A 'Colin McRae wannabe' in Leeds was corrected that they were 'not a world rally champion driver' by police.

The Leeds District Off Road Bike Team were riding through Temple Newsam yesterday when the driver of the vehicle was sighted on the grass 'clearly thinking they were Colin McRae', police said.

They were stopped 'after a little catch up' and 'suitably corrected that they were not a world rally champion driver'.
