Rally Review

Total Rally It is our experience that people who have no first-hand knowledge of the continent of Africa frequently labour under grave misconceptions concerning its geography. A popular notion is that the northern part is all sand, deserts, pyramids and Foreign Legion forts, and the south a mass of hot, steaming jungle and dusty plains. Equally popular is the conception that rallies in North...

Rally review - Lombard RAC

To casual watchers, November's Lombard RAC Rally probably seemed little changed from the previous year. Apart from a shift of headquarters from Nottingham to Harrogate, and some differences in the actual special stages used, the style was just the same. Indeed, it was as it has been for some years; stately homes and private estates on the Sunday, followed by forest roads on the weekdays. But...

ivory coast rally

Ivory Coast CONVERSATION after the Sanremo Rally seemed to centre not on the World Championship title duel between Stig Blomqvist and Markku Alen, but on the remarkable way in which An Vatanen and Terry Harryman had driven one of Peugeot's four-wheel-drive cars to its second major victory, trouncing both the Audis and the Lancias. The new car had twice made an appearance, and had twice got among...

Cataluña Rally When Toyota Team Europe went to Spain for the Cataluña Rally the prime object was to get Carlos Sainz and Luis Moya on the winners rostrum. The secondary object was to keep rivals Juha Kankkunen and Juha Piironen out of the top points-scoring positions. The double purpose had two reasons. In the first place, Sainz needed points to stay ahead of Kankkunen and to keep his World...

Rally review: RAC International Rally of Great Britain

Many more people watched the 1971 RAC Rally of Great Britain than the total number of spectators at every single race meeting held in Britain throughout the year. That is one authoritative estimate of the enormous interest taken in November's RAC Rally. Another estimate gave the figure as over three million, and that isn't at all unrealistic when you consider that there were more than seventy...

Carlos and Carless

CCRIOS and While one member of the Subaru was winning his Erst WM event since late 1992k the other found himself excluded... Very few people at the 1994 Acropolis Rally could have remembered the SCDA. It was an organisation beyond the memories of most of rallying's present followers, born of the time when the event was not only scorchingly hot, throatburningly dry and eye-stingingly dusty, as it...

When Mikko Helander, then manager of Finland's Teboil Team which existed to help promising private drivers, told me after an Arctic Rally many years ago that a little known driver called Ari Vatanen would one day become world champion, I was sceptical. I had been approached by self-considered talent scouts many times before and I was not easily convinced. A few years later, after Vatanen had...

Rally review

Ivory Coast Back in the 'seventies, after a string of sometimes vociferous complaints by competitors, the organisers of the Ivory Coast Rally announced an improvement. They decided to run many of the competitive sections by night instead of in the daytime in order to minimise the chances of confrontation with huge trucks on narrow roads in the forests. This year they announced another improvement...

Making amends

Colin McRae had endured a miserable 1994 prior to New Zealand. There had even been talk that his place at Subaru was in jeopardy. But then. . . After an indifferent year during which his feet have sometimes been given greater credit for intelligence than his brain, a driver has walked away with a World Championship rally victory by the comparatively huge margin of well over two minutes, less than...
