Pic of the Week: Waldegard and the 911

We know we've been a bit rally-heavy with POTW of late, but when we spotted this pic of Bjorn Waldegard getting gloriously sideways in the 1978 Safari rally it was a bit of a no-brainer.

Oh, and our other excuse for using it? Young Bjorn happens to be grabbing a dab of oppo in a Porsche 911. Which (as if we needed to remind you) we've been mildly obsessed with this week in anticipation of editor Trent's first drive of the all-new 911 (though if you're reading this on Saturday we should perhaps say in celebration of said first drive).

And even if you're not a Porsche fan, you'll probably still enjoy Waldegard's flamboyant cornering style.

    Was watching some YouTube videos of old Safari Rallies and most crews didn't seem to wear helmets, the nearest was a pair of Kenyan Sikhs who had turbans to keep them safe.
