He’s behind you...
Joe Breeze’s story on the ex-circuit of Ireland Audi quattro (June 2017) reminded me of when, while at St Andrews University in 1982, a friend asked if I wanted to join him following the Scottish Rally – he and girlfriend in his Mini, me in my Triumph Herald convertible.
One of the best moments was in a town between stages, stopped at traffic lights and hearing a rumble behind (hood down, of course). I looked in the mirror and there were Hannu Mikkola and Arne Hertz in LYV 4X. I grabbed my little happy-snapper, swung round and captured the moment [below]. When the lights changed, I let them pass at the earliest opportunity!
