Possibly the finest collection of rally videos that truly show what Rallying used to be like, both the good, the bad and the ugly...and simply stunning!!! The videos are predominantly very well edited clips from over the years to music, with some car sounds every now and then...but the atmosphere created by the images and sounds seem to just suit perfectly.
It is because I have seen much of that contained in the videos either first hand or when it first aired on TV, that I am so passionate about this sport ... watch these fantastic video's with a coffee and savour the truly EPIC sport that is Rallying...what it has been...what it was....and what it COULD be again.... with the right guidance...
Many thanks to DGR64 for such superb productions!

All the lads were approachable, with very few if any Prima donnas, and I have to admit to having been rat arsed with quite a few of the stars of the day, Roger, Pennti and Timo amongst others.
My everlasting memory is of Michelle Mouton and Fabricia Pons in the Quattro Sport on the Audi video, she was just incredible.
I was 34 th O/A on the notoriously rough 1971 RAC in a completely bog standard Austin 1800, and also drove the incredibly quick Turbo Charged Land Rover that Alan Allard prepared for me, it would pull 90mph in over drive 3rd, and over 110 in top.
Once again, thanks for the links,

Probably, but in this instance it's a potential problem for YouTube and not us.
One or two copyright issues there surely?

At 4 mins on the very first link there is a Landcrab being drifted through a fairly narrow donkey track any idea who the helmet less lunatic is filming out of the O/S back door window, who is driving and where ?
I am sure stuff like that wouldn't be allowed in this day and age
