A personal message to all rally fans

Colin’s web-site has been overwhelmed with fans, well-wishers and those seeking more information.

On Monday evening the site was quite simply overwhelmed as almost half a million people tried to access it and read the Book of Condolences.

We understand that some national news networks have also had to take down their own personal tributes to Colin because demand on their sites threatened to disrupt their own services. This added even more pressure to Colin’s site.

We are quite simply stunned by this reaction, but as a family, we have drawn great strength from your kind words and support from all around the globe.

We are pleased to report that the facility has now been restored under a different format, allowing access to the 2,500 most recent messages

Just as your lives appear to have been touched in some way by Colin, so ours have been touched by your thoughtfulness. It is a very humbling experience and we are truly grateful for all your support and kind words.

The McRae Family


Please note due to the massive amount of traffic the site is currently experiencing this page may run slowly at times. We are doing everything we can to rectify this and we thank you for your patience.

Pamela Craddock - 27/09/2007 09:03:27

I've walked many miles and spent many hours sitting in the cold, wet stages of rallies to catch the mere glimpse of Colin. Never did his 11/10ths style disappoint, the only question would be how much of the car had failed to keep up with him! Sadly missed

my lasting memory of colin will always be the speed event at lanark auction mart. i arrived, families with kids, every kind of spectator. a woman in high heels and white top stops in her tracks as a bike engined buggy goes buy, splattering mud, small stones and water over everybody, including a few nice cars. her top was ruined!!! It made everyone smile mind you. thats was colin all over....
brian haile - 27/09/2007 07:02:35

Racky Bhamra - 27/09/2007 06:42:37

I can't tell you how sad I am to hear this news. I have followed his career since the 90s and have always wanted to meet him. He was one of the biggest inspirations to become more attuned with rallying and I will never forget the days of how he and Tommi Makinen were the 2 most prominent racers in the world. I want to be able to do something more for you but I don't know how. He was an incredible man, and I wish him and his son have the respect in the afterlife that they did here, because they deserve it.
Ian Cole - 27/09/2007 06:34:34

Here where I(20) live (Curacao, Netherlands Antillies) there are not many people who are rally fans. But I'm one of them. Colin was one of the best drivers ever and being a big fan of him I will really miss him. Colin R.I.P. you left us to soon, really to soon.....:(:(:(:(
Chirtopher Manuel - 27/09/2007 04:16:18

He was the greatest racer and the most gentleman person who i have ever seen in the WRC...We will never forget him...

Since I was a child I've always watched Colin and WRC. He is the main reason why I love cars and WRC so much. Colin will forever remain a legend of the WRC motorsport. He will also remain a loving and caring Husband/Father, Johnny was lucky to have a father like Colin and they will be missed so greatly. Colin You Are My Hero RIP

I was deeply saddened to hear the news of Colin's passing. A true hero to so many and a true gent as well. I was priveleged enough to meet Colin on a number of occasions throughout his rally career and always found him to be so down to earth He often remained behind after many of the other drivers had left and signed autographs for his many fans. I hope that his family can take some comfort from all the messages on here that show just how much Colin was loved. R.I.P Colin
Vince Gould - 27/09/2007 00:26:02

Santiago S. - 27/09/2007 00:04:11

I remember watching Colin 20 years ago beating much more powerful cars, in fantastic style, in a little Vauxhall Nova. And his dad moving from 4wd Toyota to only 2wd Ford to give Colin a proper drive. 'The Greats' don't just win, they win in style. That's how I speak of Colin to my son. And I'm sure I'm not alone in thinking this. I wish to offer my sincere condolences.
Gary - 27/09/2007 00:02:12
