We have all seen those rally videos (although some will have lived it), of the Group B and Group A days of rally where fans lined the road only spreading at the last second as a car thundered through, as if they where parting the Red Sea. Well it's now 2016, and in most parts of the world this type of magical, death-defying spectator sport is not condoned to keep those mad fans safe.

But at the annual Rally Legend event in San Marino, it's all part and parcel of the event. Group B and Group A machines pushing hard, most with the original drivers, and mad fans loving every damn minute of it. In short Rally Legend showcases the best drivers, with the best cars, and on some of the best rally roads in the world. We have full event coverage in NZ Performance Car Issue No. 241, in stores from Monday, November 20 (or order a copy below), but we wanted to show you all just how wild this event actually is. Keep your eyes peeled for a very sideways Paddon in this video.

Marcus Gibson has spent his life getting a little grease under his fingernails growing up with a fascination for all things loud, fast, and low. Growing up during the boom of the import scene, the last ten years have seen him work for a few publications, as well as running his own website before taking up a role at NZ Performance Car in 2011. Marcus is as at home with a keyboard or camera in-hand as he is getting dirty in his workshop or at the track, championing that Kiwi DIY attitude.
