News reports are just starting to filter through that Colin McRae, the Scottish rally star and world champion from 1995 just died in a helicopter crash.
McRae was piloting the helo and he had his 5 year old son with him.
Ah crap. I feel sick. Why do extraordinarily talented people get in helicopters? First Stevie Ray Vaughn and now Colin McRae.
McRae was well known to any with a scant knowledge of rallying, or video games. Colin McRae Rally was one of the hottest video games out back in the day of the PS1.
