The Tour de Corse - one of the most demanding and most popular events on the World Rally Championship schedule.
The history of the rally in Corsica is brimming with stories of action, drama, controversy and, sadly, tragedy - including the deaths of the charismatic Henri Toivonen and co-driver Sergio Cresto.
This DVD brings together for the first time extensive highlights from eight years of the Tour de Corse, allowing you to ride alongside the biggest names in rallying. From 1984 to 1991 we see real action and watch the development of rallying, from the Group B era of the fire-spitting monsters to the ultra-competitive days of Group A.
We see legendary drivers including Auriol, Kankkunen, Alen and Biasion in action, and cars like the Lancia Delta being pushed to the limit on tight, twisting mountain special stages which tested the drivers, co-drivers and cars to breaking point - and beyond!
"This DVD features eight years of great footage of Corsica's all-tarmac rally. It starts with Markku Allen racing his Lancia 037 against Ari Vatanen's Peugeot 205 T16. There are other Group B cars like the Audi Quattro and Metro 6R4, but the film cuts to Group A cars after 90 minutes due to the death of Henri Toivonen at the 1986 rally. There's also in-car footage from 1990. Four stars" Auto Express
"The standout highlight is the in-car footage, showing just how demanding the Tour de Corse is, with sheer drops one side, mountains the other and spectators protected only by flimsy plastic tape: Oh-My-Good-God viewing" Track Driver
"There's a poignancy to this Tour de Corse DVD - Henri Toivonen's ill-fated Lancia Delta S4 adorns the cover...Duke's celebration of an island asphalt event loved by drivers and fans cover the period 1984-91 so it's packed with the greatest names and cars from the WRC's most exuberant period" Autosport
"In the era covered by this DVD, Corsica was home to some of the best rallies ever - and also some of the most tragic. There is a huge amount of footage and some wonderfully dodgy title music, as well as some amazing displays of skills. You can also see how the quality of the coverage seemed to go up a notch or two in 1990 with the revelation of the in-car camera" Evo
