Product description

"...if you have a soft spot for Metro 6R4s, Audi Quattros and Ford Sierra Cosworths you'll love it." Autocar

"Great stuff" Classic Ford

The ultra-fast tarmac stages of the Manx Rally have played host to some of the most thrilling and tension-filled high-speed showdowns the sport has ever seen. This awesome compilation brings together comprehensive highlights from six classic years, including some footage never previously released.

From 1984 to 1989 the Manx Rally played a pivotal role in the outcome of the British Open Championship, actually seeing the title winner decided five times in a row. The action-packed footage in this DVD lets you relive the drama and controversy from each year as the biggest names in rallying take on the challenging special stages of the Isle of Man, with the tight and twisting roads and lanes regularly living up to their reputation as car-breakers.

Manx Rallies of the 1980s features an all-star cast of great drivers, led by five-times British Champion Jimmy McRae, Russell Brookes, Mark Lovell, Malcolm Wilson, Tony Pond, Bertie Fisher and Pentti Airikkala, with stunning appearances by the likes of Roger Clark, Hannu Mikkola, Juha Kankkunen, Michelle Mouton and a young Colin McRae, who puts in a typically stunning performance.

There’s an equally impressive line-up of legendary cars, including the Ford RS200 and Metro 6R4 Group B monsters, the Opel Manta 400, Audi Quattro, Ford Sierra Cosworth, Vauxhall Astra GTE and more.

Enjoy amazing footage from a classic era of rallying, including plenty of in-car action courtesy of Jimmy McRae and Roger Clark, in Manx Rallies of the 1980s.

"Ingrained in British Rallying folklore, the Manx Rally and its fast, narrow lanes attracted top names and cars - particularly in the 1980s. Catch great Brits like McRae, Brookes and Pond scrapping with Mikkola, Mouton, and Blomqvist. Repetitive camera angles but worth the £15" Autosport

"Don't expect slick production on this DVD; it's been cobbled together from Manx Rally reports produced between 1984 and 1989. So the picture qulity is debateable, the camera work is occasionally shoddy and the commentary is frequently awful. However, if you have a soft spot for Metro 6R4s, Audi Quattros and Ford Sierra Cosworths you'll love it. The best year of all is 1989, when a Belgian chap called Patrick Snijers turned up in a BMW and wiped the floor with the British regulars. Trust us: you'll never see another M3 being abused so skillfully. (4 out of 5 stars)" Autocar

"Competition Fords have been tearing (and crashing) around the fast, tight and twisty lanes of the Isle of Man since the '60s, with the '80s arguably being the Manx Rally's finest hour. This new DVD documents those classic years featuring top RS200 and Cosworth action, and ace drivers, Tony Pond, Russell Brookes, Jimmy and Colin McRae, Malcolm Wilson and Roger Clark. Great stuff" Classic Ford
