WRC champions gather to remember Colin McRae

Colin McRae on his way to a world title in Cosica in 1995

A group of former champions from the World Rally Championship will participate in a special event to commemorate the 10th anniversary of Colin McRae’s death.

The Rallylegend event in San Marino from October 19-22 will see 1995 world champion McRae, who tragically died in September 2007, honoured.

As part of the tribute, M-Sport Ford driver and reigning WRC champion Sebastien Ogier will be reunited with his championship winning Volkswagen Polo R.

The line-up includes also McRae’s former co-drivers Derek Ringer and Nicky Grist, while Perth-based Alister McRae will lead a demonstration through San Marino in his brother’s 1995 WRC-winning Subaru Impreza.

Hans Thorszelius and Robert Reid will be present to represent WRC drivers’ champions Bjorn Waldegaard and Richard Burns.
