Racing Legends: Colin Mcrae
Olympic hero Sir Chris Hoy tells the story of Britain's first-ever World
Rally Champion, Colin McRae. Along with Colin's father, Jimmy, himself a
five-time British Rally Champion, Sir Chris visits the scenes of Colin's
greatest rally driving triumphs.
From exploring Colin's roots as a Scottish trials bikes champ to driving
the route of the Dakar rally over the dunes of the Sahara desert, Sir Chris
will re-live McRae's career and be trained to drive sideways by another big
fan - American Rally Superstar Ken Block. Sir Hoy's final challenge will be
to swap his push bike for a monster Subaru Impreza world rally car on a
rough and ready stage of the RAC Rally, the home of Colin's famous 1995
The Evolution Of The Drift Angle - 50 Years Sideways
If you're at all interested in the sport of rallying, and indeed sideways
motoring, then this is one documentary you shouldn't miss. It was created
by Helmut Deimel a few years ago now but it showcases 50 years of rally
motorsport all in one film.
Overall, some great footage is shown in the film including classic rally
imagery from the 1960s as well as ice rally footage from northern Europe.
The documentary also talks with some of the greatest rally drivers of all
time, such as Walter Rohrl, Stirling Moss and Timo Makinen, as well as
modern-day drivers such as Mika Hakkinen, Richard Burns and Juha Kankkunen.
The best aspect of the film though is that it features more than an hour of
sideways action from classic rally cars including the Mini Cooper, Porsche
911, Datsun 1600, Ford Escort, Audi Quattro and various Morris, Jaguar,
BMW, Citroen, Saab and Peugeot classics.
