"At approximately 4:10 pm on 15 September 2007, an AS350B2 Squirrel helicopter registered G-CBHL to McRae crashed 1 mile (1.6 km) north of Lanark, Scotland, close to the McRae family home. McRae's agent Jean-Éric Freudiger stated that McRae was piloting the helicopter at the time of the crash. Police confirmed the next day that McRae, his five year old son Johnny, and two family friends, Graeme Duncan and Johnny's six year old friend Ben Porcelli, died in the crash. McRae's previously active website, ColinMcRae.com, was later replaced with a memorial screen stating a few details about the crash, and then with a short statement released on behalf of McRae's father, Jimmy."

Rest In Peace Colin.

Discuss.

RIP

I'll bet this is just like the episode of the Simpsons where Krusty pretends to crash his plane and then turns out to be living as a commercial fisherman.

Okay, the two kids make this absolutely horribly sad. Man, there were a lot of deaths, when you have this many deaths, including a celebrity and kids, in a weird way like a helicopter crash, I'm surprised I heard about this on an Offspring BBS.

Well im not very clued up on rallying but i would assume that there will be no more Colin Mcrae games. Are there any other really famous rally drivers that could start a series of games? If there is it may still be possible for more rally games to come out.
