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...
BBC Rally Sprint 1983 - Race
The race portion of the 1983 BBC Rally Sprint. Four Grand Prix drivers
versus four Rally drivers in a 10 lap sprint around Donington Park National
circuit in identical MG Maestros. Grand Prix drivers: Nigel Mansell, John
Watson, Danny Sullivan and Derek Warwick. Rally drivers: Tony Pond, Pentti
Arrikala, Stig Blomqvist and Jim McRae.
Tony Pond IOM TT Challenge Rover Vitesse 100mph lap record
In 1990 Tony Pond one of the greatest British drivers laps the Isle of Man
TT course in a Rover 827 Vitesse averaging 102 mph.
For me this is an incredible lap in a car that is far better than it was
given credit for.
Can you imagine someone trying that in a Ford Granada or BMW 520 or
Citroen, Renault, Vauxhall or any other similar priced cars in the Rover
As said below by liverush24 this was to show how good the Rover is and at
the same time Tony Pond showed how brilliant a driver he is.
He did that lap with an average of over 100mph through those narrow lanes
and country roads, find other 100mph average laps and get a true
perspective of the achievement.
Higgins lap to is impressive and a great achievement but done in a modern
lightweight state of the art, turbo
charged rally car with computer controlled 4 wheel drive to save you in big
moments, ABS etc etc, Ponds lap is in an 80's front wheel drive production
car with a about 180hp, that is truly brilliant.
