"Keith Adams recalls the excellent Austin Rover Rallysprint 1983, which pitted the cream of Grand Prix drivers against the top rally drivers of the day to see who came out on top.
The cars used were a combination of Rover SD1s on gravel, MG Metros in an autotest and MG Maestros on the track. With Nigel Mansell, John Watson and Tony Pond competing, it’s compelling viewing."

SD1s on gravel and Maestros on the track seems a rather odd choice IMHO.
The opposite would be more reasonable, which is also backed up from the success of the SD1 as a track and not as a rally car.
