1967 1000 Lakes

8 comments

  1. Just found a superb clip on You Tube of Timo Makinen on the Ouninpohja stage of the 1000 Lakes rally in GRX 195D the one where he drives the whole stage with his bonnet open with the 3rd fastest time, also with a snippet of the 1968 event.
    Timo is being interviewed (in Finnish) and his co-driver Pekka Keskitalois is also interviewed. The clip is just over 3 minutes long

  2. A translation might explain the sudden switch to 1968 (and pirated footage from the Castrol film 'The Flying Finns').
    What always intrigued me is what they used to prop the bonnet open in 67. It looks like a toasted sandwich with the bonnet catch protruding through it! or a section of a sun visor?
