    I just heard this on the radio and straight away googled it. Apparently Colin's son has already been identified, however it is only a matter of time before Colin is confirmed dead as well.

    What a tradgedy :(

    I have to admit I know little of Rally Driving, yet this guy had the ability and the personality to become known to guys like me. Obviously a supremely talented driver and it is always sad to see someone so talented die so young. Sadly made even more tragic by the eath of children as well. My condolences go to the McRae family. (I'm still hoping there is a slim chance he got away but it doesn't sound at all likely.)

    Terrible News to the World of Motorsport, he was truely the driver who brought Rally to the Masses, especially with his highly successful franchise of games... If and as unfortunately expect to hear the news later today confirming his death the world of motorsport will have lost a huge huge personality, I was lucky enough to see him and have a brief chat to him at Goodwood last year, such a fantastic bloke but also an amazing driver...

    Sad, sad news. I also got to know of him through the successful rally game franchise.

    Condolences to his family.

    The following is not meant as a joke, I must stress that.

    Isn't it bizarre that he managed to take thousands of hair-pin corners at speed, yet he dies in this way and it's not like there's corners in the sky.

    The sad irony of routinely facing death on the ground and losing life in the sky is not lost on me.

    Once again, a sad loss.

  10. very sad news, a great loss to not only the motorsport comunity but also to scotland as a nation - a great ambasador for his country and truly represented what most scots are like. he will be remembered throught the world as a great rally driver - but in lanarkshire he will also be remembered for the help he gave to local buisnesses.

    he was often regarded as as good a pilot as he was a rally driver - which makes you wonder what went wrong. (although the weather here was abismal yesterday, it wasnt anything out of the norm - conditions he knew well)
