    I usually don't like music in the car videos, but that was perfect!!!! Thanks for posting! The way some people get out in the road on those courses and then dodge the cars is crazy!!!!!!!!!! Thanks!

    The good old days of Group B monsters and gods like Vatanen, Toivoinen... And Michèle Mouton, who is arguably the best female racer ever...

    Thanks for sharing the great memories!

    I have never been into rallying, but now I am just blown away. The driving is amazing, that kind of car control is insane. I think I will start to follow rallying, that video was awesome. Thanks for Posting.

    We used to get WRC coverage in the 'states.
    Pou used to do annual WRC summaries to music, using the Speedvision footage: e.g. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gngH7hu6o_c

    Alas, when fox turned Speedvision into NasPinks garbage channel (just to have another place to "matrix" their ads), they dropped WRC coverage, replacing it with important coverage like monster truck drivers playing poker. :rolleyes:

    I've been hoping we could petition DirecTV to pick up eurosport (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VAB4e2gKx_M) or itv or some channel that still covers events not made up by some mouth-breathing self-proclaimed "programming" scammer, trying to attract the mindless consumer audience. (Do you get the impression that I'm annoyed at how fox has ruined everything they've touched? ;))

    Speed even dropped their delayed ROC coverage after the Nascar geek got locked out in round one, replacing it with a review of an SUV etc. But heck: he lost to Schumi!. What did Arnoux say after dijon: "At least I lost to the best."?

    Ah, those were the days.

    Jean-Claude Andruet in the 308, Walter Rohrl in the Audi's, the 131's and the Lancias. That great shot of the Fulvia. The Opel Ascona. All great rally cars...

    Think I'll go play some Rally Trophy.

    I am now convinced that rally spectators are suicidal.

    Great video. Thanks for sharing it. I was really disappointed when Speedvision dropped their WRC coverage.

    I'm glad your all enjoying this! Ive watched it a few times now - it just doesn't get boring. Group B were the days, that's for sure.

    I know rally is a love or hate thing, but this video was too good not to post.

    Impressive video.

    From my avatar you might imagine that I like rally cars.

    I thought I'd share this: my brother (who is 10 years older than me) did some low level rallying in the early eighties and took me along at the age of about eleven. We once went to see a rally in the Ardennes in Belgium. It was at night in the winter and it was cold, snowy. The road we took to walk up the moutain was frozen. I thought this was just a small path to the actual track where the cars would pass (these were the days of the Lancia 037, Audi quattro and Ford RS200). It was pitch dark when suddenly we heard the sound of a rallycar approaching, headlights blazing through the trees. I couldn't believe that they were actually using the icy path we walked earlier and going so fast! It was unbelievable. I still think that rally drivers have to be much more skilled than formula drivers. I have great respect for them. But it's also much more dangerous and I'm happy my brother didn't pursue his try at rallying any further.
