1973 Thousand Lakes Rally

Post by oldirish33 » Sun Jan 06, 2019 11:19 am

Here is a link to an article and video on the 1973 Thousand Lakes Rally in Finland. The video is a BBC documentary which has a lot of rally action and also good reference material for rally cars of the period, conditions etc. Thought some might find it not only interesting, but useful.

Some classic old footage there...

Some interesting points Hannu Mikkola in a Volvo, Brian Culcheth in the most unlikeliest rally car a Morris Marina and the commentator is Fred Dineage - some in the UK will remember a kids programme he was on called How and he is still fronts the local news in the South!!

That was very interesting document :) Not only the rally scenes but also those scenes from 1973 Jyväskylä city.
