RALLY OF THE TESTS 2021
Rally pace will be relentless  Although attracting an entry of some 80 cars, only those manufactured or registered before the end of 1968 are eligible for overall awards. A very reasonable decision. After all, the event is designed as a rerun of fifties and sixties classic rallying, not as a road race between modern looking cars, such as hotted-up Volkswagens, Peugeot 205GTis and Porsches. T...
