In this photographic history, expert photographer Manrico Martella covers the entire history of world rallying through his lens; from the early ‘70s to today.

Martella covered this great sport for 40 years, constantly searching for the right shot. As he described it, his goal was “catapulting the reader right into the heart of Kenya and its sand and unlimited sky; in the midst of Sweden’s ice or through the damp British forests.”
