Heat and Dust

As a general rule, smooth and relatively short rallies produce low penalty differences, whilst those of rougher, longer ones are usually much higher. Seconds, certainly no more than minutes, normally separate the first ten on the Tour of Corsica, for instance, whilst on the Safari Rally this year the gap between the first and tenth (last) finishers was not far short of a complete day! The...

Miki taker

Toyota was expected to win, Subaru should have won, but the Acropolis tore the heart out of the entry and victory went to Ford, thanks largely to a superbly judged drive from Miki Biasion Had the 1993 Acropolis Rally taken place under the regulations prevailing 20 or so years ago, the SCDA would have been delighted. It was hotter this year than it has been for 10 years at least, a reminder of the...

Cars in books

I wonder whether the Fiat Register is aware of an interesting reference to "a small Fiat motor car" in "The Light of Common Day," by Diana Cooper (Rupert Bart-Davis, 1959)? It was seen in a Venetian shop-window in 1926 and bought by the authoress and her husband and used by them to drive to Garda and "along the untrafficked road...", to Riva. If bought new, as I have reason to think it probably...

XII Acropolis Rally (May 21st-24th)

In the past, Greece has provided the setting for many classic battles, but as tar as the motor sporting enthusiast is concerned there has been little to capture his interest. Over in Greece to report on the Acropolis Rally for the first time, I was surprised to find how keenly the Greeks support their rather small number of events, which range from a hill-climb at Mount Parnis, outside Athens, to...

Auriol: Greece Lightning

Not so long ago, Frenchman Didier Auriol was known as the man whom Lady Luck has passed by. Time after time, disaster struck just when it seemed that he would get a good result. His performances were excellent, but something always seemed to go wrong and he notched up retirement after retirement. However, 1992 has seen an about turn for Auriol and his co-driver Bernard Occelli. After winning both...
