Rally stars drive their favourite roads on video
05 December 2008 17:49
On the eve of the Wales Rally GB this weekend, CAR publishes a series of video exclusives, as we gather five rallying legends to talk us through their favourite driving roads around the globe:
• The final footage on Friday pits Group B legend Miki Biasion against St Remo dirt tracks
• Thursday's video takes double world champion Marcus Gronholm back to the forests of Finland
• Wednesday's clip shows Mikko Hirvonen on a rare Welsh road rally stage
• Watch Jimmy McRae in Ireland in Tuesday's video as he retraces road rally routes
• Monday's video has Ari Vatanen's guide to the Col de Turini. Handbrake well used
Ari Vatanen, Miki Biasion, Marcus Gronholm, Mikko Hirvoenen and Jimmy McRae star in our video series, as we take you from Monte Carlo to Finland, Wales to Italy. The videos, produced in association with Ford, put the rally drivers in the latest Ford Focus hot hatchbacks on some of the most gruelling roads in the world.
Each driver donated their time and fee to the Colin McRae Vision charity, in memory of the world champ who died last year. Click play on our video player beneath to watch the footage. And be sure to come back every day this week as we upload a new video every day.
