Safari Rally 1981
The Safari Rally was legendary before it was ever included in the World Rally Championship.
Epic stages across the varied terrain of Kenya and East Africa, pushed drivers and cars to the limits. And that was before the weather or wildlife intervened.
Digitised from original 35mm film, this review of the 1981 edition of the rally shows the incredible challenge faced to finish every stage, let alone the entire rally.
There were 49 retirements and only 21 finishers, with locals such as Mehta and Kirkland to the fore.
A bonus feature on this disc is the inclusion of "Winning the Safari Rally" an account of the 1976 event which saw only 12 finishers of 61 entries.
The Safari Rally 1985-1991
Always one of the most physically demanding events on the WRC calendar, the Safari Rally holds a special place in many fans' hearts - deservedly so.
This collection of reviews shows just what made the Safari special, from the magnificent scenery to the crazy crowds, the dramatic weather conditions and the amazing local wildlife.
There's never been another race quite like it and, as the revival shows, the interest has never diminshed.
Watch in awe as a young Juha Kankkunen fights the terrain and his two-wheel drive Toyota Celica TCT to win his first WRC Rally title.
Ari Vatanen, Bjorn Waldegaard, Stig Blomqvist, Hannu Mikkola, Mikki Biasion and Timo Salonen are amongst the hopefuls trying to beat the clock, and the terrain, as they charge through enormous stages, some of which are over 2000kms long!
The footage might be thirty years old but it has stood the test of time well and the informative commentary sets it off perfectly.
