Celebrate the incredible life and career of one of Britain’s greatest sportsmen in this fantastic value 2-disc tribute to Colin McRae.

Colin McRae – Rally Legend
In 2007 a Duke production team was working closely with Colin McRae to produce the definitive DVD biography. Tragically, McRae, his son Johnny and two family friends died in a helicopter crash shortly after filming was complete.
With the full agreement of the McRae family, the unseen film was combined with the most incredible action footage from throughout McRae’s career to create the ultimate tribute to a true legend. In exclusive interviews, McRae talks frankly about his career and private life, opening up to friend and biographer Derick Allsop about the highs and lows, the rivals, the cars and more.
Action footage from throughout his stellar career is combined with film from 2007, including the Goodwood Festival of Speed, and appearances at events like the X-Games. There’s also touching contributions from family, including dad Jimmy, and colleagues like co-driver Nicky Grist and team bosses David Richards and Malcolm Wilson.
Colin McRae and Spanish rival Carlos Sainz went into the final round of the 1995 World Rally Championship tied on points, and with everything to play for. Great Britain would be host to a tension-packed title battle which would go right down to the wire.
This exceptional review programme charts the entire story of McRae’s heroic bid to become Britain’s first World Rally Champion, and how, in front of millions of devoted fans, he captured the sport’s ultimate prize on home soil.
The RAC 1995 review is packed with amazing action footage, including plenty from inside the leading cars, and interviews with the stars as the championship chase builds to its nail-biting climax.
