Tyred And Weary

Budgets running into several millions of pounds, the most modern technology available and the most comprehensive development and support programmes that can be amassed are still not enough to fend off one of the oldest pitfalls in the rally game — a puncture! During the Argentina Rally at the end of July the main battle, well ahead of all the others, was between the leading drivers of Lancia and...

Monte Carlo Rally

Winning margins of the order of 13 minutes are normally associated only with endurance rallies such as the Safari, or, in Europe, only with something as rough and demanding as the Acropolis.

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...

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. Journeying by road to the south of France in winter, via the Alps, was once a risky undertaking indeed.
