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."

Going up Fifteen pence or eighteen pence?—that was the problem that faced the publishers of Motor Sport. As you know, fifteen pence was the figure agreed for Motor Sport, and for three months we have published at this price. Many readers have complained that on the new paper the sharp reproduction of the excellent photographs has been lost, and why not improve quality rather than cut price? So,...

Rally Review - Morocco Rally Revived

Back in the early Seventies, when the East African Safari did not stick to all-weather roads, when the Acropolis was an absolute road race and when the first leg of the RAC Rally ran for three days and two nights without a major rest stop, there was an event in the International Rally Championship called the Morocco Rally.

Matters of moment

PEUGEOT'S SAFARI Thanks to the publicity boys, the Monte Carlo Rally is still the biggest "plum" a rally-conscious manufacturer can win. All praise to B.M.C. for producing little cars that put down so much power through their front wheels that they were invincible in this event.
