Ever since I was a little kid rallying has been one of my favourite motorsports, and even though I grew up through the Tommi Makinen era, I’ve always loved watching the 70′s and 80′s periods of rallying, the cars just seemed so much more alive and raw back then (especially the Group B cars), and this video from the 1977 Lombard RAC Rally definitely captures that. Its 10 minutes and 26 seconds of pure footage. No music, no slow mo, just some amazing sounding engines and very talented drivers.
So turn up the volume and enjoy…
