Regarding the San Remo 1997 great video, I'll say this: being an old man I still regard the eighties as the absolute peak of Rallying. And I don't even mean the Group B era, epic as it was in its own right. I mean the latest years of the Group 4, 2WD cars (except the first Audi quattro, still a Group 4 but already 4WD). It was an amazing era to be a rally fan and I was lucky enough to watch them all being raced to their limit.
So, without further ado, I ask you all to watch this other San Remo video. This time 1981. Vid quality is sketchy but remember ... this was filmed by a rally fan from 42 years ago ...
Couple of things worthy of notice ...
it's only when you reach the 7th car that you get a repeat, it's the 2nd Fiat 131 Abarth, driven by the late great Attilio Bettega
(that's 1980's diversity for you, lol)
