While son Alister was winning the Showroom 2WD category for Mazda at Targa Tasmania last weekend, Jimmy McRae was being air lifted to hospital.
McRae Snr, a multiple British Rally Champion, was driving a Porsche 911 in round two of the British Historic Rally Championship, the Pirelli Historic Rally.
While battling for the lead, McRae crashed heavily and had to be air lifted to hospital with a cracked sternum and a badly damaged wrist that left him in a lot of pain.
McRae crashed a Ford Escort RS1800 in the 2006 Otago Rally in New Zealand, after starting the event with broken ribs after a pre-event bike accident.
From all reports, the Porsche will be repaired before the Scotsman.
