WRC celebrates 25 years since McRae’s historic world title

Twenty-five years ago this Sunday (22 November), Colin McRae climbed out of his iconic blue Subaru Impreza to wild adoration as he became the youngest ever world rally champion. He was the first British driver to win the title following one of the FIA World Rally Championship’s most pulsating finales. McRae’s daughter, Hollie, who was not born when he won the title, speaks publicly for the first time about the man who was simply ‘dad’. McRae carved a reputation as one of the WRC’s fastest and bravest drivers. “For the first eight years of my life, I didn’t really know Colin McRae the world champion driver, I just knew him as dad and that’s all he was,” she said. We will go to Monza trying to win the rally,” he said. • Colin McRae: 25 Years A Champion will be available from regular WRC broadcasters worldwide from Friday 20 November.
