RIP Colin McRae

Rally Great killed in helicopter crash.

It is with deepest regret that RIDES reports the tragic death of rally racing champion Colin McRae. Colin, his 5 year old son Johnny, and two unnamed passengers were killed in a helicopter crash on Saturday in Scotland. McRae, 39, had been instrumental in the growing US popularity of rally racing. He will be missed by many, both in and out of the automotive/motorsports world.
