BBC Rally Sprint 1983 part 1
Credit for the original cap. goes to angmo. This is BBC's "Rally Sprint"
from year 1983. It features a production (Group N I assume) Rover SD1 with
a few rally modifications including a 300 HP V8 and an MG METRO 1300 (not
the turbo version). I have extracted the
best I could out of the original video file. I am a BIG rally fan so
thought everyone should share in the goodness LOL. The F1 drivers are ;-
Danny Sullivan, Derek Warwick, John Watson, Nigel Mansell, the Rally
Drivers are ;- Jimmy McRae, Pentti Arikkala, Stig Blomqvist, and Tony Pond.
I mostly uploaded this as I am a big fan of the looks of the original
mini-METRO. However when I sat in a Metro turbo recently I was shocked to find that the
inside and controls and door slamming sound and smell are amost exactly the
same as a Morris Minor LOL.
Sorry about it being 720p even though it's originally only SD, but
Youtube removes far too much picture detail on 480p so I am finding that I
need 720p just to get SD levels of picture detail...
