Sad news another rallying legend passed away yesterday at 78, a great life cut short.
I saw him hustle the Quatro around the special rally stage he designed for Goodwood totally effortlessly it seemed which is the difference between great and also ran, a real Masterclass.
Hannu

Very sad to hear. One of my great rally heroes.

A stalwart of the Ford Escort team with Roger Clark and Timo Makinen.

One of the greatest in the golden years of rallying, RIP and thanks for the pleasure you gave in freezing cold forests in the middle of the night.

R.I.P. Hannu, apparently the only Flying Finn whose name doesn't end in 'nen'.

As an aside I always loved Tommi Makinen's dead pan answers to the idiot reporters stating the bloody obvious, they cracked me up... and always delivered with those smiling eyes thumbs

Had the pleasure of a ride with Hannu in a Quatro when he first went to Audi, driving the Trentham gardens stage as a shake down for the RAC rally, 4 wheel drive in a car was all ver new but he had no problem mastering it, a very special driver indeed
