Welcome to the 1988 European Rallycross Championship. Sit back and enjoy the explosive action! Who were the pacesetters for this eleven round championship? One man tipped to be a front-runner nearly didn't get to Round 1; Finland's Matti Alamaki was delayed by customs officials, and arrived just in time with his new Peugeot 205. Martin Schanche was one of the main threats to Alamaki. British interest was centred on Ford's Mark Rennison and MG Metro 6R4 driver Will Gollop. There was no rain in Spain, but Alamaki proved the driving force to reign throughout Europe!
