Video: Classic rally cars versus Mediterranean mountains

Small islands with tight twisty roads and classic rear-wheel-drive rally cars are a fine match as proven by the Tour de Corse. For six days in early October the single track roads of the hilly bits of Corsica resounded to the noise of Porsche flat-sixes, Ford Pinto fours and even a wailing Wankel in a first-generation Mazda RX-7. Flared wheel arches, tail-happy corner exits and period liveries, including a Renault 5 GT Turbo in Elf colours and a Jagermesieter Porsche 911 were also much in evidence.
