Audi entered 3 cars into the 12 hours of Bathurst this year, and the #1 car came out on top after pouring rain and a kangaroo crossing the track!  These R8 LMS specially put forth for Bathurst looks sweeeeet!

1974 Don Capasco Rally

Is there anything cooler than vintage Super8 rally footage? I doubt it!

Here’s the description of this video provided:

“In 1974 Australia’s first European-style special-stage rally was won rather fittingly by a 1973 Group 4 Alpine Renault A110, the first marque to win the World Rally Championship. The Alpine, Bernard Darniche’s Morocco-winning car, was driven to victory by 1970 Australian Rally Champion Bob Watson. This amateur movie, shot on Super-8 film and with the sound recorded on cassette tapes, has survived transfer to VHS tape, and now to a digital format. There are voice-over interviews with Bob Watson, Geoff Ross, the late Peter Brock, and Gerry Ball. The quality may not be the best, but this is an important part of the history of rallying in Australia.”
