Rally review - The Sanremo Rally

Most lady drivers are content to compete for trophies only against others of their own sex and we would not be doing them any injustice by saying that against men they have very little chance of scoring top places in a general classification. There have been exceptions, of course. Jennifer Birrell, then Jennifer Nadin, used to win rallies in Britain even against the tough opposition of the...

Wonder woman

The first woman to win a world championship rally, Audi's Michelle Mouton caught the public's imagination. Liz Turner talks to her. Living legends were thick on the ground at last year's Goodwood Festival of Speed and the paddock was full of cars powerful enough to shatter the eardrums of anyone who got too close.

Rally review

Seconds out. . . Rallying doesn't come much closer than this. Argentina witnessed an epic battle between the WRC's top two protagonists There have been many close tussles in the World Rally Championship, even on such a high penalty event as the Safari, which once recorded a dead heat and required the tie-breaker to be invoked to decide the winner.
