Neither Cut Nor Dried

The odds in favour of a home win for Lancia in the Sanremo Rally were high. No less than seven four-wheel-drive Deltas were among the first eleven starters in the last-but-one World Championship qualifier of the year — two entered by the factory, two by the Jolly Club, two by the Grifone team and one by French Lancia importer André Chardonnet. It was no surprise that six of them finished in the...

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.

Acropolis Rally

No sensible person would argue with or complain about measures to lessen the chances of accidents such as that which caused the deaths of of two competitors during the Tour of Corsica.

Ivory Coast Rally

TWO months ago we spoke of the drift towards very lean entry lists for World Championship rallies, and how the Rally of the Thousand Lakes was an exception to this — the Lombard RAC Rally is another outstanding exception. Since then there has been an event at the opposite extreme, illustrating that a rally can only hold interest proportional to the calibre of those who take part in it. Even the...

King 'B'

Henri Toivonen and the Group B rally car were destined to make and then destroy each other’s life. John Davenport reports As the song says about love and marriage, they could have been made for one another. Henri Toivonen and the Group B rally cars of the mid-1980s seemed to share the same destiny and, together, produced some of the most fiery displays of driving ever seen on the world rally...

Regs are there to be broken

For some, the Monte retro rally was a test of navigation; for others, a chance to reawaken the fire of the old days. By Johnny Tipler There were three sorts of competitors on the 2008 Monte Carlo Historic Rally: the serious ones bent on victory by hitting the regularity targets, those giving their classic an outing on a high-profile event, and a small contingent out for high-speed thrills....

Monte Carlo Rally

A routine expedition A man's achievements have grown, and his machines become more advanced, many of what were once difficult, strenuous challenges are now considered no more than routine.
