I was looking for footage of an old Mustang rallying in America, but instead found this clip of an Audi Sport Quattro wheeling through the Michigan forest back in 1985. You need to hear it.

This was at Press On Regardless, a strong contender for the meanest event in American rallying.

It's one thing to hear a Quattro's five-cylinder thrum and wastegate chatter from a close-mounted microphone. It's quite another to hear it loud, echoing through the trees on a period video camera. OK, now back to looking for more Mustangs.
