Click to follow
Whatever the outcome of the RAC, the clan McRae already have a piece of history to celebrate. For the first time, all three famous Scots are competing on the same RAC.

While Colin heads the cast in pursuit of outright victory and the world championship, younger brother Alister and father Jimmy joust for honours in the two-litre class. Alister drives a Volkswagen Golf and Jimmy, five times British champion, and Hyundai. Alister, British champion two years ago, said: "I just hope dad isn't too competitive. I'm sure he won't be far off the pace."

Apart from Stig Blomqvist's Skoda, their competition will include Mark Higgins' Nissan, the Renaults of Robbie Head and Martin Rowe, and a quartet of Seats led by Gwyndaf Evans.
