World Champion Tommi Makinen started the 1998 World Rally Championship with hopes of securing a third title in a row. However, the Flying Finn would have to overcome strong challenges from Colin McRae, Richard Burns, Carlos Sainz and more to take the crown. This excellent review delivers fast and furious action from all 13 rounds as the finest drivers in the world battle on snow, ice, gravel, mud, asphalt and more, with awesome footage delivering all the drama. First blood went to Toyota's Sainz, who benefited from Makinen crashing his Mitsubishi on Monte-Carlo's slippery stages - the smash captured by the in-car camera. However, Makinen soon got his title challenge back on track, and the pair battled throughout the season, right down to a dramatic finale - less than one mile from the end of the last stage of the year! McRae and Burns also showed great form - including a first WRC victory and famous home triumph for the Englishman - and veteran Juha Kankkunen's consistency made him a championship contender. This comprehensive review captures the action and drama - and numerous off-stage excursions - with in-car footage, interviews with the stars, informed commentary and more bringing you the full story of an incredible season.
