Roger Albert Clark's second win, and the first win by a British driver on a WRC event. (There was no WRC in 1972 - his first win.)

Stiq Blomqvist second (the original Stiq) Bjorn Waldegaard third and the Stratos with Munari in 4th.

Just listen to those Webers on a 2-litre Terry Hoyle BDA.

Ahhhh, watching that makes me want more power!!!  The RWD's bog down a little too much in the game.  We need the Mk2 and the M3 singing sideways!!! :D
We could use some 13" wheels instead of the games 15". The cars would get more "oomph".

I feel a bit confused about how the older cars in the game are simulated. As a modern classic car with better tires, brakes, suspension etc or as a classic car with the proper era-equipment? Or something in between.

In fairness Skiddy, some older rally's (depending on era) were run off a normal ordinance survey map rather than detailed pacenotes, which were sometimes outlawed in the regs.  Many a controversy was had over pieces of defaced crumpled paper being ejected from a car before time controls!! :)

What was the point of a co-driver then?

Fantastic era and all without pace notes!
Have you not actually watched that video? Each car has 2 people in it, driver sitting higher than the passenger, passenger looking at his knees.
The co-driver made sure the driver followed the correct route and warn of significant hazards marked on the road book, They didn't have a map of every corner of the stage but the road book with tulip diagrams as provided by the officials showing junctions and key hazards.

What he said, Cars were sometimes searched at Time Controls for illegal pace notes.
