Round 9 of the world rally series took place in Australia. The entry list for drivers read like a 'Who's Who' in the rally world and included Carlos Sainz (Toyota Celica GT-Four), Alex Fiori (Lancia Delta Integrale 16v), Mikael Ericsson (Toyota Celica GT-Four), Didier Auriol (Lancia Delta Integrale 16v), Kiyoshi Inoue (Mitsubishi Galant VR-4), "Possum" Bourn (Subaru Legacy 4WD Turbo) and Juha Kankkunen (Lancia Delta Integrale 16v). The stages were varied and presented a unique challenge which led to near desperate measures, including some inspired tyre-cutting by Michelin and Pirelli. Certainly one of the best rounds in the series and this excellent video is a worthy buy.
