Well, I was a marshall at the Circuit of Ireland in the late 70s for 2 years. Unfortunately in the days before mobile phones so no photos! I did get a whistle though which I use to blow to warn spectators of oncoming cars, as if the 200 decibel noise escaped them LOL Use to attend for years and just loved the group B cars, like the Metro 6R4, Audi Quattro, and even Fords own RS200...

My mates Band Saxon  just releasing new Album in March.

Thought this official video release might float your boat.

Saxon big hair band from a good few years back, and video shows some Ford rallying.

This tune is a Deep Purple cover Speed King

I began in around 1970 in a Hillman Imp   ,then  moved to a Mk1 Mexico then Mk1 RS1600. Mostly competed in events in Southern England but also a number of national events around  the country. Had to give up in 75 when it started to get really expensive.
