Classic Adelaide Rally

So, did anybody else watch the footage from this years Classic Adelaide Rally on TV on Sunday, or even better, actually witness the event first person?

Some incredible pieces of motoring history were involved this year, and as usual, there were a few Escorts giving the more exotic cars a really hard time... And, also as usual, there were some spectacular crashes...

Re: Classic Adelaide Rally

Yeah i saw it on Sunday was pretty good, some nice machines in there.... One lucky guy got the chance to navigate with Stirling Moss, gave up his drive for that, wouldnt have a second thought about that one

Looked pretty good

cool Re: Classic Adelaide Rally

Love this event. I was out of town fishing on that weekend!

Spewing!

Still saw the highlights on TV and actually saw some of the cars in town on monday after the event.

I want to buy a MK1 Escort now and build it into a tarmac spec cruiser! (complete with 2l pinto) or Cosworth :D
