The race you're watching finished 21 years ago. The results are in the public record, the championship is decided. So why is it so exciting to watch? Oh right, Stratos.
Truth be told, just about all vintage European Rallycross is still fantastic to watch. This is the qualifying for Round 8 of the ERC at Lydden Hill, where Top Gear did their feature. There's no question it's exciting to see those Porsches try and catch the tiny Lancia Stratos, often sideways and on three wheels. Righteous.
