This book is the complete history of the International Welsh Rally. Hard cover, 360 A4 pages and over 600 B&W and colour photographs(most of which are previously unpublished) - it truly captures the spirit of the rally. The range of pictures is impressive with very rare colour photographs from the from the earliest events in the 1960's this carries through to the 1970's 80's & 90's when the final International Welsh Rally drew its last breath. The stories from top international drivers and co-drivers is compulsive reading with Mikkola, Vatanen, Waldegaard the late Pentti Airikkala amongst the dozens who re-live their experiences of the "Welsh". Each International rally is covered with an event report and pictures. Full entry lists and results plus top three stage times for each of the international rallies. The modern Welsh also has a chapter - this rally currently takes place on Epynt.
This is not a cheap digitally printed product but top quality traditional printing on high grade paper throughout and an investment for the future - as "Octane" magazine said in its review "We made this book our "book of the month" as its a lesson on how a motorsport book should be done, imaginative layout and the right mix of text and photographs" Limited availability.
