Rally review - Lombard RAC

To casual watchers, November's Lombard RAC Rally probably seemed little changed from the previous year. Apart from a shift of headquarters from Nottingham to Harrogate, and some differences in the actual special stages used, the style was just the same.

Audits & Plaudits

In the final part of his Metro 6R4 story, John Davenport explains how he had to fight to keep the project's momentum going, how inter-company rivalries and red tape conspired against it, and how the team's efforts were rewarded by a euphoric World Championship debut Just as George Orwell gloomily predicted, 1984 started badly with Austin Rover Group endlessly embroiled in the pointless spat...

Whether it be at Twickenham, Murrayfield or a levelled coal tip on the slopes of the upper Neath Valley, a rugby match is only as good as its players make it.
