Sideways at 118MPH in 1970…

This is by far one of my favourite photographs of my grandparents, seen here competing in the 1970 Total International Rally in 1970, which they proceeded to win overall, which in turn secured them their entry into the next years Monte Carlo Rally in the 240Z.

This photograph was taking when, according to my grandfather, “We were doing 118mph / 188.8kmh in a long left hander through a rock pass… Great fun!”
