Unwarranted though it may be, it is a fact that one bad experience can put you off something for life even though you know that the experience was an isolated one. A single mediocre meal in a restaurant may, however undeservedly, put you off the establishment...

Tommi gun

Given a rare opportunity in a top works rally car on home soil, Tommy Mäkinen didn't waste it As the 1994 World Rally Championship heads towards its close, three drivers have emerged with a chance of securing the title: Didier Auriol and Juha Kankkunen in Toyotas and Subaru's Carlos Sainz. In Finland, at the end of August, where the Neste 1000 Lakes Rally was the eighth qualifier of the 10-round...

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. . . After an indifferent year during which his feet have sometimes been given greater credit for intelligence than his brain, a driver has walked away with a World Championship rally victory by the comparatively huge margin of well over two minutes, less than...

Bruno's rough cut

On the verge of his first outright World Rally Championship success, Bruno Thiry’s Escort came to a halt. Didier Auriol was handily placed to profit. The Ford team suffered the tantalising and bitterly disappointing loss of a maximum points score in the all-tarmac Tour of Corsica when, just as it seemed likely that Belgian crew Bruno Thiry and Stephane Prevot would romp home to a win, ahead of...

Rally review: McRae of sunshine

Despite setbacks during the early stages of the event, Colin McRae fought back to take a second consecutive victory on home soil. In so doing, the Scot becomes the UK's first outright world rally champion Hard on the heels of that great commotion which followed Spain's Catalunya Rally, after which the works Toyota Castrol Team was not only deprived of all its points for 1995 but disallowed from...

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...

Rally review

Seconds out. . . Rallying doesn't come much closer than this. Argentina witnessed an epic battle between the WRC's top two protagonists There have been many close tussles in the World Rally Championship, even on such a high penalty event as the Safari, which once recorded a dead heat and required the tie-breaker to be invoked to decide the winner. But there can be very few events indeed, World...

McRae of sunshine

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...

Rally Review -- Tour of Corsica

Sainz on Corse Almost since the need to drive fast began to be an essential part of rallying, those responsible for preparing cars have had two major objectives; speed and reliability. Most other claims on the attention of car builders, for example, handling, flexibility and the need to have components fitted in such a way that they can be replaced quickly at the roadside, evolve from one of...
