This one is going to be a fan based reply-if you are a big fan of DMG you will of course say DMG-no prizes for guessing who I voted for. Thing is nowadays rallying is so different and the events are sprint type, loop stages rather than endurance. Billy Coleman in his day was the tops, Austin can still mix it .

Of course my all time top driver Bertie is up there in rally heaven, having got a full works drive with a full programme and is winning all the WRC events, beating Loeb all the way, mounting big time combacks after a terrible tyre choice and being well down. For those who never saw Bertie you missed something special and I am sure his ghost is still on the stages, chashing Austin all the way home and just stealing a win by one second-it is heaven after all. Ah-those were the days.:)

WOULD IT BE FAIR TO SAY AUSTIN LOST SOME OF HIS SPEED FOR A WHILE AFTER BERTIES DEATH LOSING A FRIEND AND RIVAL IN SUCH A TRAGIC WAY? NOW SEEMS MORE RELAXED AND SPEED IS BACK,THERES MORE WINS LEFT IN HIM YET. HOPE SO ANYWAY

And you didn't find Donnelly entertaining in the G3? He drove that car everybit as good as Fisher drove an M3 or Meagher drove an Escort. Donnelly would have given Bertie or Frank (God rest them) a real run for their money anytime IMO
