Rally Review -- Paris-Dakar Raid

Citroën's Sand Dance Mitsubishi had its best opportunity since 1986 to win the Pioneer Paris-Tripoli-Dakar. Not only did the Sonauto squad have more experience than its rivals, it soon transpired it had the better vehicle. Nevertheless, the rookie team, Camel Citroën, started as favourite and, despite a number of major set-backs, won comfortably. Ari Vatanen even reckoned it had been the easiest...

What WASA was

The age-old question of whether women drive as well as men is too puerile to warrant discussion, especially in the age of universal motoring. But it came up in the 1920s, when fewer of the female sex were to be seen behind the steering wheel and, although there had been notably skilled lady racing drivers around from the very early days, the Brooklands' authorities, with a distant exception, were...

Letters from Readers

N.B.—Opinions expressed are those of our Correspondents and MOTOR SPORT does not necessarily associate itself with them.—Ed.

Marathon multiplicity

Rallying, so goes the story which we have occasionally retold, began to evolve when enthusiasts of the motor car sought more from its sporting potential than just getting from one place to another in the least possible time. Many felt that their competitive appetites would not be satisfied without a strong lacing of adventure. For them, circuit racing was far too repetitive, even to the point of...

Two decades of the Dakar

It started as a new year’s jolly for high-living Frenchmen in the 1970s but became a high-tech showpiece in the ‘80s. Jeremy Hart looks at the most gruelling rally of them all – the Paris-Dakar January 1982. Tears at Number 10, newsreaders scrabbling for a map of north-west Africa and travel agents panicking to get News of the World scribes on the first plane to Timbuktu. Lost, for reasons still...
