Mcrae too high up

Motor Sport News - - Sporting Scene -

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.

Top pro­fes­sional driv­ers race with their head as well as their heart. Phil Har­daker West Yorks
