Lot's of footage of Randy Black in the 510 (..or was it a newer model by then?) chasing down Taisto and others. I think there's footage from roads now ised at Baie des Chaleurs, at least all that red mud and a few of the corners looked familiar. Could it be from the Lobster Rally..?
Isn't this the video that Ted watches before every rally for "inspiriation"?
BTW, the rallysprint is 79 as Taisto is driving the older Celica and complains about not enough power from the 8 valve to keep up with Buffum's TR8, no such problem with the 16 valve
There's a scary moment in the rallysprint as someone, not sure who, gets submerged in a pond, it's a LONG time before the navigator surfaces! Our yellow blazered (CBC uniform of the day?) Brian gets quite concerned.
Doug, Les Taylor's co driver was Ken Humpfrey, not Dennis Wharton. The water that they went into was where gravel was washed and strained, so it wasn't the nicest place to be. Strange thing was that after about three hours after being under water; the windshield wipers and turn signals were still working on Les's car.
If it is the one I am thinking of (called the "Rallymaster" ) it was a production done by the CBC at the 1982 Lobster Rally but the show has an infussion of European footage with Ranu Altinen, Timo Salonen and Pentti.
In that show they also explain several rally driving techniques demonstrated by those drivers.
They also show Randy Black, Buffum, Taisto, etc. I don't remember seen anyone going into a pond so maybe this is another show.
Anyhow, Andrew next time you are in Calgary if you like you can see it, I actualy have a VHS copy (not a good one, it is a second generation)
It is a very well done production considering it was done about 20 years ago.
I often use some clips from that show at my Rally Driving School.
