for me, the most memorable sound comes from rallying…..
sitting in a forest, just as dawn arrives, course car has been through, now waiting for the first ‘real’ car. then you hear it. it’s still 3 miles away, but that unmistakable 5 cylinder brutish bark of the audi quattro s1 group b beast on full chat first hits you. the doppler shift builds the anticipation. as it rockets towards you, the 500hp monster looms out of the trees, the sound building into a crescendo. you step back as the car showers you in gravel, spitting flame as it passes. and then it’s gone. your first experience of a group b s1 is firmly etched and THAT sound will remain with you forever.
