    25 Years Ago Today

    36 seconds margin over his Spanish team mate was enough to give the late, great Colin McRae and his co-driver Derek Ringer the 1995 WRC title.

    Today I was stood on my allotment rather than in a forest however it only seems like yesterday that was getting blatted with gravel cheering them on.

    Was good to remember. I remember the stages we went to throughout that rally.
    Looking back tho, how awful were the engines with the smaller restriction plates in 1995...dreadful compared to the year before.

    A seminal moment for UK rallying; everything came together and produced a memorable occasion - probably never to be repeated.

    A huge buzz in the forests, massive nationwide media interest from TV, Radio, newspapers - it's hard to imagine it now. In fact, if you weren't there, or around at the time, you'll never really get it.

    The contrast with today couldn't be starker.

    Is there a better sound than that of Porsche engined Flat-6 ???

    Great times.

    Although his first win on the RAC (first Brit since R.Clark) and the following home wins were pretty special too.

    I had no doubt he would win it again in '95 and seal the title.
