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.”

The most fabulous and victorious cars and the greatest drivers never got away from his eye, and now they’re on display in Rallies, with text by Emanuele Sanfront, sports journalist, ‘60s and ‘70s driver and navigator.
