Colin McRae only won a single world rally championship, but he threw two others away by crashing the shit out of his cars. He remains rallying's most uh, enthusiastic champion. He passed away seven years ago today.

McRae didn't die in a rally accident. He crashed his helicopter back in 2007 with his son and two family friends onboard.

It only seems fair to remember him for his spectacular rally drives — sometimes to triumphant wins, just as often to crushing defeats.

What moment from his life best reflects his 'When in doubt, flat out' motto?
