Rally review - Lombard RAC

To casual watchers, November's Lombard RAC Rally probably seemed little changed from the previous year. Apart from a shift of headquarters from Nottingham to Harrogate, and some differences in the actual special stages used, the style was just the same. Indeed, it was as it has been for some years; stately homes and private estates on the Sunday, followed by forest roads on the weekdays. But...

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...

Audits & Plaudits

In the final part of his Metro 6R4 story, John Davenport explains how he had to fight to keep the project's momentum going, how inter-company rivalries and red tape conspired against it, and how the team's efforts were rewarded by a euphoric World Championship debut Just as George Orwell gloomily predicted, 1984 started badly with Austin Rover Group endlessly embroiled in the pointless spat...

World Rally Championship: Portuguese Rally

Rally review: Cyprus Rally

Rough stuff Whilst a World Championship qualifier was struggling to generate interest in the Ivory Coast, an European Championship round in the Eastern Mediterranean was enjoying a healthy start-list and first-class competition between both professionals and amateurs.

Wales of anguish

The cancellation of this year's Rally of Wales makes John Davenport think back to another 'Welsh' — the Clubman's International that went a stage too far... History has a habit of repeating itself. Earlier this year rally enthusiasts got a helping of déjà vu when they read the headline 'Rally of Wales Cancelled by Entry Shortfall'. Only 10 years before, the Welsh International Rally had foundered...
