Late driver's car becomes centrepiece of exhibition
17 July 2009

The Subara Impreza that Colin McRae drove to become the world’s youngest ever World Rally Champion in is to go on display in Glasgow.

The car will be the centrepiece of a display at the new Riverside Museum that celebrate the 1995 title-holder’s life.

The car, which McRae drove when he was 27, has been loaned by his family, who will also help build the exhibition. The display will be regularly updated with further exhibits.

McRae and his son, Johnny, died in a helicopter crash in September 2007, along with two family friends.

Jimmy McRae, father of the late champion, said, “We hope that the display will inspire a new generation of drivers and also capture a little of the excitement and flair that Colin brought to the sport.”
