Enjoy 8)

Epic, Tony Pond = Legend :)

Carl.

Cheers Mick.

I love the Pathe News (esque) commentary and that Nissan 240RS

Watching it at work with the sound off, but why did Mikkola (my childhood hero, for reference) de-sticker the Quattro when it retired?

I wondered that, its not explained maybe once you're out, you have to remove your competitor numbers from the car?

BTW Good find Mick!

How good do the Manta 400s look, and the Escorts just look so right 8)

Is that Dickie Davies?

Lots of memories there and plenty of good links also (saved).

Thanks for posting 8)

Great vid...

Although I prefer this Manx edition. Even if Snijers is a real *rse, he is responsable for at least one great drive!

No doubt so he can drive it back on the roads, as it's illegal to have a number showing - although now they just put a line of black electrical tape through it to show they're not competing.

Awesome find, Mick.

Maybe it's time to ban 4WD in rallying?

Can't believe my mate had a this correctness nearly 20 years ago:
His was the spit of this but with gunmetal GT/E alloys, it also had the 2.2 Cam in head Carlton engine with a big twin choke weber and would happily eat the GT/E. Used to drift for fun on wet roundabouts. He chopped it in for a bodykitted Rover 820 auto that ate gearboxes and wasn't really any good.

Great vid. Driving in the fog that fast - proper commitment :shock: 8)

I love the rivalry between Brookes, McRae and Pond.

Yes, yes, yes, I'm doing that all the time. You don't have to remind me every 10 seconds.
