Prodrive, the team that carried Colin McRae to the 1995 World Rally Championship title, has announced it is opening a book of condolence for the Scot following his death at the age of 39.

Once the book has been completed, it will be forwarded on to the McRae family.

"Colin was an amazingly talented driver," Prodrive chairman David Richards said. "He had a passion and commitment for the sport which I have rarely seen in anyone else. You knew that whenever he got behind the wheel of a car that he would extract every ounce of its performance. And it was this all or nothing approach to driving that won him so many fans."

The book will reside in the company's heritage centre, which includes the group A Subaru Impreza Colin drove to victory in the 1996 Catalyuna Rally. Fans are welcome to visit the Banbury headquarters to write their thoughts in the book and to view the heritage collection of cars at the same time.

The book will be open from 9am to 5pm, Monday to Friday.
