FROM HARROGATE IT STARTED
From Harrogate it Started is a unique view of the 1971 RAC Rally, where teams encountered some of the most extreme weather conditions the Rally had seen in years.
The weather provided a stunning backdrop to the dramatic action, which features rollovers, breakdowns and even one unlucky team who end up in a lake. The story is told using cameras inside the cars and trackside, and from audio radio bulletins with classic music from the era.
Helicopter cameras follow the cars on long, fast straights and there is plenty of footage of handbrake turns on the slippery corners.
This film features the very best drivers of the time including Roger Clark, Timo Makinen and Hannu Mikkola. Victory eventually went to a youthful looking Stig Blomqvist whose Saab was totally suited to the challenging conditions.
This classic Rally film has been Digitally Re-mastered and contains previously unseen footage.
