    1978 Southern Cross Rally Golf

    This is probably the first GTI brought into Australia

    I'm not old enough to know about the rally, but was old enough to catch the first two across the line - Fury, Bond - in action in the ATCC in the 80s as a young fan.

    I think this was the rally where they had to refuel mid stage on one section due to the length of it.
