Much has been said about the great success of Per Eklund and Saab, but of course never enough.
By the way, did you all know Per Eklund was born in 1946 and set his record in the pikes peak race in 2000. Did hear a funny interview with him at the Swedish Rally a few years ago, the reporter asked if he was getting to old to be competitive, and how he could still drive so fast in his 60`s? Per answer-you only need to accelerate and brake a little bit earlier- then it’s like before!
Below, see another great video from the Per Eklund cockpit (Pikes Peak 2002):

He is the greatest of all great, I Think we never get such a big star again
