It’s the fourth ‘annual’ edition of McKlein’s rally annual, and although not a traditional annual like you would have seen in the 80s and 90s, it’s still a worthwhile addition to your library.
2017 was the first of McKlein’s annual rally book, and for those with the full collection, they sit nicely, and as the years go on, it’s a great collection to have.
Each rally of the 2021 season is looked at in depth, but not in a blow by blow sense.
The story is told succinctly, before branching off into the author’s ‘moving moments’.
Cue Takamoto Katsuta’s crash in Belgium, the Croatian ‘picnics’ and the challenges of the muddy recce of Argentina.
The stories are told from the perspective of competitors, organisers, and of the media.
It’s an all around look at the sport in the second year of COVID-19.
Focus also surrounds the departing World Rally Cars, and a long feature on Hannu Mikkola looks back on one of rallying’s greatest.
As always with McKlein, the words are adequately accompanied by image after image of photography genius.
Australian Molly Taylor even features – her finish in Estonia marks a mention, and even an image of her Rally3 car gets a look in.
Whether you’re a longtime book collector or looking at getting your first, we can recommend this one.
It’s on sale now, ready to ship, from the RallySport Magazine Shop.
