Manx Rally 1987

I can remember when I was only a few years old my dad showed me a video of the 1987 Manx Rally that he had recorded onto VHS. Having been at such an impressionable age I can remember watching this video all day every day. The only noise you could hear coming out of the living room was the waste gate chatter from s Sierra Cosworth or the evocative exhaust tone from an Audi Quattro.

Sure, Group B was gone and the Group A cars were undermined as being somewhat tame in comparison but seeing any quick car being driven around the Manx is something special. The video below is the exact footage I watched as a small child. I can't help but feel that it's videos like this that shaped my enthusiasm for cars and motorsport.
