Lots of SAAB footage, focussed on the 2 works cars, both listed as 96 Sport:
- #28 Erik Carlsson/Gunnar Palm, P44308, finished 2nd
- #17 Pat Moss (AKA Mrs Carlsson, and Stirling's sister)/Joy Mayers, P44309, finished 9th and 2nd in Ladies Cup
- plus another local entry private 96, #32 Keith Mayers/FJ Potter, KAY 70, finished 19th. KAY plate was early 50s, so much older than car. I wonder if Keith Mayers had any connection with Pat Moss's co-driver ...

(1)#28 Carlsson/Palm

Carlsson then gets stuck - /vehicle_401220-SAAB-Sport-96-1964.html - and has to roll his car over to get out of the mud - an incident which is relevant again later. He also drowns the engine in this waterhole, so Younghusband/Hechle in Cortina #4 stop to help and tow him back to life

Then after prize giving etc (he seems to have got a lot of pots for finishing 2nd :think: ), Carlsson re-enacts for the cheering crowds how he rolled the car over to get out of the mud

... which is famous footage we've got re-used in a few films.

Only just read that Erik Carlsson passed away in the last week, shortly after a fall at his home in Eaton Bray, Bedfordshire, UK.

Very sad news :( for those that followed rallying in the 1960s...

RIP Erik Carlsson March 5 1929 - May 27 2015
