The right track?

The right track? HENRI TOIVONEN CHARMING, FUN, AND SOARING star of the rally world. Youngest-ever winner of the RAC, unafraid of the brutal Delta S4, he was a future world champion until Lancia's outlandish Gp B pacesetter claimed his life, and his co-driver's, in 1986.

Part of a rich fabric

On the morning that this issue of Motor Sport closed for press. there was still hope that Team Lotus could be extant in 1995, albeit as part of a combined force. We're sure that there are many, like us, who have no wish to see the name disappear from Formula One, although equally we would prefer to see the marque return stronger and fitter in 1996 than to see it struggling along just for the sake...
