Find out more about the RPM man and the characters he cohorted with in Keep the Revs Up! Revs standing for those roaring rally and racing engines that he so revered and for the reverend gentlemen he was reared amongst.
Billy Coleman Déjà Vu (DVD)
A legendary driver is reunited with a legendary car
£16.99p + p&p
Déjà Vu Motorsport, the rally reunion people, recreated memories of the Rothmans Rally Team (1985 – ’86) at their Killarney Déjà Vu 2017 event by bringing together the legendry Billy Coleman, his co-driver Ronan Morgan and a Porsche 911RS.
With two on-board cameras rolling they piggy-backed on their memories and RPM has combined Vantage Point’s footage, Ronan Morgan and John Mulholland’s words and its own archive, to produce this very personal DVD.
Smile as Billy and Ronan drive again over the Molls Gap, Healey Pass, and Cods Head stages in this iconic car and enjoy flashbacks to Billy’s Ford Escort, Lancia Stratos, Opel Manta, BMW M3 and Metro 6R4 glory days.
Tarmac 1988 (DVD)
£16.99p + p&p
Ireland was Sierra Cosworth country in 1988 when Mark Lovell celebrated his second successive Irish Tarmac Championship win having glided his Ford backed car to victories in Galway, Donegal, on the Isle of Man, and in Cork.
Jimmy McRae’s and Austin MacHale were the only other winners, however James Cullen’s consistency got him the runner-up spot in the series.
Tarmac 1988 fills a gap in RPM’s Tarmac Review Series which now extends from 1986 to 2012.
