    Tough choice!

    IMO there are only a few truly significant drives these past few decades -- only a few instances where the crew did something really remarkable. The trouble is that the videos from those events are rare, or poor. Here's two:

    1. Walter Roehrl, Audi Sport Quattro S1 at San Remo in 1985.
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CIdOH...eature=related

    The mid-engined 4WD cars should have won. Roehrl was using an open diff on tarmac, but a closed diff on gravel.

    He beat everyone not because of the car, but because he is the best in history. The video doesn't get that across but it's all I can find.

    2. Patrick Snijers, BMW M3 at the Isle of Man in 1988.
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZJB8B...os=xfSCgrGhZ3w

    The car was at least five years behind the times when it was launched. Snijers simply didn't take no for an answer and manhandled a basically primitive car. It was spectacular for the fans.

    I believe from 2004. Phil Mills has hardly enough time to take a breath.

    UGH facepalm x <-->

    This is nothing remotely close to rally, or good rally driving so lets keep the Kenny G fan-boy crap in the other threads and not taint this thread with them.

    These two tribute videos make me smile every time....

    I do love that satisfying solid and secure metallic thud sound that comes from German doors.

    While I'm on the subject of tribute videos, here are two more good ones. They're kind of sad to watch though. The Colin Mcrae one will give you tingly feelings.

    RAC Rally, Henri Toivonen winning it twenty years after his father (multipart video; this is part 1):

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Xme1baBqpaE

    This was the car's first rally, and they simply beat everyone! Lancia were, are, and always will be the best team in the world, but even they didn't quite expect Toivonen to win the thing outright first time round.

    No, he's a talented driver, there's no doubt about it. However, he seems to lack the discipline of rally legends. This can be generalized for many of the current x-games champions. I feel as though x-games type "rallying" is centric to showboating and advertising more than rally demonstrations of the past.
