The rise of Fall

From Yorkshire and a Mini to a GM competitions boss. Tony Fall tells John Davenport how he did it Tony Fall was a rally phenomenon in the 1960s. Just as the works teams were starting to go all Scandinavian, along came this cheerful young lad from Yorkshire to give them a run for their money. His first event outside Britain was the Alpine Rally of 1965: he finished eighth in a Mini Cooper S and...

Rally review: Acropolis Rally

Lancia eases the strain If someone had asked us whether the Acropolis Rally had ever been won by a crew in a Lancia Fulvia or a Stratos, and demanded an immediate, off-the-cuff answer, we would probably have answered that both these eminently successful cars of the past had the Greek event included in their list of victories.

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.
