A sad day for Subaru whatever model you own
« on: September 26, 2010, 03:16:48 AM »


A driver has been killed in the Colin McRae Forest Stages car rally in Aberfeldy, Perthshire.

The event was cancelled following the death, at about 1245 BST on Saturday, of Jimmy Girvan, 56.

The former Scottish Rally Champion's Subaru Impreza collided with boulders and then crashed into trees at the Griffin section of the course.

Mr Girvan's navigator, Mike Ramsay, was cut free from the vehicle, but he was not seriously hurt.

He was taken to Ninewells Hospital in Dundee where he was treated for an arm injury.

The rally is held in memory of world championship winning rally driver McRae who died in a helicopter crash three years ago.

Very sad news man,
I take comfort in the fact that he died doing what he loved doing!
Shame they cancelled the rally after, I do understand why they did it,
But if was Jimmy, would have wanted everyone to carry on as planned!
