Colin McRae died today..
I got the very sad news today and although I´ve only met Colin once I know that my rally friends and my boss thought very highly of him.
This summer he told me about his driving school in Åre Sweden and we exchanged a few words about swedish car tesing centers (I´m impressed when someone knows where I´m from and how to pronounce Arvidsjaur).
What seemed like a casual conversation will now be
one I´ll remember forever.
I was filming rally from a helicopter only days ago... strange feeling...
He was only 39 years old.
My thoughts go out to his family and friends, especially his wife and daughter.
This is Colin with DC rally drivers Travis Pastrana and Ken Block.
