Stéphane Ratel is not only the master of his GT racing universe, but also a master of understatement. The inaugural Baku World Challenge certainly had its challenges. The FIA GT Series championship finale would be fought out around a new street circuit on the waterfront of Azerbaijan’...

Group En-ergy !

Group En--ergy! WHEN the organisers of the Ivory Coast Rally distributed publicity material in advance of the 1989 event, they emphasised that it would not be a car-breaker and that rough roads would be avoided as much as possible.

Rally Review -- Argentinian Rally

Five and Out No matter how many manufacturers' teams contest the World Rally Championship, history records that, when the half-year stage is reached, the number actually in contention for the lead has been whittled down to two.

John Davenport tells why the Sunny couldn't stand the heat When the Group B dinosaurs disappeared overnight in 1986 there were few four-wheel-drive GpA cars around to fill the evolutionary gap. Lancia, like the magician it was, produced the Delta HF and was away on a five-...

East African Safari Classic Rally

Mombasa, Kenya Wet weather on a Safari Rally is seldom welcomed by the competitors, whose vocabulary will quickly include such phrases as ‘mud holes’, ‘black cotton’ and ‘flash floods’. The winner of the last really wet Safari, the one held in 1977, was Björn Waldegård and so it was no surprise to find him winning the Kenya Airways East African Safari Classic Rally when the weather turned nasty...
