So true. When the F1 website described Ken Block as a "Rally star" I cringed.

Kids these days.

fantastic stuff. nice work TJ. colin and all his work deserve so much respect, thats why ive got his sig on the back of the RS. but block is also a fantastic driver, not a rally hero in the true sense of the word, but bringing something new to the world of off road racing and rally influenced racing.

the new, younger generation will love block and say colin who? the older may have contempt for the new "fad" driving and drivers. i think im lucky to be in the middle and appreciate both for their own talents. however there will never be another colin mcrae, just like there will never be another brock or senna.

when in doubt, flat out.

Ken Block is not a fantastic driver.
Lets keep his stupid face out of this thread.

Thanks for sharing that TJ - sincerely.

I remember standing across from the intersection of Abany Highway/Armadale Road in 2005 when he pulled up at the lights in the Skoda. I waved like an idiot and he smiled. I miss Rally Australia.

It would be valued addition here tj. No doubt there are others who would be happy to help out.

My personal fav moment from Colin's life. (there are many!)

On 5 August 2006, McRae competed for Subaru in the first live televised American rally in Los Angeles as part of the X-Games. McRae rolled the car on the penultimate corner after landing awkwardly from a jump, which damaged the front bumper and left front tyre. Despite this, McRae kept the car running and continued on to the finish, his time only 0.13 seconds slower than eventual winner Travis Pastrana.

still watch the youtube clip of this race every few months.

Cheers for a great thread TJ!
