Rally review: Argentina Rally

Lancia fully in control So many of the World Rally Championship's formerly active teams have called a halt to their rallying in the past eighteen months, some as a result of unacceptable changes of FISA's rules and subsequent differing interpretations, some simply due to a marked lack of success, that Lancia's unopposed gallop to the top of the Championship table this year has hardly been...

Rally review - Total Rally

As a general rule, the world's best-known rallies are those which form part of the World Rally Championship for Makes, there being still no equivalent series for drivers, to the shame of the CSI, and no personality at the end of the year who can be garlanded, interviewed, shaken by the hand or invited to be photographed with his arm around a beauty queen.

Total Rally Review

Chevrolet Firenza 5-litre V8s shine but Fall wins for Datsun Of all the world's international rallies there are but few outside the World Rally Championship which can really claim to be given a great deal of attention other than in their own countries. the Arctic Rally is an obvious one (it has already been suggested by many as an ideal qualifier for the World Championship) and the British home...

The Total Rally

Rally ReviewClark wins in South Africa Some Europeans seem to have fixed but not entirely accurate conceptions of African rallies; they are either flat-out blinds over open bush or winding escarpments, or long, interminable endurance runs through rock-strewn deserts. This isn't the case at all, for down in South Africa they have rallies which are very similar in style to British special stage...
