did anyone see the goodwood festival of speed shows on speed channel last night. the saved, in my opinion, the best cars for the opening and closing segments. the last two cars up the hill were an old rwd celica turbo and petter in his rally gb winning car. petter did 11 doughnuts in three spots on the way up hangin out the window on one set and several more at the top of the hill. it was pretty cool! the second show will be on again at 3pm central time on sunday the 14th.

I got to see the old Rothmans MKII Escort. Thats the only rally car I got to see, and they weren't pushing in it. No donuts or drifts. But never the less its pretty wicked to see those old cars in good shape.

What year celica was that, 1985? Must have been this one according to you description...

yep thats the style of celica they had. not sure if its the same one but the driver (an old swede i think) said he won the ivory coast rally in the car he drove up the hill. his donuts on top were pretty cool. had alot more tire smoke than petter did.

editited for ethnicity correction, my daughter was distracting me when they said where he was from and i think i missed that issue of XS

>but the driver (an old finn i think)...

How about an old Swede who was recently named by Rally XS as the greatest rally driver ever!

I wish I had seen that. I have seen lots of footage of him back in the day in the Escort, but not a newer GrpB Celica.

Does anyone know if it will be on again?

My personal favorite was Rod Millen going after it with the Toyota Tundra pikes peak truck. He was all over the place when he was on the throttle and when he was on the brakes. Was a good show.
