Default RIP Colin McRae

It is believed that one of the passengers was McRae's five year old son, Johnny who is also feared dead although this has not been confirmed as of yet. The identity of the other passengers is still unknown due to extensive fire damage.
What a shame. A great rally driver, probably the best of his time. His games were pretty damn fun too. Rest in peace and my heart goes out to friends and family of Colin.

That is very sad news, I used to hear about him all the time in the news when he was winning all those championships.

And to lose two young children (his son and his son's friend) as well, that is truly terrible.

Very sad. I also heard his 5 year old son also died in the crash, as well as his son's friend.
