My first rallye car was a Simca 1100 , and crashed it during a rallye!!!.
My second was an Autobianchi Abarth (never imported in UK), and with it I done too many Rallies in France and 3 times in Ireland, during the ' Circuit of Ireland'. Il was in 1972, 1981, 1982. I had an accident near Lisburn (Northern Ireland), and I went to Belfast's hospital.
