The Datsun drivers: This was the last European Rally with Datsun for both crews. Mikkola became a legend with the Escort and Audi. Lusenius too was successful with the Alpine-Renault. Sadly, the replacement drivers that Nissan employed did not enjoy the same success as their predecessors.
An interesting entrant was John Tait with his Nissan Skyline GT (#34). The Netherlands was one of the few countries that received the Skyline apart from Australia and the Japanese home market.
