Mastering the rally art, with Culcheth

If you believe that rally drivers are created rather than made then the thought of Rally Schools is probably a complete anathema. There isn’t a rally driver in today’s World Championship who owes his success to any form of schooling. The skills have been learnt the hard way, the years of experience fine-honing natural instincts of car control. That is the simplistic way of looking at the...

Around and About

Who is Johnny Cecotto, anyway? Imagine it's a sunny Silverstone Saturday and you've wandered along, as our intrigued reporter did, in the hope of seeing some motorsport on two wheels. The day promises much, as the 750 FIM contenders tackle Silverstone as it should be, sans Woodcote chicane. Perhaps, as one well-known motoring national newspaper writer confessed to us, you are one of the growing...

Rallying TR7

The view ahead, into what had now become a full-blooded 100-m.p.h. power slide, was through the unfamiliar screen, and over acres of dashboard space, belonging to the first factory TR7, which is designed to rally in Group 4. A pair of such Triumphs, crewed by Tony Pond/Dave Richard, and Brian Culcheth/ Johnstone Syer, are scheduled to make their debut on May 6th, contesting the International...

Matters of Moment

Farewell, MG Writing farewell to MG is far more heart-breaking than was Lee Strout White's moving "Farewell to Model-T", because whereas that famous Ford was merely departing to make room for the new Model-A, and later the celebrated Ford V8 and a host of subsequent successful Ford models, it looks as if the death-knell has sounded for the Abingdon-built MG sports cars. Whatever the financial...

Saloon Car Action,'70s style

Saloon Car Action, '70s style. PP Video. 60 min, £12.99. Now here's a first. Hands up anyone who knows of any other video which kicks off with footage of a Morris Marina Coupe belting along a special stage. Somehow, that perhaps captures the flavour of the 1970s. Idiosyncrasy was all the rage. Flared trousers. Bat wing shirt collars. Footwear that bore closer resemblance to stilts than shoes....

Rally review

Swedish Rally Scandinavian winters being what they are, long and cold, it's almost inconceivable that February's Swedish Rally should have taken place on anything but roads plentifully covered by ice and snow. Sweden becomes white for months every winter, and remembering that the Monte-Carlo Rally has snow only on some parts of its route, the Swedish Rally is the only event in the World...

Tap Rally

Of all the rally financiers in this world—and there are several who keep their chosen events alive by an annual subsidy exchange for publicity—the national airline of Portugal must come very close indeed to being the most generous. On second thoughts, the company contribution to the TAP Rally must top the poll, for in its six years as an International event its organisers have been given the...

A Spaniard in the works

Unpeturbed by his narrow defeat in last year’s WRC, Carlos Sainz got the new campaign off to a flying start "One minute we are drivers; the next we are mechanics; and then we are drivers again." So said one well-known works driver during this year's MonteCarlo Rally, when new FIA rules for World Championship qualifiers, particularly regarding servicing, came into effect for the first time. He...

Tony Pond

Leyland's new rally recruit talks about his prospects in the 1976 TR7 campaign Just under 30 years of age, and securely contracted to Leyland to contest next year's RAC Rally Championship, in the latest 16-valve TR7, Tony Pond looks towards 1976 with a confidence that few of us can muster today. He started rallying in 1968, coming "nowhere" in his own words on road events. Then, the following...

The TAP Rally

Rally review Fiat's sweeping success There was a time when Italian sporting people appeared on rallies in a variety of hotly-tuned Fiat 500s, the occasional Alfa Romeo or one or another of the Lancia range, the Fulvia being the most popular in recent years. Then came Fiat's 124 Spider, and suddenly it became the car for every well-appointed Italian amateur driver to possess. There was no Fiat...
