Thumbs Up Not on now but after Xmas

This should be worth a look for all the McRae fans


Quote:
Episode 2 – Colin McRae | Friday 28 December – 8pm – BBC Two

Olympic hero Sir Chris Hoy tells the story of Britain’s first-ever World Rally Champion, Colin McRae.
Along with Colin’s father, Jimmy – himself a five-time British Rally Champion – Sir Chris visits the scenes of Colin’s greatest triumphs. From exploring Colin’s roots as a Scottish trials bikes champ to driving the route of the Dakar rally over the dunes of the Sahara desert, Sir Chris retraces Colin’s wide-ranging career.
His father Jimmy speaks movingly about the tragic accident that claimed his son’s life, and the pride he has in his many successes. Finally, Sir Chris faces driving the iconic Subaru Impreza over a stage of the RAC Rally, home of Colin’s famous 1995 victory.





There's also two other episodes in the series :

Episode 1 – Sir Stirling Moss | Thursday 27 December – 8pm– BBC Two

Episode 3 – Sir Jackie Stewart | to be announced

Now this sounds like quality christmas programming. Chris Hoy i think is a closet racing man as he'll be racing in the new budget Radicals next year! He's been to Knockhill a few times as well.

What about Burnsie?

Everyone goes on about McRae, but he crashed alot and piloted his helicopter irresponsibly, which cost his own and other young lives.

Burnsie was the first English World Champion, where are the specials about him?

Richard Burns was a gentleman, very quick and rarely binned it, he was taken from us through no fault of his own....
