This stunning collection of historic rarities – part of the
Ford Archive Gems series – brings together three classic rallying films from
the 1960s and ‘70s to offer a unique insight into a golden era of rallying and
a rare chance to learn the tricks of the trade from some of the greatest
drivers ever to grace a special stage!
‘Rally Driving’, from 1973, is a masterclass in the art by
Scandinavian legends Timo Makinen, Hannu Mikkola and England’s Roger Albert Clark.
Join these stars of yesteryear as they demonstrate how to put a full-blooded
Ford rally car through the most challenging of stages. From classroom to
cockpit, this is a fascinating insight into the skills of these legends. It
also features the wry observations of blockbusting writer Jilly Cooper.
In 1979’s ‘Special Stage’ renowned English sportscaster
Dickie Davies spends four days learning to tackle a Ford Escort rally car
alongside Clark. Staggering on-board footage of the master at work is brought
to life by ‘co-driver’ Davies’ lively commentary as they tear around the forest
‘Seven Survivors’ chronicles the 1963 East African Safari,
which saw more than 80 cars set out for the 3,200 miles of competition over
some of the toughest terrain in the world; just seven made it back. Rally
greats including Pat Moss and Erik Carlsson are featured in this rare film.
