i'm always staggered at the speed rally drivers achieve on the most unstable surfaces- such a fine line between success and failure.
huge gonads required.

yup those rally drivers in that era had real balls of steel, no real regulations on design and power output and no crowd control it really was an exciting/thrilling "golden era" of rallying, but with inevitable tragedies waiting to happen
