Rally Review

Sanyo Rally of New ZealandA crucial win The importance that New Zealand had in this year's World Rally Championship was underlined by a decision taken a week after this most southerly and one of the most far flung events in the series. With Markku Alén finishing in second place in his late-entered Lancia Rally 037, the Turin management promptly lost interest in seriously contesting the next round...

World Endurance Championship: Silverstone 1,000 Kms

— a cliff-hanger Maybe Jochen Mass made the most prophetic remark after winning at Vallelunga, when he commented that the cars would get better, and the drivers would get used to driving for economy. The opening round had almost been an embarrassment as the leading cars slowed, and then slowed some more to reach the finish line on their allocation of 510 litres, 15% less than last year's 600...

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.

Col De Turini

This piece of road still provides the focus of the world's most famous rally. But other Monte stages have come and gone, as John Davenport explains You are in Monte Carlo with time to kill. You've driven around as much of the Monaco GP circuit as you can. You've hung around Casino Square in the hope of seeing at least one of the top-paid Formula One heroes. (No chance, by the way. They all reward...

World Rally Championship: Acropolis Rally

The chosen one "Walk purposely not aimlessly" is the counsel of the natioal airline's magzine to those who wish to escape the tourist tag in Athens. "Avoid the sun", it goes on, "if shade is available: keep your stares for pretty girls, not monuments: and never ask for ice in your drinking water." Such precision of advice is typical of Greek character, though the rigid exactitude of behaviour...

Of clocks and cock-ups...

You can have the fastest, most reliable car on the rally, the most talented crew and the best driver, but if you can't keep track of time, you can easily snatch defeat from the jaws of victory. John Davenport remembers those occasions when time stood still for no-one. It was a warm, balmy October evening in San Remo. The participants in the 1974 San Remo Rally were stirring from their afternoon...
