Onboard rally video of the day - Colin McRae with Ford Focus WRC at Rally Finland

in Rally3 months ago

Hi, friends!

Can you imagine what is a feeling to drive a car which is brning from behind and you are on the full attack mode?

Many of us can't but that's rallying. You must be really brave to be in the top class driving some beast on the World Rally Championship event.

Do you believe in destiny and luck? Colin McRae won his WRC title in 1995 with Derek Ringer but after that he fired him and took Nicky Grist for his co-driver. Just to remind you that Grist used to be a co-driver for Juha Kankkunen and Armin Schwarz.

Anyway, McRae never won in Finland but he had some big shunts. This time he didn't retire because of going off road or crashing heavily into the tree like he did with Citroen.

This time firs caught the back of his Ford Focus WRC and he couldn't continue the rally.

That's a shame because that was his last attempt with Ford in Finland.

He came back to the same rally in Finland just once more, following year but with Citroen and the old co-driver Derek Ringer after Nicky Grist made some bad mistakes in the 2nd part of the 2002 season and the worst one was at WRC Rally New Zealand.

Watch the video and see how McRae performs at super fast gravel roads of Finland...
