Having known Ari during his early days of Rallying in the United Kingdom I was privilaged to have been the Rally Correspondent for the BBC & numerous Independent Radio Stations that were coming on stream in the 1970's and early 1980's.

There are many hours of audio tapes in my archives plus the proud memories of producing a film for the BBC's Grandstand programme..The completed film of Ari Vatanen preparing for the 1980 Lombard Rac Rally as a member of the Finnish Defence Force is now re-edited and released on the World Wide Web

Enjoy , it is classic filming and the opportunity of a lifetime for all concerned. ALLAN PHILLIPS Telford Shropshire
