Colin Mcrae - The Most Amazing & Talented Rally Driver
He was one of the most famous & talented rally drivers the world has ever
seen. He was definitely the best in conquering the hearts of his fans.With
the Subaru Impreza WRX STi, he won several World Championships and since
then the Suparu Impreza is associated with his name. Colin Mc Rae was
famous and loved by the fans because of his crazy driving style and his way
to handle car damages and problems himself, most of the time, just with raw
force. During the Rallies, he always preferred to repair his cars himself.
Colin McRae was the 1991 and 1992 British Rally Champion and, in 1995
became the first British person and the youngest to win the World Rally
Championship Drivers' title, a record he still holds.
McRae's outstanding performance with the Subaru World Rally Team enabled
the team to win the World Rally Championship Constructors' title three
times in succession in 1995, 1996 and 1997. After a four-year spell with
the Ford Motor Co. team, which saw McRae win nine events, he moved to
Citroën World Rally Team in 2003 where, despite not winning an event, he
helped them win the first of their three consecutive manufacturers' titles.
He was appointed a Member of the Order of the British Empire for services
to motorsport in 1996.
McRae died in 2007 when the helicopter he was piloting crashed near his
home. The accident also claimed the lives of his son and two family
friends. In November 2008 he was posthumously inducted into the Scottish
Sports Hall of Fame.

THE RAREST 22B OF THEM ALL
The chassis number of this incredible 22B is 000/000, so essentially, STi
created 401 of these cars with the example in the video used as a
demonstration car back in 1999 and this is the most exclusive chassis of
them all. It is a rare treat for Subaru STi to allow anyone to have access
to the car but I was able to get in and around it for this exclusive
It has travelled 20,000 kilometers since new and is in absolutely
immaculate condition. Unfortunately it will likely never turn a wheel in
anger again. How does that make you feel?
Should this car be confined to a museum piece or should Subaru continue to
use it as a public track and event showpiece?
Also in this video is a short tour of Sti Mitaka's amazing collection of
rally cars including Colin McRae's 1998 3rd place finishing SanRemo Impreza
plus a couple of Petter Solbergs GDB and GRB WRC rally cars as well.
Mitaka Subaru is open to the public and visitors are welcome during office
hours 9am-11am and 12:40pm~5pm, from Monday to Friday except public and
To access STi Mitaka, take the Orange JR Chuo Line (RAPID) from Tokyo or
Tachikawa and get off at JR Musashi Sakai station. From there head to the
bus stations just outside and take a bus to the International Christian
University for Women and get off just outside the university - Subaru
Mitaka is right next door.
FROM TOKYO STATION ^^
