Renault 8 Gordini, Rally Portugal.

In 1967, somewhere in the beautiful but tough roads of Sintra, history was made for the not so resourceful portuguese pilots: Jean-Pierre Nicolas saw the gearbox of his Gordini snap, and José Carpinteiro was able to lead his car (also an 8 Gordini) to victory.

It was the first portuguese victory for the TAP Rally.
