Rally Review - Corsica

Tragedy repeated in Corsica For the second year in succession tragedy has struck the Lancia team whilst competing in the Tour of Corsica. Last year Italian driver Attilio Bettega was killed when his Lancia Rally ditched and hit a tree.

Portugal Rally

Master tactician Walter Röhrl went out of his way to ensure that Audi team-mate Hannu Mikkola won in Portugal after he lost any chance of victory himself (above). After a disappointing drive on Monte Carlo, Mikkola was much back on form, richly deserving his third ever Portugal win, his second in a row (above, right). The thorn in Audi's side was Markku Alen who also made up for a disappointing...

Team Managers - Cesare Fiorio

No driver has truly conquered Formula One, sports cars and rallying, but one extraordinary manager made it look easy. John Davenport talks to Cesare Fiorio. When a rally driver does well racing, like Walter Rohrl in the DTM, or a racing driver does well at rallying, like Jim Clark on the RAC Rally, it is a source of wonder to all. A much more rare thing is to find a team manager who is fully...

The Peugeot 205 Turbo 16, and the Lancia Delta S4 announced a few days before Christmas, have trumped all rivals adhering...

A corner of Corsica that is forever Finnish

It’s 25 years since rallying star Henri Toivonen and co-driver Sergio Cresto perished at an innocuous-looking turn on the Mediterranean isle. Today, fans and competitors still stop to pay their respects By Anthony Peacock The cheerful yellow townhouses that pack the centre of Corte – or Corti as it’s known in local dialect, often the only language visible given the propensity of patriotic...

Rally review: Tour of Corsica

Four years have passed since Jean Ragnotti won the Monte-Carlo Rally in a Renault 5 Turbo, generating all manner of speculation on whether there would be a return of the small car era. Were the days of the sixties about to be repeated, with a French car taking the place of the eminently successful Abingdon Mini? They were not, of course; four-wheeldrive soon took over, coupled with higher and...

Rally review: Sanyo Rally of New Zealand

Lucky for some There is no such thing as a racing certainty; a fact of which Audi is becoming acutely aware. Pre-season favourites to take the World Rally Championships for Makes and Drivers if for no other reason than that they had the only team prepared to contest all 12 events, Audi Sport is now the underdog. Despite having competed on all seven championship events to date, Audi is being...
