Colin McRae on the Limit!!
Gymkhana 4 may be dominating this week's video action, but I think even Ken would admit he'd give his DC-shoes to be able to pilot a Ford like this on a special stage! The 'if in doubt, flat out' master, Colin McRae is on a charge in the 2001 Rally GB in Wales, in typically slippery conditions (although, no fog for a change!). Thanks to Tiff Needell for reminding us about it via Twitter (@tiff_tv). Like he says: "McRae flat out. They don't use opposite lock like this anymore. Simply awesome." Well said Tiff. Takes us back to our time co-driving with Colin on the McRae Stages rally in his DJM Mk2 Escort: The surreal pace, the unreal late braking, the sheer amount of sideways, the ease in which he controlled it all and the crazy amount of time spent in the highest gear possible, foot buried – all with a grin. Colin, we miss you man... it's just not the same without you. Is it folks?
