Tyred And Weary

Budgets running into several millions of pounds, the most modern technology available and the most comprehensive development and support programmes that can be amassed are still not enough to fend off one of the oldest pitfalls in the rally game — a puncture! During the Argentina Rally at the end of July the main battle, well ahead of all the others, was between the leading drivers of Lancia and...

'Lightning' strikes twice

When expatriate Frenchman Jean-Claude Bertrand devised and ran the Ivory Coast's first Bandama Rally, his idea was that it should become France's answer to the Safari Rally.

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.
