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 moving video. I can remember meeting him at Ruawai and having a chat. In those days they turned up and jumped out of there cars and you could touch and talk with them. You could even walk around his car. He was telling the group of us (about 5 of us) how the cars clutch was not going well. That was in the Peugeot. I can remember the guy who in his england accent saying in england you could not do this as they had 10 deep layers of security around him. But here in New Zealand, in a little country township there he was. Amazing... the next year they put up barriers and you where 3-5m away from them. Some of the best memories with my dad was that years Rally. And I can say - I met Richard Burns and talked with him. A bloody nice guy....
