For that reason the latest issue of 'UK Rally Scene' magazine (out last week) has more cars and personalities than rally news and reports. And yet it still provides an excellent reason to kick off the baffies, sit back and enjoy the read.
There's one tale in particular that brought the hairs on the back of my neck to upstanding prickliness. Co-driver, navigator, note reader and general good guy, Phil Sandham related an experience with one Drew Gallacher Esq.
What no-one could deny was his prowess behind the wheel. Even his detractors couldn't deny that. To see Drew at the wheel of a Mk2 provided a memory searing image. This was effortless fluidity in motion accompanied by a soundtrack that heightened the drama and the spectacle.
Phil captured that in his own recollections in this issue - in fact I had to reach for a tissue!
Anyway, the mag is on sale now. Just open up Ebay on the Internet and type in 'UK Rally Scene' - it's only a fiver including postage.
