After the Spa-Sofia-Liege rally ended in 1964 due to safety concerns about racing on public roads the event moved to the Nürburgring. The resulting non-stop 84-hour regularity rally was perfect for the robust reliable MGB; meticulously prepared by BMC's Abingdon-based Competitions Department. Two MGBs entered and both crashed badly on the same corner in the opening laps, their drivers caught out by loose-chippings. However, both were nursed to the pits where the ingenuity of Den Green's team of mechanics got them back on track. The more exotic cars gradually failed leaving the metronomic MGs first and second at 72 hours. The Poole/Enever car broke a halfshaft in hour-79 but GRX 307D continued to victory.
