The incredible history of the World Rally Championship

From the humble beginnings in the early 1970s, the WRC has come a long way. Back then there wasn't even a world title for the drivers and it was won by, of all things, and Alpine A110! Since then the World Rally Championship has gone through so many changes a chameleon would be jealous, but each one has brought new and exciting times to the world of rallying. From the mighty Group B cars, through WRC-spec cars which made legends of the likes of Colin McRae and Tommi Makinen to today's machines, which are the fastest rally cars the world has ever seen. This is the history of this amazing championship all squeezed into just a few minutes. At Goodwood SpeedWeek presented by Mastercard we brought rallying to the Goodwood Motor Circuit for the very first time and we thought it was the perfect time to tell the story of the biggest off road championship of all, through the highest of highs to the very lowest of lows. #gwspeedweek #wrc #rally
