Awesome.. thanks! Lots of good times at rallies back then......

Something of interest.... at 3:23 and a few other times in the film, you can hear a burbling howl out of the Quattro as the driver pulls out of the throttle. This was a characteristic sound of those Quattro's and comes from the turbo violently stalling when the throttle is quickly closed; they did not have blow-off valves on them at that time. You always knew the Quattros from that sound and the distinct low-pitched growl of the inline 5 cylinder. Opels were much higher revving.
