R.I.P. Colin McRae

I’m not a follower of this particular motor sport. But as a Gamer who plays a lot of Drive Simulators like Gran Tourismo, Metal Storm & Dirt; I do appreciate the beauty of a perfectly executed Powerslide (a.k.a. Drift).

And Colin McRea is the best at swinging it around.

This… is “Driving”

R.I.P. Colin McRae

“At approximately 4:10 pm on 15 September 2007, an AS350B2 Squirrel helicopter registered to McRae crashed 1 mile (1.6 km) north of Lanark, Scotland, close to the McRae family home. McRae’s agent Jean-Éric Freudiger stated that McRae was piloting the helicopter at the time of the crash. McRae’s father later confirmed that Colin was at the controls and that the crash was likely to have been the result of a mechanical failure. Police confirmed the next day that McRae, his five year old son Johnny, and two family friends, Graeme Duncan and Johnny’s six year old friend Ben Porcelli, died in the crash. McRae’s previously active website, ColinMcRae.com, was later replaced with a memorial screen stating a few details about the crash, and then with a short statement released on behalf of McRae’s father, Jimmy[, and later a book of condolences, containing over 55,000 entries as of 27 September 2007″
