San Marino is known in the UK for being generally awful at football (written before the England versus San Marino game on the evening of 15th November, so that might age badly). However, something they have in abundance is beautiful countryside – all of which is perfect to throw a rally car around.

RallyLegend 2021 is one such event where we get to see some of the most iconic rally cars of years gone by (and a Lada), still being thrashed to within an inch of their lives.
Things start off relatively slow with a creeping Subaru Legacy, but before you know it, you have an Audi S1 Pikes Peak, a Lancia 037 followed by an Escort that’s firing like it’s all-out war. Music to the ears.
If your rally pickle hasn’t been tickled yet, then the sideways Ladas and Skodas will surely do the trick.
There is a rally car for almost every genre of rally fan here, so sit back, relax and watch them be put to some proper use. Let us know what your favourite was.
