Submission Thursday: The 1980 Welsh Rally
One Pro Tip we should have mentioned: if you’re going to send us a submission, please tell us who you are!
This was received by an anonymous emailer in my personal account. So it could be one of you, it could be one of my Facebook friends, or it could be a new stalker friend I haven’t managed to identify yet. Although there has been a white Mustang parked directly outside my apartment window a whole lot lately.
The camerawork in this is classic 1980s; simple, repetitive and not particularly dramatic. We could also say that it’s classic British, for the very same reasons, but that’s not very nice. Nevertheless, it’s worth watching because there are quite a few names sprinkled about that you might recognize. Stig Blomqvist springs to mind. As does Colin McRae.
There is also a vehicle featured called the Opel Ascona. That is close enough to the Opel Asscone that I can’t help but include it. That, and the quote, right at the beginning, that remarks that the Toyota Celica is such a big car, it’s no wonder the driver seems to have trouble man-handling it around the track.
If it was you who sent it to me, feel free to take credit so you may be properly thanked. And next time, give me your name.
Also, an added bonus that I stumbled across while watching this.
