David Williams witnessed the first World Championship rally in Asia and predicts a runaway success The disaster stories are always the best. There ought to be one about Asia. In the World Rally Championship's somewhat chequered 23-year history, there have been some remarkably ill-judged attempts to break new ground, ranging from the long-running farce known as the Ivory Coast Rally, to the ill-...

Growing Pains

Grand Prix racing's new-style feeder formula is well populated, but Simon Arron witnessed a baptism that wasn't wholly smooth Formula 3000 makes its big step into the future, into a world devoid of extravagant technology but which promises simultaneously to reduce costs, increase public awareness and to serve as a broader shop window of talent for Formula One scouts. D-day is May 12, at the...

Subaru impressive

On his first visit to Indonesia, Colin McRae adapted to the unusual humidity and took an early lead in the Asia-Pacific Rally Championship Whenever a group of organisers get together to link their different international events into a championship series, it's not long before the FIA steps in, claims it as its own and applies its own rules. It happened in Africa and it has now happened in the Far...

Rising son

Several years ago, the writer was following the Rally of New Zealand with some photographers and seeking a vantage point that would permit the taking of useable photographs without threatening life and limb. A spectator studied us for some time as we clambered up banks and through ditches before remarking, "You'll be alright there for the first few, but you'll have to look out when the Japanese...

Carlos and Carless

CCRIOS and While one member of the Subaru was winning his Erst WM event since late 1992k the other found himself excluded... Very few people at the 1994 Acropolis Rally could have remembered the SCDA. It was an organisation beyond the memories of most of rallying's present followers, born of the time when the event was not only scorchingly hot, throatburningly dry and eye-stingingly dusty, as it...

Making amends

Colin McRae had endured a miserable 1994 prior to New Zealand. There had even been talk that his place at Subaru was in jeopardy. But then. . .

One of the reasons for New Zealand's great enchantment and fascination is its remoteness. No one ever goes there on the way to somewhere else because there's pretty well nowhere else to go. It has thus escaped most of the ravages of popular tourism. It is by no means a backward country - its cities, resources and amenities are as modern as any you will find in the world but the visitor cannot...

Bitter sweet

Juha Kankkunen's victory delighted Toyota, which became the first Japanese manufacturer to take the World Championship, but celebrations were overshadowed by the death of popular Kiwi Rodger Freeth Sadness and delight came together during September's Rally Australia, backed primarily by Telecom Australia.

Kiwi polish

Colin McRae takes a third straight win in New Zealand, and keeps his slim WRC hopes alive. Sponsorship of events, teams and drivers by tobacco companies, notably to promote particular cigarette brands, has been as common for many years in rallying as it has in other sports. The reason is straightforward. Tobacco advertising is severely restricted in many countries, banned altogether in some, and...

McRae of sunshine

As threat of a controversial stages finish evaporated, Britain's rising star completed a deserved victory - the first such home success since 1976 Eighteen years: a long time for a premier British sporting event to be without a British winner. But that is as long as it has taken for a Briton to repeat the feat of Roger Clark, The 1994 Network Q RAC Rally was won in fine style by Scotsmen Colin...
