Very moving film. Such a tragic loss and at such a young age. What an immense talent he was. It's hard to believe that two of the worlds greatest ever rally drivers, both of them British, are no longer with us....... RIP Richard RIP Colin

A very moving film. I followed Richard's career right from the early days in the 205 challenge. It was obvious he was a star in the making, and he was well supported by David Williams. I was at the end of Margam in 2001, and got back to Felindre service park to see Richard and Robert arrive in the Subaru service area. Fantastic memories. Can't believe it is 10 years ago, and that we lost Richard just 4 years later, and then Colin as well. A great era of British rallying. Today's team bosses need to give other young British drivers with glimpses of talent the same chances.
