With all the other stuff going on this week, I missed that Collin McRae, one of the very best drivers in the world died in a helicopter crash.

I often refer to to NASCAR drivers and F1 drivers as pansies/wimps/etc. (If you don't race in the rain, need tracks in perfect condition, and need constant communication with a spotter giving you the traffic conditions, you are a commuter with a lead foot, not a real racer.)

Collin and other Rally drivers are the heros of the sport, racing on any surface, in any weather, anywhere, any time.

And Collin was the best of the best.

With that in mind, I'm passing on thie tribute video where you can see a little bit of his racing:
