Video: Colin McRae + MG Metro 6R4 + biggest moment ever = crazy

Submitted by on November 26, 2011

Watch as Colin McRae has a huge moment and goes backwards down an escape road at 80mph in his MG Metro 6R4 on the Donegal Rally in 2006.

The moment occurs just after the 4min 20 mark as McRae and co-driver Nicky Grist were mixing it with the modern WRC machinery on the Carnhill Stage.  Afterwards McRae exclaims “fucking hell, that was lucky!” to which Grist says “Jesus!”

Feel free to fast forward to around 4:20 to see the heart-stopping near-miss, but stick around until the end of the video to hear Nicky Grist explain the reasons for the spin.
