1986 Galway Rally. Coleman, McHale, Al Hajri
The classic days of Irish rallying. Austin McHale in the black Dealer Opel
Team Manta against Billy Coleman in the Rothmans Porsche 911 and Bertie
Fisher- also Manta mounted. the Rothmans Team also brought Saeed Al Hajri
in a 911 and despite being new to the Irish stages and weather conditions,
performs admirably. Fisher has the dubious honour of carrying the onboard
camera and the coverage of his famous broken caliper moment is still as
scary as ever.....

WRC Wales Rally GB CRASH 2011 SS16 ( should have been STOPPED!!) Rallying
It was painfull to watch these drivers giving their all, unaware of the
massive hole that had appeared the other side fo the jump, the sound of
laughter comes from spectators who had been drinking heavily.spectators can
be heard calling for the cars to be slowed down.It took jason Pritchards
navigator to get the marshals in gear. I think Craig Breen owes him a few
beers!!! gutted for Elfyn Evans and Jason. Produced with CyberLink
