Stunning driving..and car (not an Alfa!)- Colin Mcrae

There are stacks more vids of Colin and his Escort floating around the net, look out for the in-car stuff in particular:

This Escort was the realisation of a dream for McRae, who was always a fan of the old-school, sideways style of the seventies and eighties.  This one was loaded with modern tech.  Here's some info on the initial build:  http://www.djm-motorsport.co.uk/mkii_escort_mcrae.html

Absolutely amazing footage.  Some of the best in car control you'll ever see.

Thanks for sharing.

The only hard part I see that good rally drivers have to contend with is putting their pants on over the wheel barrow they carry their balls in... ;D

Brilliant talent..
