The tragedies which had beset the Corsican round of the World Championship in previous years took its toll on the entry for the fifth round of the 1987 series, but the excitement of the event couldn't be denied. All eyes were on the BMW M3s, making their world debut. Bernard Beguin was in the Rothmans colours, while Marc Duez ran under the aegis of Prodrive BMW. Miki Biasion and Yves Loubet were expected to mount a considerable challenge in the works Lancia Delta. How did the factory Fords of Stig Blomqvist and Kalle Grundel fare? Or the up-and-coming Kenneth Eriksson (Volkswagen Golf GTi 16v)? The cameras capture the spectacular action on the tight and fast special stages.
