Product Description

During 2007, a Duke production team were tasked to produce the definitive documentary about Colin McRae. With full access to all the WRC recordings of Colin's championship years plus other rally and family archive, director Mark Cross was able to compile the most comprehensive career record yet of this remarkable sportsman. Working closely with Colin McRae Motorsport Ltd, we also had rare and exclusive access to Colin during a hectic year in which he was about to launch his first production rally car (the amazing R4), was contracted to the X-raid BMW team for Dakar 2008, was involved in the launch of the latest version of his hugely successful computer game ‘Colin McRae-DIRT’ and was seriously considering a return to the WRC.

The crew also joined Colin driving the R4 in public for the first time at Goodwood and thrilling the crowds in his unique Ford Escort Mk 2 at the Manx National rally. Finally, in late August, only a few weeks before the tragic accident that claimed the lives of Colin, his son Johnny and two family friends, we were especially privileged to spend two days in Lanark with Colin and his family. Here Colin talked candidly about every aspect of his career and life; his favourite and not-so-favourite, drives, events, teams; his plans for the future.

This then is his story. The story of a true rally legend.

Given the close proximity of this DVD release to the death of McRae you can be forgiven for thinking this is one of those cheap "cash in" efforts, on the contrary however, this DVD was already being compiled as a document of his life in the weeks prior to his death. It is this which really makes the main feature of the DVD that much more poignant, as instead of other people discussing his life story, it is being told by McRae himself.

The main bulk of the DVD comprises a comprehensive history of McRae's career in motorsport, interspersed with interviews from colleagues, friends and the great man himself. The main feature concludes with a detailed review of his most recent projects, including a look at the R4 and its debut performance at Goodwood. A number of extras are also included and, as with the main feature, all of these are high quality, well edited segments of footage.

In terms of the technical aspects of the DVD I can find no fault either. Some Duke titles I've owned in the past have had inaccurate commentary, poor menus and rubbish audio, but this DVD can be accused of none of these. My only minor gripe (and this is MINOR), is that there isn't more footage of some of his latter motorsport endeavours (Dakar, Le Mans etc.), but I appreciate that a DVD only has so much space on it and that the rally footage is most deserving.

I was lucky enough to see McRae driving at his last public performance; but irrespective of whether you saw him in action on a stage, on TV, or if you're a motorsport fan whose never seen him at all, I cannot recommend this DVD enough.

This DVD just makes Colin's loss the greater as it shows his journey to maturity from motorsport hot-head to happy and contented family guy.
After spending many years watching his incredible driving first hand in the freezing bowels of numerous forest stages I find this to be a great tribute to one of the worlds all time greatest competitors.

Nice DVD, although not much new material is shown compared to other documentaries such as "Colin McRae Born To Race" and "Colin Mcrae Tribute Pedal To The Metal". Unique selling point will be the interviews with Colin and his family.

For the fans of the cars and the sport it is a pity that the guys at Duke add music to the videos of the rally cars. A fan like me rather hears the cars and drivers without the disturbance.

Considering you can find this dvd dead cheap it's hard to justify not to buy this. The documentarist had some unfortunate luck being able to follow Colin's life in the year he untimely died, which gives this film an extra emotional stir. Apart from interviews this dvd of course shows lots of footage throughout Colin's career, displaying also his early talents.

For Finnish fans, take note that extras include several on-board stages from Arctic Lapland Rally 1992 with some Colin-alike close calls of course! There's also plenty of, but often seen footage from Colin's legendary first visit to 1000 Lakes.
