Racing Opel Commodore struts its stuff

This fantastic display of old school rally comes straight from the past as these two duke it out to see who can go faster. 

The video is all engine noise and tyre squeal as the Commodore takes pride of place, gleaming in yellow though a tough turn and then down a long straight. The best comes around 0.51, as the Opal slides sidewards across the screen, tyres smoking and brakes howling at the pressure the driver is putting them under. From the happy horn noises this driver must have been gunning it, and I hope with a performance like that he took home the gold. Enjoy the more stationary pictures below to get a real feel for this classic motor.
