IRC: Loix takes Colin McRae trophy

Freddy Loix becomes the second winner of the Colin McRae IRC Flat Out Trophy
Freddy Loix has become the second winner of the Colin McRae IRC Flat Out Trophy, following his victory on Rali Vinho Madeira.

Loix was handed the prestigious award by a panel of judges consisting of the IRC's Motorsport Development Manager Jean-Pierre Nicolas, Gilbert Roy, the Director of Editorial and Programme Development for Eurosport Events, and Colin's father Jimmy McRae.

The 39-year-old took his second win in as many IRC events this season with a dominant display that saw him go fastest on 14 of the 21 all-asphalt special stages – with his victory made all the more remarkable by the fact he dislocated his shoulder just a fortnight before the event in a motorbike fall.

"I knew Colin very well because we did World Rally Championship events together for many years,” Loix said. “But on top of that we were friends and spent a lot of time at home on motorbikes. I knew him better as a friend than as a rally driver so this means a lot to me."
