This Guy was my Inspiration to become a Rally Driver

I remember how sideways he was before the corner when Rally cars needed the Scandinavian Flick to get round corners

He would be flat out then totally sideways under braking, seeing him on tv Leading Finland in 91 with the Delta before his throttle cable snapped was a lasting memory, he was so sideways everywhere with massive drifts using all the road

And again on the 91 RAC in the Delta again where he did win. This Guy was the absolute King of Rally back then, I recall him being in his element on the 93 Network Q R.A.C using snowbanks and no studded tyres were allowed

Also his amazing fight in Argentina 2000 beatin Burnsie
