Or........ you could have four wheels off the ground.

Ah memories of rallying in the lanes. Put a ford 1700 x-flow under the bonnet and you can eat RS2000's for brekie!!!!

Appologies for the pic quality it is a scan of a print. Not many digi cameras about when I was rallying.

The event was the morning mist rally circa sometime last century!!!

Nice old skool motor, Osprey!!

Here's a few of my buddy Brian's S1600 Puma. I get the chance to sit in with him regularly for setting up the car and the odd recce now and again. Won the British & Irish Super 1600 Championships this year. He's bloody quick, and scares the s#*t outta me!

Prefer the old skool motors myself. A few pics of our current family project. Mk1 Escort 1600 x-flow. Engine is pretty much standard bar electronic ignition, K&N bolt-on and stainless manifold/exhaust. Plans are to bore her out a small bit and fit twin Webers. I just love the simplicity of them!

Here Here (or Hear Hear) to that.

Harking back to the days of real rallying in the '70s.
An old chum of mine caused the rules to be changed. I believe you now have to have at least 1 wheel on the ground when you cross the time control/finish line.
This rule came about after the person in question crossed the finish of Brechfa 2 in the Welsh Rally above head hight in a wheels up/roof down configuration.
The powers that be thought that this was a tad dangerous.
The car was a works replica Mk1 Escourt BDA. I say was because the only straight panel when he eventually landed was the flitch panel under the screen.

Yes I was horrified to see this - a really sad loss. Doesn't seem right somehow - all the dangers he faced everyday and to go like this.

I do recall Malcolm Wilson on one stage in the depths of Wales one year whizzing round a bend at about 110 with only three wheels on the car ... and it was icy ... ahh happy days!
