Colin McRae 25 years a champion


Celebrate the 25th anniversary of Colin McRae’s World Championship title back in 1995 as he became the youngest ever world rally champion on the Colin McRae: 25 Years A Champion documentary.

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.

His achievement is celebrated in a new 30-minute WRC TV documentary called Colin McRae: 25 Years A Champion, in which father and five-time British champion Jimmy and Prodrive boss David Richards relive fond memories of the 1995 success.

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. Tragically he died in a helicopter crash in 2007 along with his son, Johnny, and two family friends.
