Rally Review

The Rally of The Thousand Lakes Wherever you go in the world, be it to a Moroccan oasis, a reindeer herdsmen's camp in Lapland, a fisherman's cottage on the Isle of Mull, or a sheep farm outside Rotorua, the chances are that if you turn the conversation towards rallying, there will be someone who will speak knowledgably about it; perhaps not so much about deeply technical matters, but certainly...

THE SENIOR RACE Another Norton 147111 Island Lapped at SO THF, most arnazin.g performan,ce of the 1931 Tourist Trophy Races was undoubtedly J. H. Simpson's wonderful third lap in 28m.

Rally review - The Sweddish Rally

Several significant developments have taken place in Sweden in the past two decades. Among the more trivial (though some would say otherwise) are the nation's lump sugar finally becoming soluble and its toilet paper at last perforated, whilst evolution of a more weighty nature has included the shifting of the driving lane from the left to the right, and the country's premier rally from Summer to...

Rally review: Thousand Lakes Rally

Delta meets its match At last a manufacturer has been able to take to a rally car capable of matching, even bettering, the performance of the Lancia Delta HF Integrale. The Italian team has had things all its own way for some two years and, with no real opposition, has romped to the top of results lists with boring regularity. But in Finland's Thousand Lakes Rally at the end of August, all that...

1000 Lakes Rally

Finntasia What is the toughest rally in the World Championship? That question, which we've heard asked on numerous occasions but have never known to be satisfactorily answered, usually comes from someone who may profess deep knowledge of the sport but does not actually possess it. The absence of an acceptable answer is very simply explained; there isn't one, despite what self-styled experts may...

Close Fight

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. Send a bunch of duffers to Arms Park and the crowd will go away feeling cheated; take the Barbarians to any club ground, however modest, and it will respond with vigor and enthusiasm. So it is with rallying. The best rally in the world will...

Rally review: Swedish Rally

Relegation Last year there was talk that the Swedish Rally was a candidate for FISA's chopping-block; that it was in danger of being dropped from the World Championship. Happily, that did not happen, and the series kept its one event which can lay claim to being a snow rally. However, it was dropped from the makes section, a move which is generally considered to be akin to relegation. FISA's view...

Rally review: Lombard RAC Rally

Kankkunen's Kingdom Last month we took a gamble by suggesting that a Lancia domination of November's Lombard RAC Rally, very probable on recent form, might give rise to one of the contrived results for which the Italian team has become noted in the past year or so. The gamble ended in deadlock and we find ourselves having neither to eat our words, nor to crow about them. Whilst Massimo Biasion,...

Rally Review -- Acropolis Rally

Ride a Crooked Trail They used to call it the toughest rally in the world outside Africa. In a way, it still merits that description, for it still uses special stages which are rougher than those of any other round of the World Championship, and has the highest retirement rate of the series, largely due to heat, dust, rocks and a time schedule which still allows very little opportunity indeed for...
