COLIN McRAE, who died in a helicopter crash on Saturday, aged 39, was the Scottish rally driver who won the world championship in 1995, the first Briton to do so; his 25 WRC event wins brought him considerable international recognition and spread even among those who preferred virtual racing, when a computer game endorsed by him became the most successful console rally game ever.
