Representatives from Colin McRae Vision will travel to Zlin in Czech Republic later this month to make a major financial donation to a charity based close to the route of round nine of the Intercontinental Rally Challenge, which takes place from 27-29 August.

Colin McRae Vision was established following the death of the rallying legend, his young son Johnny and two family friends in a helicopter accident in 2007, to improve health and education for children around the world.

In June of this year, Colin McRae Vision and Eurosport Events, the promoter of the IRC, formed an official partnership. One of the objectives of the alliance is to work with organisers of selected rounds of the IRC to identify suitable projects and initiatives that help young people.

Although full details of the donation amount and the beneficiary charity won't be revealed until next week, Jim McRae, Colin's father, will attend Barum Czech Rally Zlin to help make the presentation to the charity.

The presentation will be made on the start ramp prior to the rally getting underway at 17:00hrs local time.
