Rally cars in action on the Croft stage during the '74 RAC

Original photographs of cars taking part in this rally

Firstly, big thanks to Rob Ryder who took all the RAC photos on this page from the '74 event, and who allowed me to show them here.

All these colour photographs were taken by Rob as cars competed on the Croft stage in the Autumn of 1974.

All the regular rallycars are seen here, all of which are regarded as classics nowadays to greater or lesser extents! It's nice to see great rally machines such as the RS and Twin Cam Escorts, the Lancia Stratos, SAAB 96s, a big Volvo 140 series, and even a 1500cc Lada taking part. All the cars look like they've been driven hard, and their grimy-ness suggests that they (and perhaps the drivers) were less molly-coddled and manicured by works team staff than they are today! If you have some photos from this, or similar, events, and would be agreeable to them also being featured on oldclassiccar, please drop me a line (contact page).

To see more photos of classic and competition cars, please have a look at the car photographs page when you've finished here.

Historic rallying, using cars such as those featured below in their heyday, has a huge following - some of the cars that took part in the 2005 Rally of the Tests for instance, can be seen on this page!
