Product description

Slow-motion sequences form part of this slick review of the 1984 1000 Lakes Rally, produced by renowned documentary filmmaker Barrie Hinchliffe.

Local Heroes frames the supercars of rallying against the beautiful lakes and forests of Finland. For rally drivers Hannu Mikkola, Stig Blomquist and Henri Toivonen there is little time to admire the scenery as they as they work totame the awesome power of their works machinery.

Watch out for the equally spectacular efforts of the up-and-coming local heroes who can jump just as high and far as the world championship leaders, despite power outputs well down on the works Audis, Peugeots and Lancias.

This is the event where Peugeot's new supermini, the 205 Turbo, promised to realise its great potential in the very capable hands of Ari Vatanen, whilst Stig Blomqvist in the short-wheel-based Audi Quattro was hoping to clinch the World Championship.

Whatever the outcome, it's first-class entertainment for the enthusiast and casual observer alike.
