Lovely quality footage of the 1973 RAC Sutton Park stage with footage of Stig trying hard to match times with Roger Clark in the RS1600.

I think you'll appreciate this one John! The quality and sound are excellent, Could it be a lost piece of film from Barrie Hinchcliffe Productions?

OH YES !!
The forestry bit with downhill left hander was Clipstone 1. I was spectating about a mile further along. Great footage and sound of Stig and Per charging.
Then after the rally had finished, I had a little practice (at rolling). Daft thing was I had driven the stage two months earlier on the Dukeries Rally.

Would that be Alistair Robertson of St Clair Motors, in Kirkcaldy?

Yes it is. Alistair, who passed away last year, had bought the orange car from Saab direct and collected it from the Competitions Dept in February 1975, just before competing with it on the Swedish Rally. I went to see him and the car in May 1975
as he was preparing to do the Scottish Rally in it in early June, and he let me have a drive in it around the back lanes of Kirkcaldy. Acceleration and sound was amazing.




The car was sold in 1976 and had a number of owners before languishing in a barn for 20-30 years in Wales.
It was bought and restored to modern rally spec by Francis Tuthill :-

I knew Alistair Robertson well, back in the 70s, when I had my 1st Saabs.
It's where I got my spares, and I bought one 900 from him, (MSP 90Y)
His sister always drove a 99 with the plate JOY 99 on it.

I wasn't aware that he'd passed away.
I had some communication with his son Iain back in 2012, when I was looking for a 96.
At that time he told me his father was in a home.

St Clair motors is still there, on the same, though somewhat reduced, site, run by Iain as far as I'm aware.
