Ah yes...I once followed Hannu Mikkolla out of the Clocaenog (near Ruthin) stage to Chester. I was tail piping him all the way. Most of the traffic moved through to let him through with me stuck on his bumper ! He was driving the Audi Quattro then. I was in a MK1 Golf 1.6 Gls ...going flat out. No doubt he was on idle.That's fantastic stuff when was it? We used to go over to Chatsworth House in Derbyshire and the RAC was great in those days. We've just moved and I found some old photos of 1988 at Chatsworth so I've scanned them:
The top one is a Lancia Delta, and the bottom my mates Nova after trying to get out of the car park. After you did get out you could race along with the rally cars inbetween the stages, ahh the memories!!
LOL, amazing aren't they?! Was in Spain for Rally Catalunya 2004, and saw 4 different ones over the space of a weekend!! Only managed to get photos of 3, and only seen 1 at show in the UK (red and blue Philips Radio colours one)that r5 turbo 2 is giving me a woody !!!
God I hope I never meet you in a "Supercar Paddock" at Goodwood or similar it will be like "Call In The Cops he looks like a Walrus....." and we'll watch them get out their laser sights. It'll be be like a cull....of large beasts that can't run away.they really are the muts nuts I have the phillips one in my gt4 garage with my startos, lancia 205 T16 Turbo and my starion.
And there was the red one in never say never again this afternoon they just look so purposefull no nonsense design !!
