Yes, he was in a Rover SD1 from memory, and hit a truck that pulled across his path. That’s from my very ancient grey matter......

The saddest thing about the now beatified McRae was the people who also died in the accident . See also Graham Hill.....

As I mentioned up thread, the accident report makes for instructive reading.

The mention of Mike "The Bike" Hailwood being killed brought back my memories of him as I used to follow him in the 60/70s, he was a true racer who seemed to be able to win even if he didn't have the fastest bike out there, OK I know that his father was a wealthy man that did help in his career but he had a lot of natural ability that you can't buy ! Also this year Nicky Hayden an ex Moto GP champion was killed in Italy in a road crash whist out on his push bike.
Clay Regazzoni was also killed in a road crash

Sadly, natural causes, I would think.

Of course, the clock was ticking on Mike Hawthorn anyway because of his kidney disease. He only had a few more years at most, with or without the Guildford bypass.
