Colin McRae honoured in Scotland
- 31st January 2008, 10:27am
The County Saab Scottish Rally Championship has introduced a new award this year.
The Colin McRae ‘If in doubt .. flat out’ award will be presented annually in memory of Colin in future years. The first recipient received his trophy at the recent SRC awards ceremony, 19 year old Stevie Brown, who would appear to be keeping ‘certain traditions’ alive. He rolled his Nova on the Merrick Rally, then repaired it in time for the Tunnock’s Tour of Mull – where he rolled it again, but he’s a trier, nothing surer than that!
In other Colin McRae news, the Daily Record newspaper in Scotland has set up a fund to create a lasting memorial to one of Scotland’s sporting greats. In discussions with the local authorities in Lanarkshire and the Council in Lanark, they will seek to create and site a statue in Colin’s home town as a lasting memorial to a true world champion.
The statue is to be commissioned with renowned sculptor Kenneth Mackay.
