African Gloom

In a nutshell, the Ivory Coast Rally was a pretty rotten event. As an attempt at copying the Safari it has never, in all its 19-year history, even looked like making the grade, and the small improvement which it managed to achieve in recent editions was blotted out this year, when the already weak organisation wilted under the strain of trying unsuccessfully to meet FISA's impossible demands...

Heat and Dust

As a general rule, smooth and relatively short rallies produce low penalty differences, whilst those of rougher, longer ones are usually much higher. Seconds, certainly no more than minutes, normally separate the first ten on the Tour of Corsica, for instance, whilst on the Safari Rally this year the gap between the first and tenth (last) finishers was not far short of a complete day! The...

Through the Looking Glass

The international rally season traditionally opens in Monte Carlo. David Williams explains how, this year, it both did and didn't . . . There is a school of thought that Patrick Bernardini is on to a good thing. In years to come, the theory goes, people will remember only that he won the 1996 Monte Carlo Rally. His name will be on the list of winners for as long as anyone cares that there is such...

Rally review: Argentina Rally

Lancia fully in control So many of the World Rally Championship's formerly active teams have called a halt to their rallying in the past eighteen months, some as a result of unacceptable changes of FISA's rules and subsequent differing interpretations, some simply due to a marked lack of success, that Lancia's unopposed gallop to the top of the Championship table this year has hardly been...

Prospects for 1990 BY THE time this issue of MOTOR SPORT appears, the Monte Carlo Rally, first round of the 1990 World Rally Championship, will be over, and an indication given as to which crews and cars are likely to be the best performers during the year. Already from 1989 we have Lancia, Toyota, Mitsubishi and Mazda, whilst coming soon in 1990 will be a biggerengined Mazda, a 4WD Ford Sierra...

Two Routes, Same Destination

The mechanical soft-touch isn't always best, says David Williams; sometimes brutality has the edge Suppose Freddy Loix hadn't had the puncture, what then? Rui Madeira looked thoughtful. It would, he agreed, have been difficult. He had led the Rally of Portugal from the fourth of the 33 stages, and now, with the second lap of Arganil and four further stages to go, victory was very definitely in...

Rally Review

Ivory Coast Rally  --  Toyota walkaway It is fashionable among publicists, some writers, and those who find pleasure in statistics, especially those with little or no competitive experience, to link the Ivory Coast Rally and the Marlboro Safari Rally as "the two African qualifiers of the World Rally Championship". The unfortunate inference is that both events are of the same calibre, each...

12:Durango, a midfield Formula 3000 team, announces Formula One ambitions for 1997. 13:ITV snatches coverage of Grand Prix racing from the BBC. with effect from 1997, with a deal which will see it pay FOCA 10 times the 'Beeb's' going rate. Veteran commentator Murray Walker, above, is left contemplating the possibility that he has just one more season remaining in F1, although sections of Britain'...

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...
