I drove this VW Golf when I was 18, in a rally, in south Sweden. It was my first time driving a rally car ever. I had Per Carlsson as co-driver and he helped me getting around the stage. I did not use any notes as there was no recce, if I remember correctly, but he helped me get around the stage just fine.
Driving this front wheel drive car was a lot of fun. This is where I first learned to left foot brake. A know-how that I then carried on into the 4wd machines I drove later. Very useful.
