He’s be­hind you...

Classic Cars (UK) - - Letter -

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!
