It’s very likely that many of you (especially the most veterans, like myself), had the frustration of not having a properly sized 124 back in the day when the rallies of the Spanish Circuit were at their prime. If that would have been the case, we would have been able to compete, like in the real races, firstly with the always reliable and victorious Porche Carrera, and later against the Lancia Stratos of our beloved EXIN.
This is the main reason why Slot Classic brings you the chance to revisit the stunning crossings of our missed “taxis” (as we called them). They were driven by amazing pilots like Zanini, Cañellas, the unforgettable Jorge Babler, Pradera, Rizos, Carlos Trabado, Sousa… always helped by very professional copilots.
The chosen version belongs to the 1976 24 hours of Ypres. In the issue number 143 of “Formula” magazine, it is written that this was “the best ranking of a spanish pilot in an abroad race in rally category”. I couldn’t agree more.
Obviously I think that the performance of Salvador (second) and Antonio Zanini (fourth) deserve this humble tribute.
