Opel Ascona 400: The reason why many probably remember the Ascona B series well is because of the rally version of the car. Built in 1981, the 1980 world champion Walter Röhrl took the car to victory and won the World Rally Championship drivers' title in the 1982 season.

This is a wallpaper that I created for a former website project of mine. This Wallpaper is based on a picture that was released by Opel/GM. 1982 Opel Ascona B 400

13 years ago today one of Irish rallying’s greats, Bertie Fisher (pictured), was killed in a helicopter crash. His son (and Peugeot UK works driver) Mark and daughter Emma also perished. All are sadly missed. RIP all three.
