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...
