On this day eight years ago, the motorsport world lost a legend. Colin McRae may have only won one World Rally Championship but he was loved by the fans because of his balls to the wall driving style.
No video sums up his crowd-pleasing driving style quite like this one. At the 2006 X-Games, McRae was on for a gold medal until he rolled it over the final jump. But Colin being Colin, he carried on despite having a broken car and came desperately close to beating Travis Pastrana’s time.
Travis may have won gold but there was only one winner that day.
