High Pucker Factor Rally Video

Well worth a watch and listen.

Mini to Enter WRC

84 Audi Quattro Ensures High Pucker Factor

This is definitely worth viewing.  Not the most spectacular rally footage, but well produced and without a soundtrack.  Hearing the sounds of the car/driver action adds considerably to the experience.
