Watching those rally stage clips of the '80s I couldn't help but think that if I had been one of the drivers at the time, I would've just refused to drive anymore, if they didn't do something about the specators. No motorsport is worth dying for and even if it wasn't my fault, injuring or killing someone by hitting them is something I wouldn't want to live with. Crazy.

Group B rallying was the most-ut. I have hours of VHS recordings from the ESPN glory days of covering WRC. Awesome stuff.

Altogether that was one of the most exciting things I've ever watched. Thank you!
And I was also one of those perplexed and amazed by Walter Röhrl's footwork. If I had that kind of coordination!
And I was also one of those who, upon seeing the first video, was exclaiming (out loud) "THOSE SPECTATORS WTF?!"
