If you’re at all interested in the sport of rallying, and indeed sideways motoring, then this is one documentary you shouldn’t miss. It was created by Helmut Deimel a few years ago now but it showcases 50 years of rally motorsport all in one film. It’s now been thrown up onto YouTube.
It’s a rather long video (around 1hr 30mins), so if you’re at work, it’s probably best to save it to favourites until you get home, or at least make sure the boss has gone home for the day. Overall, some great footage is shown in the film including classic rally imagery from the 1960s as well as ice rally footage from northern Europe.
The documentary also talks with some of the greatest rally drivers of all time, such as Walter Rohrl, Stirling Moss and Timo Makinen, as well as modern-day drivers such as Mika Hakkinen, Richard Burns and Juha Kankkunen.
The best aspect of the film though is that it features more than an hour of sideways action from classic rally cars including the Mini Cooper, Porsche 911, Datsun 1600, Ford Escort, Audi Quattro and various Morris, Jaguar, BMW, Citroen, Saab and Peugeot classics. Take a look below.
