Product Description

During 2007, a Duke production team was tasked with producing the definitive documentary about Colin McRae. With full access to all the WRC recordings of Colin's championship years, plus other rally and family archive, director Mark Cross was able to compile the most comprehensive career record yet of this remarkable sportsman. Working closely with McRae Motorsport Ltd, we also had rare and exclusive access to Colin during a hectic year in which he was about to launch his first production rally car, the amazing R4, was contracted to the X-raid BMW team for Dakar 2008, was involved in the launch of the latest version of his hugely successful computer game 'Colin Mcrae-Dirt' and was seriously considering a return to the WRC. The crew also joined Colin driving the R4 in public for the first time at Goodwood and thrilling the crowds in his unique Ford Escort Mk 2 at the Manx National Rally. Finally, in late August, only afew weeks before the tragic accident that claimed the lives of Colin, his son Johnny and two family friends, we were especially privileged to spend two days in Lanark with Colin and his family. Here Colin talked candidly about every aspect of his career and life, his favourite and not-so-favourite, drives, events, teams and his plans for the future. This is his story - the story of a true rally legend.

Review

Don't think this is a hastily-prepared tribute rushed out in time for Christmas - nothing could be further from the truth. Duke Video had been commissioned to make an authorised biography of McRae at the start of 2007, and was given unparalleled access to the private life of one of rallying's true greats. It followed Colin's activities through the first half of 2007, including his R4 production car project (which he can be seen demonstrating at Goodwood) and the launch of the Colin McRae: Dirt computer game. The 90-minute film is interspersed with some full and frank interviews with the Scot. Some of the most poignant moments were filmed just a few weeks before the helicopter accident which claimed his life. Anyone who truly appreciated Colin's bravery and skill behind the wheel really should have this DVD in their collection. --Motorsport News, December 5, 2007.

Hastily created tribute films are all too common in this commercilly driven age, but this incredible production is the antithesis of such a thing. With the full cooperation of Colin, this film was well underway before the horrors of September 15. Narated by McRae's friend and biographer Derick Allsop, every facet of the Scot's life is coverered - from early scrapes in rallying, through the WRC glory days with Subaru, right up to the one-off return with Citroen, the Dakar Rally exploits and the first public appearnace of the potent McRae R4. Additional material, which makes this film so watchable, includes Colin's infamous BTCC debut at Knockhill in '92, his balls-out charge last summer in the Manx National Rally on the Isle of Man aboard ONM 804V, his incredibly lairy Mk2 Escort and first-hand accounts of the Colin McRae Rally video game phenomenon. It's full-fat, high-octane, undiluted turbo Mcfever from start to finish and Colin and little Johnny would have loved it. --Autosport, January 10, 2008

Format: DVD
Colin McRae was by far the most exciting rally driver that ever lived, and his story is worth knowing. The feature includes great interviews with his father (Jimmy, also a rally driver), his wife (Alison), and his first WRC boss (David Richards). I would have liked to see more interviews with the likes of Nicky Grist (long time co-driver), Malcolm Wilson (team boss at Ford), and maybe some rally rivals such as Marcus Gronholm or Carlos Sainz, but that probably would have required a production beyond the scope of this product.

The video really shines in the amount of footage from Colin's career. WRC.com has a decent tribute to Colin in their Hall of Fame collection, and you can find plenty of crash footage or lame music videos on the internet, but if you really like rally, or if you know someone who does, this is what you need to get. You really get a sense of just how challenging rally is, and how skilled Colin was, when they show you a good chunk of onboard footage, without overbearing music and without attention-deficit cutting between shots.

Basically, the definition of rally racing should include McRae's name, or maybe just a link to some footage of his driving. He defined the sport, and any fan of rallying should own this dvd.
