Italy’s Sanremo Rally is one of international motorsport’s great events, combining hundreds of miles of tarmac and gravel stages to ensure the cars, drivers and teams are tested to the absolute limit. Dust, mist, rain, trees and unruly fans are just some of the obstacles the World Rally Championship’s biggest names faced as they battled to tame the Sanremo.
This DVD features comprehensive reviews of seven classic years from the Sanremo Rally, from 1985 – the era of the fire-breathing Group B monsters – to 1991 when Didier Auriol was the man to beat in Italy.
This is a fabulous opportunity to see the icons of rallying in flat-out action, including the Group B favourites like the Lancia 037 and Delta S4, the Audi Quattro Sport S1, Peugeot 205 T16 and Metro 6R4, plus the Group A giants like the Toyota Celica GT-4, Ford Sierra Cosworth and, of course, the all-conquering Lancia Delta HF.
Each year delivers drama, controversy and fabulous action, from Audi’s first Group B win to Italian delight as Miki Biasion scores a home win. During this turbulent period the Sanremo saw titles decided, victories secured by just seconds and rule decisions which shook the sport. Once again you can relive champions being crowned, legends being created and the jaw-dropping drama of the Sanremo at night!
The Sanremo Rally is classic and you’ll want to relive these unforgettable years again and again.
"This DVD offers three-and-a-half hours of footage from Italy's San Remo Rally in the era of greats like Carlos Sainz and Walter Rohrl. As you'd expect, it includes highlights of each stage on the tarmac and gravel event, as drivers dodged trees and fans to push through the dust, mist and rain. Four stars" Auto Express
