This is how they rolled (literally) on Monte Carlo at the dawn of the 1960s. Set an hour aside to watch this blue-tinted, colour footage.

British Pathé is a wonderful thing as it was proven many times over. In preparing for the Monte Carlo Rally in late January, here is some of their archive footage from 1960, when they were literally "rallying". Newsreel, documentary, outtakes, unissued material. The best of the Minis & co.


I will be at the Col de Turini during the 2015 rally, spreading your word there if you wish, documenting whatever you want me to document. Click for the #missionmonte project.
