRae’s home in Lanark, Scotland, leaving a makeshift shrine and a note that said, among other sentiments, “May you enjoy going ‘flat out’ in God’s special stage.” Well known drivers in other types of motorsport also followed the career of McRae, and those who have commented on his death include Formula One driver David Coulthard, legend himself Jackie Stewart, and MotoGP rider Valentino Rossi.
