Ove achiever

The spot on the F1 pit wall which Ove Andersson occupies today seems a far cry from his background as a top-line rally driver. But, as John Davenport explains, these early experiences were crucial in shaping Toyota's motorsport general It cannot have escaped your notice that several successful rally men have migrated to the world of Formula One in recent years. Ferrari has two, its president and...

All in a year's work

In which the Deputy Editor reviews his 1979 motoring activities  It doesn't feel as if a year has passed since I last wrote this annual review, and looking back through my diary for this flash of time I wonder how I have managed to fit in the long list of cars driven, the countries and events visited, the production of 12 issues of this magazine and a semblance of relatively normal life as well....

Rally review

Toughest of them all The Liège If you were to ask Peter Hughes and Mike Armstrong which was most difficult, the East African Safari or the Liège-Sofia-Liège, the answer might be a straightforward vote for the Liège or a rather sheepish grin. The reason is that whereas Mike and Peter finished third and first in works Cortina GTs on the Safari neither they nor any of the other works Fords -finished...

Rally review: Monte Carlo Rally

Outright win for B.M.C.'s Mini-Cooper S under very tough conditions Every year more is written about the Monte Carlo Rally than any other international rally, and as each year passes it becomes more difficult to say something fresh about it. To start with, through the dual mediums of advertising and public relations, nearly everybody will know by now who won the event and that for the second year...

Rally Review

Swedish Rally Two significant facts emerged from this year's International Swedish Rally. Firstly Stig Blomqvist must be the most difficult man to beat in rallying today; secondly if local rules are to take precedence over international practice competitors, foreign ones in particular, should be given adequate notice. Stig Blomqvist has been rallying for a number of years but it wasn't until...

Rally review - Raid Polski

The Polish Rally is one of the longer established Internationals and has been held twenty-four times since its instigation in 1921. The past four years at least have seen the German team of Mercedes carrying off top honours, with Schock and Moll winning in 1960, Böhringer and Aaltonen in 1961, Böhringer again in 1962, and Glemser and Braungart in 1963. However, a Polish gentleman by the name of...

Sun, snow... and Saabs

The Swedish Rally started as a summer event held in 24-hour daylight. John Davenport looks at how it evolved into the classic snow rally Think of the Swedish Rally and the first images that come to mind are probably not mid-summer skies, endless days and dusty gravel roads. But when it was created in 1950 by the KAK — King's Automobile Club — it was an event far removed from the current snow...

Rally review

The R.A.C. Rally of Great Britain As it had been arranged that I should cover this year's R.A.C. Rally by occupying the hot seat in a works Saab driven by the Finnish Rally Champion, Simo Lampinen, Rally Review for this month was to have been an account of the rally seen from that point of view. I take little pleasure in reporting that we only managed to complete about one-fifth of the route...
