Oh joy! I needed a bit of car porn for this Friday!! Check out the Shakedown Rally San Marino 2013 video by Palbo46 as it will certainly be 4 minutes of pure rally bliss accompanied by great jumps, gravel and pure engine sounds!
As I found this current video of the San Marino Rally, I also stumbled up a video so aptly titled, “Legends are Forever” which was shot two years ago and features many historic rally cars that would compete at San Marino Rally 2011 in the Historics Class.. The first video is pure adrenaline, car porn with engine sounds!! The second, is pure beauty, action, intrigue and history.
Another fantastic weekend in San Marino, where rally fans from across the world can see, smell and hear some of the most legendary cars and drivers from rally history.
It has become a regular stop for some past rally world champions, such as Juha Kankkunen, Miki Biasion, Hannu Mikkola, Timo Salonen, Marcus Grönholm and others.
Range of cars includes WRC’s, group B cars like Lancia Stratos, this year marks the 40th anniversary from the introduction, Lancia Delta and 037, Audi Quattro and Sportquattro, Opel Ascona and Manta 400, Toyota Celica ST, Talbot Lotus, Ford Escort and many more.
This year marks the 25th anniversary from the tragic accident of Henri Toivonen on Tour de Corse Rally and his brother Harri drove ex-Henri’s Opel Manta 400 to honour the memory of the young talented driver, who is still an inspiration to many.
It is almost impossible to translate a weekend of action into a single clip as I believe you have to experience it for yourself. However, I hope you get the ‘picture’ of the event thru the video. Enjoy!
