To mark the 10th anniversary of the loss of 1995 World Rally champion Colin McRae on Friday, a special edition of The Autosport Podcast looks back at his life.
With contributions from Prodrive boss David Richards, former Subaru technical director David Lapworth, brother Alister McRae, rival co-driver Robert Reid and four-time WRC title winner Sebastien Ogier, McRae's legacy is discussed in depth.
Autosport rallies editor David Evans and rally commentator Colin Clark join Edd Straw to tell their favourite stories about McRae, and explain what made the Scot into a legend who transcended rallying.
McRae's early days under the wing of rallying father Jimmy, his title success with Subaru and many victories with the M-Sport Ford team are all discussed - as well as how changes to rallying mitigated against a driver like him in his later years.
There's also a look at what might have been had McRae's possible return for 2008 come off, with input from Richards.
