The Winning Streak
28 March 2005 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

This is a classic 6-part series made by Yorkshire Television in the early 1980's about a young garage owner David Savage (played by Benedick Blythe) who has his eyes on becoming a top rally driver. The series will be of particular interest to motor-sport enthusiasts as it features an early incarnation of the METRO 6R4 rally car which was being developed at that time. This is a real nostalgia-fest for all you petrol-heads out there and features some excellent 'period' footage from this golden era of rallying.

The cast includes a very young Sean Wilson (who went on to play Martin Platt in Coronation Street); Graham Fellows (who was the pop singer Jilted John); Laura Davenport; Leslie Sands; Shaun Scott and Dinah Sheridan. There are some great location shots in and around North and West Yorkshire.

I recorded all six episodes at the time when this was first screened and have now transferred them onto DVD.
