Going sideways takes many forms. There’s the artist – Colin McRae – World Rally Champion who somehow won myriad rallies without wipers on his side windows. And then there’s your mate’s Corsa with milk-crates under the rear wheels. Comparing the two is like taste-testing your Nan’s lasagne against a plate of cold toad. Impossible. And that’s why, in Series 28, Chris Harris presented a piece all about Colin’s journey to becoming WRC champion, and not a film about your mate Reg’s VXR. Here’s Harris getting behind the wheel of the very car that took McRae to the podium.Want to watch the full film?

colin mcrae in the empresa in that impressa well that’s rallying this is the actual championship winning car from 1995 still owned by Collins family I don’t think it’s been driven by many people outside of the family and I think it is for me the most important car in my motorsport history and it in in the 30 years that I’ve loved racing I can’t think of a more significant piece of automotive history this was the last time I think that motorsport showed that you could win on a Sunday and sell on a Monday there’s an instant cult people kept buying them they were everywhere and it was all because a Scottish driver went out and drove it like a madman and they painted it blue an instant icon when it’s here now and I’ve been told I can drive it so they say never meet your heroes the steering is so far between the show take a look young drivers when Tibet going McKee calling was always hundred percent committed it was no chance that he was going to give up he was going to to slow down I only wonder what he’d be doing now and you could guarantee it would be something to do before wheels we will probably be going sideways really quickly
