Champion in all but name

Markku Alen was the Ronnie Peterson of rallying - a true genius who was never rewarded with the championship. That's a travesty, says John Davenport There are rally drivers who thrill you when they are driving, and there are rally drivers who thrill you out of the car. Then there is Markku Alen who does both. The most charismatic personality to bless rallying with his presence, he radiated...

King 'B'

Henri Toivonen and the Group B rally car were destined to make and then destroy each other’s life. John Davenport reports As the song says about love and marriage, they could have been made for one another.

The XXXIII Mille Miglia

A Personal Triumph for Castellotti In spite of popular alarums and excursions the Mille Miglia took place on April 28/29th in exactly the same form as past years, and the only differences in the route were two new by-pass roads: at Pineto, on the Adriatic coast, and San Quirico, shortly before Siena.
