Watch Juha Kankkunen Dominate This Snowy RAC Rally

We turn the time machine’s dial back to 1993 this week, for the opening day of Britain’s RAC Rally. A Top Gear intro counts us into the rally footage (before it was a show about fat men punching producers, Top Gear beamed racing reports directly into Britons’ living rooms) wherein host Steve Lee notes that the RAC Rally will witness “the world’s best drivers tackle Britain’s worst weather.”
