    Default 1980's world rally's on TV- R5 Turbo's galore!

    Hi All,

    Advertisement


    For those who have not been watching TV at 3:00pm each day! (Holidays are great)

    7MATE at 3:00pm each day is a program called Motor Mate. It has been showing the World Rally series from the 1980's every other day. Today was the 1984 Tour de Corse.

    It's great to watch real rally cars in competition including-
    R5 Turbo
    Peugeot
    Audi Quattro
    Lancia Martini
    Opal Manta and so many more.

    Drivers include-
    Markku Alen
    Jean Ragnotti
    Stig Blomqvist
    Massimo Biasion.

    If you don't remember the drivers or the cars you are indeed unfortunate but now is your chance to catch up to we oldies. Tune in or record for an hour of real rally adventures.

    That was the "Flying Fin" Ari Vatanen who signed with Peugeot in 84 I think? He had a very serious accident in 1985 while with Peugeot competing in Argentina. It was a 2 year recovery.
