C3372A Stig Blomqvist Rally Legend – Limited Edition
Stig Blomqvist – Rally Legend
Swedish rally legend, Stig Blomqvist, has inspired several generations of race drivers. Famed for his smooth driving style, his glittering career lasted over three decades.
One of the most popular drivers to grace the WRC stage, 1984 World Rally Champion Stig Blomqvist achieved an incredible 11 wins and 33 podiums. He won his home event, the Swedish Rally, seven times. His first WRC rally came at home in Sweden in 1973 – and he returned there for the last time in 2006.
Outside the WRC, he won the British Rally Championship in 1983 and the Swedish Rally Championship several times. At the Race of Champions, Blomqvist took the title “Champion of Champions” in 1989 and 1990.
Scalextric celebrate the accomplished career of Stig Blomqvist; faithfully modelling three of his memorable drives in three very different machines. In 1985, Stig claimed a respectable 4th place in the Monte Carlo rally, with co-driver Cederberg, in the No.1 Audi Sport Quattro.
In November of the same year, as reigning World Champion, Stig took part in a celebrity TV competition called the “Austin Rover Rally Sprint”, held at the famous Donington Park race circuit, driving the MG Metro 6R4.
Stig moved from the Audi works team to the Ford works team for the 1986 FIA World Rally Championship. The No. 2 Ford RS200, driven by Stig and co-driven by Bruno Berglund, retired from the gruelling 33rd Acropolis Rally after an accident, but still finished 11th overall in the 1986 Championship.
