1982 RAC Lombard Rally

Some awesome - never before viewed - photos have recently been scanned and posted.   Cool pics of Buffum's battle-scarred quattro!  Click here for full gallery.

Buffum set several fastest stage times, was running 5th but wound up 12th.

Mikkola won the rally.  I seem to recall that he ran with Buffum's BBS wheels & BF Goodrich tires during some stages (shown here).  Buffum ran the same BF Goodrich street tires as he always did in the US and Mikkola preferred them over the crap Kleber gravel tires the werks team was contracted to use for the season.
