Munich or bust

It was quick, powerful, reliable and adaptable. With more finance – and imagination – BMW's rally contender could have been a serious rival to Escort and Stratos, writes John Davenport During the 1970s the Stratos was writing rally history. Following its first appearance in October 1974, it scored three straight world championship titles and won the inaugural FIA Cup for Drivers for Sandro Munari...
