African Gloom

In a nutshell, the Ivory Coast Rally was a pretty rotten event. As an attempt at copying the Safari it has never, in all its 19-year history, even looked like making the grade, and the small improvement which it managed to achieve in recent editions was blotted out this year, when the already weak organisation wilted under the strain of trying unsuccessfully to meet FISA's impossible demands...

Rally Preview - The 1991 Season

The World Series for 1991 Much has happened in world rallying circles in the past year, but no-one can argue that the most significant issue of 1990 was not the overthrow of Lancia drivers for whom the World title had been a preserve since Peugeot left the fray after 1986. Lancia did win the World Rally Championship for Makes last year, but the person, the real, flesh-and-blood driver himself who...

Ove achiever

The spot on the F1 pit wall which Ove Andersson occupies today seems a far cry from his background as a top-line rally driver.

Through the Looking Glass

The international rally season traditionally opens in Monte Carlo. David Williams explains how, this year, it both did and didn't . . . There is a school of thought that Patrick Bernardini is on to a good thing. In years to come, the theory goes, people will remember only that he won the 1996 Monte Carlo Rally. His name will be on the list of winners for as long as anyone cares that there is such...

Rally review

Anyone who works for the RAC MSA knows better than to expect much thanks, so the occupants of Motor Sports House will have been less than surprised by the reaction to their proposals for new technical regulations for international rallying. The most favourable response was that the RAC had kept an "open mind," the more damning that its proposal "goes round in a big circle". If nothing else, it...

Rally Review -- Swedish Rally

Spawn of the North Sandstrorms are inevitable in the Sahara; the Cook Straits will never be without their winds; and snow is a meteorological certainty during a Swedish winter. Each of those statements seems as logical as calling a leopard spotted, and it is almost incomprehensible that any of the locations mentioned should be without its associated climatic condition. Nevertheless, it is quite...
