Mcrae too high up
As a rally competitor and fan of 40 years standing, I really enjoyed the Motorsport News Rallying Special (August 24), especially the section on road rallying and Mick Briant. That is something close to my heart.
As for the league tables, like your vote for the greatest WRC drivers of all time (as voted for by the WRC drivers), they are always up for debate. There is no doubt about who is number one, Sebastien Loeb.
As for Colin Mcrae being voted in second place, come on? I would say fifth or sixth best. The man won one world championship and if he had not had a ridiculous attitude of ‘if in doubt, flat out’, then he might have won many more titles.
