Colin with Ray 1986

1986 Scottish Rally Championship saw  a young seventeen year old make his rally debut in a Talbot Sunbeam. 

Having only driven on a single venue event (Kames) in 1985 in a  borrowed car (Hillman Avenger) Colin started out supported by his father ( rally driver Jimmy Mc Rae) and mother Margaret  and young brother Alister.

As a local to Lanarkshire, Colin and family were members of Coltness Car club who had an enthusiastic group of rally drivers based in around Hamilton at that time.

So on a cold and wet Saturday morning in February  1986 (usual rally weather) this picture was taken outside the front door of the Treetops Hotel in Aberdeen before the start of the Granite City Rally.  ( Also features Ray Tulloch in his Lotus twincam 1600 Escort)

From the start of his rally days Colin had the full support of a service crew and backup with no need to spend late nights in the garage preparing cars and putting them back together again ready for the next rally like the rest of the car club drivers. 

Being “totally wild” both in and out of the car and with no mechanical sympathy Colin set out on what was to be a  very successful career.  Driving his Talbot Sunbeam in Group 1  Colin finshed the rally in the mid 20’s out of around 100 cars that day and as we recall he was in the top 3 of his Group. 

The Scottish Championship in 1986 saw Ken Wood in his MG Metro 6R4 lift the overall chamionship.

Coltness Car club have continued to support Colin’s legacy  by organising the McRae Stages which was sponsored by Colin before he was tragically killed in his helicopter in 2007.

angle2 EINE REISE NACH SCHOTTLAND Porsche 356 A Bj. 1959 - sehr guter Zustand, für Rennen aufgebaut! Anzeige gefunden, sofort in das Auto verliebt - Anbieter Border Reivers?? Wo- Schottland?? Also, einen Flug gebucht nach Edinburgh und kurzer Hand auf die Insel geflogen. Ganz idyllisch ein Stück hinter Glasgow an einem See gelegen hat sich die Firma "Border Reivers" versteckt und auf hochwertige Autos spezialisiert. Der Inhaber - Tom Fitzsimmons ist mehr als freundlich uns hilfsbereit und versucht seinen Kunden fast jeden Wunsch von den Augen abzulesen, hat uns spät nachts noch zum Essen ausgeführt und kurz vor Mitternacht nach zurück nach Glasgow gefahren. Wir konnten in einer blitzsauberen Halle das Objekt der Begierde in aller Ruhe inspizieren (und alle anderen Auto's auch noch) und durften danach eine Probefahrt durch die Highlands absolvieren. Sämtliche Sonderwünsche und Umbauten wurden durch Border Reivers noch erledigt und gegen Entgelt wurde der Wagen noch bis vor die Haustüre in Deutschland geliefert. Ein wirklich perfekter und freundlicher Service der nicht selbstverständlich ist. Many thanks Tom, it was great to make business with you!

Quite a bit away from idyllic Glasgow situated on a lake,is where the company "Border Reivers" hides and specializes in high quality cars. The owner - Tom Fitzsimmons is more than friendly to us and very helpful. Caters to his customers every whim. He gave us late night run to Glasgow for a meat, shortly before midnight after back after it. We were in a spotless showroom, full of the objects of desire. He gave us peace to inspect and allowed us to undergo a test drive through the highlands afterwards. We agreed the purchase and some special requests and modifications to be carried out which were done by Border Reivers. We paid for the car and it was delivered to our doorstep in Munich, Germany in a covered transporter. A truly perfect and friendly service which is not self-evident. Many thanks Tom, it was great to do business with you! ThomasEder aus Bayern Thomas Eder Racing his Porsche at the Nurburgring
