A Rally Favourite

One from my archives – Marku Alen and Ilkka Kivimaki in the fabulous Lancia Stratos at the finish of the 1979 Lombard RAC Rally.

This car led in 1979 for the first 10 or so stages, then developed a few issues (brakes) before fighting back for a fifth place finish. One of my favourite rally cars of all time.

I was eleven years old when I took this using a Halina 110 with external flash (as I remember, its a long time ago!)
