A Set-up?

We wonder what they would say in Belgrave Square if FISA suddenly announced that they were going to hand over organisation of the RAC Rally to the AA. It sounds ludicrous, but the dictators of Paris have declared their intention of doing something very similar indeed, though not concerning the RAC Rally. Many years ago Wylton Dickson, promoter of past marathons to Sidney, Mexico and Munich,...

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...

The Monaco Grand Prix

Gambler's luck  Monte Carlo, May 15th The planning of the 1983 Grand Prix season is not working out too well. It started off all right in Brazil, with everyone surprisingly fit and ready to race, then the scene moved to Long Beach where there was an all-pervading atmosphere of it being the last Formula One race in the Californian sea-port town. The European scene began entirely on the wrong foot...

Rob Walker Equipe Wins Again MONTE CARLO, May 18th. THE organising committee of the Automobile Club of Monaco deserve full marks for not pandering to the present-day ideas of the F.I.A. in turning Grand Prix races into " sprint-type ” events, for they kept the XVI Monaco G.P. to a traditional full-length G.P. of 100 laps of the tiny, narrow, 3.145-km. street circuit. On the other hand they...

Formula One: Monaco GP

The Rising Sun in Dreamworld If you need an example of an anachronism, it has to be the Monaco Grand Prix. Walking round the circuit the day before practice began, I could not help feeling that Monaco itself was living in a dream world, oblivious to the rest of the world. and to the fact that we have nearly reached the end of the nineteen-eighties and the year 2000 is in sight. The Casino Square...

Reflections in the Builder's Dust

For anyone interested in civil engineering a visit to Monaco must be fascinating for there is continuous building and development going on. Every year when you return and go to look up friends you find the hotel they normally stay in has gone, replaced either by a new block of apartments, a new hotel, or simply a huge hole in the ground. As the Principality is hemmed in by the mountains behind,...

Formula One scene: Monte Carlo

The eleven year plan I sometimes wonder if I am totally out of step with the rest of the world when I read things like the Renault Press handout which says that the Monaco Grand Prix is the world's most prestigious race. I have been watching Grand Prix races round the streets of Monte Carlo for longer than I care to remember, and I can't say I have ever taken them very seriously. The idea of...

CONTINENTAL NEWS. ANOTHER " ROUND-THE-TOWN " RACE THE FIRST GRAND PRIX OF NIMES WHEN the Automobile Club of Monaco announced their proposal, four years ago, of running a motor race in the town itself, there were many who were sceptical of its practicability. When the venture was crowned with amazing success, they merely said that Monte Carlo was different to other places, and that the same sort...

The 29th Monaco Grand Prix

Stewart all the way Monte Carlo, May 23rd. For some strange and seemingly masochistic reason everyone wants to compete in the Monaco Grand Prix and, equally, everyone would like to inscribe their name on the long list of winners. It is probably due to the relative unavailability of the circuit, for it is only in use by racing cars once a year and there is never any opportunity to do any private...

THE MONTE CARLO WEEK ROUNDING OFF THE RALLY ACOMPETITION, motoring or otherwise, which is not declared by someone to be unfair, is an almost unknown thing. The International Sporting Club, the Automobile Club of Monaco, and M. Anthony Noghes, the President of the A.C.M. on whom the heaviest part of the work of organisation falls, therefore deserve every congratulation on the success of the Monte...
