First is not enough

Francois Delecour needed to win. What he didn't need was for Juha Kankkunen to fare so well... There are two ways of looking at the situation which arises when a championship is settled before it reaches its final round. The first involves disappointment that the series has not lasted its full term, and that the last qualifier will not be as fiercely contested as it might. Second, it could be...

A Touch of the Midnight sun

In the past, the Swedish Rally to the Midnight Sun has often clashed with the dates of the Coupe des Alpes so that, although both have been qualifying rounds in the European Rally Championship, it has been virtually impossible to compete in both. This year, there was just over a week between them, which meant that, apart from consideration of whether this made reconnaissance of both routes...

Rally Review

Acropolis Events of the present are rarely without their counterparts from the past, and quite often one can recall from years gone by an incident almost identical with one of very recent origin. One might even go further and say that things which are sometimes claimed to be unprecedented can quite often be shown not to be so. This is certainly true of rallying and we have often wondered at the...

Alfa Romeo's 1990 World motorsport plans

Confident enough to emphasise its return to one of the major leagues of motor racing, Alfa Romeo recently held a press conference in Milan to announce its activities. Whilst the Indycar project was at the heart of the matter, the occasion was also used to publicise its other activities, some of which were otherwise unbeknown to British enthusiasts. In the British Formula 3 championship, for...

Student of the Sport

'Bookish', bespectacled Andrea de Adamich was studying law when he took up motor racing. A budding career ended abruptly at Silverstone 40 years ago, but today the pupil has turned teacher Late at night on July 14 1973, Andrea de Adamich lay in a hospital bed in Milan, his legs both broken.

World Championship for Makes and World Championship for Sports Cars The story so far . . .

The story so far . . . When the Group 5 circus of so-called "Special Production Cars" comes to Brands Hatch on the 24th and 25th of September for the seventh round of the World Championship for Makes, the once fiercely contested title will have already been long decided in Porsche's favour. When this summary of the championship to date was written, the Canadian round at Mosport had still to take...

World Rally Championship: Safari Rally

In developed Europe, much of a team's strategic resources may be buried deep in concrete jungles, never actually seen, whilst even their en route service points are very often in secure garages from which prying eyes are kept well away by doors which are slammed shut after the cars enter. But in the wide expanse of Africa, everything is clear for all to see; the fleets of mobile workshops, chase...

Rally Review -- Argentinian Rally

Five and Out No matter how many manufacturers' teams contest the World Rally Championship, history records that, when the half-year stage is reached, the number actually in contention for the lead has been whittled down to two. This year is no exception, and although no less than ten makes have scored points so far, two are so far ahead that neither can be overtaken by any of the others. Toyota...

A Catalogue of Disasters

A Catalogue of Disasters IT CAME as no surprise that this year's Monte Carlo Rally was completely snow free and that the dry stages contained only occasional ice patches. After all, winter had been mild all over Europe and the ski resorts were facing financial disaster. Nevertheless, the teams and tyre companies had to lay in stocks of all their tyre types, just in case a last minute snowfall...

Miki taker

Toyota was expected to win, Subaru should have won, but the Acropolis tore the heart out of the entry and victory went to Ford, thanks largely to a superbly judged drive from Miki Biasion Had the 1993 Acropolis Rally taken place under the regulations prevailing 20 or so years ago, the SCDA would have been delighted. It was hotter this year than it has been for 10 years at least, a reminder of the...
