Default Tribute to the fallen: SCIC gather for McRae candlelight vigil.


Photos: Joey Chong
Text: Richard Pena

With the passing of one of WRC's most captivating drivers and personalities, many enthusiasts around the world were at a loss as to how best to mourn Colin McRae's demise. One SCIC member stepped up with an idea to help others to express their condolences. John Penano with help from other members, worked together to plan a candlelight vigil with moment of silence for the fallen driver and family. Starting out on a cool and calm Monday night at one of SCIC's long standing local meets at the Yorba Linda TGIF. More than 60 Subaru owners and rally enthusiasts appeared to show their support for the fallen Scotsman.



After gathering around to receive a memorial decal provided by Rally Innovations, drivers were grouped together for a casual drive to the vigil site. When it came to the place for the candlelight and headlight tribute John had found the perfect spot, Tri-city park in Placentia, CA. This park contains a man-made lake with two parking lots allowing owners to light up the lake in a bath of light emminating from both cars candles. All those in attendance found this location to be calming in helps to show a true appreciation for Colin and those on the helicopter. This provided solace for many and brought about a chance to share memories of Colin that everyone had. There were a lot of great stories from meeting him at Xgames, to his championship and even the classic videogame commercial of Colin growing up as a kid and stealing the family sedan to go rip up the scottish backroads. One thing is for sure he may be gone but he will never be forgotten. With this as a moment of closure for all, I was reminded of other Subaru Rally drivers that have been lost in the past few years. From former World Champ Richard Burns to cancer, Possum Bourne during a car accident en route to a local rally and both SRT USA driver and co-driver Mark Lovell and Michael "Beef" Park in an accident on a rally stage. The loss of Colin and all of these others should serve as a reminder that life is precious and to treat every moment as though you may not have tomorrow.

Rich & Joey,

Thanks for putting up this article and especially on the front page! I am truly touched by the support of our community. I hope we have made a difference in our community and spread our good faith to all!

Also, if any one wants the tribute sticker, just PM me. We are asking for dontations ($2) but it's not absolutely necessary.

Thanks,

John P.

We're glad to show how the NASIOC communities come together and help during times like these. We hope that showing this on the front page will inspire others on NASIOC and around the world that even though we are n internet forum we rally together to support each other and those around us.

Also it would have been up sooner but sifting through all the night shots made it difficult to find ones that really showed well due to the lighting.

That is REALLY, REALLY cool that you did that, SCIC dudes. I really wanted to do that and represent for the Tri-State guys, but I wasn't sure if they'd take me seriously. Awesome vigil for a great cause, kudos to SCIC.

Thanks! If you want to commit to set-up a vigil, I can assist you with the planning and also send you the decals to pass out. All it really takes is to set a date and scout a location where the vigil will be hosted and mass e-mailing people to spread the word. There's a little more detail on what went on that night, but most important, have a set plan. Let me know if you are interested and want me to help. Here's the link to our thread to give you some idea of how it was organized.

We can do the donation for all WRC dvds that are sold as well; not just the sub-zero dvd.
