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...

Tyred And Weary

Budgets running into several millions of pounds, the most modern technology available and the most comprehensive development and support programmes that can be amassed are still not enough to fend off one of the oldest pitfalls in the rally game — a puncture! During the Argentina Rally at the end of July the main battle, well ahead of all the others, was between the leading drivers of Lancia and...

Rally review: Australian Rally

On top down under It is never easy for an organising group to enter the World Championship for the first time, no matter how many times their event has been held outside the series. When an event jumps straight into the world series in only its second year the difficulties can be enormous. Experience counts for a great deal, and it says much for the abilities of the organisers of the 10th...

Worth the bother?

The quality of the entry on the Rally of Argentina was second-rate for an event with official World Championship status… Last month we spoke of the effects which FIA 'relegation' of certain events in the World Rally Championship has had upon the quality of those events and the entries they have attracted. The world's major teams, using highly expensive four-wheel-drive cars and backed by...

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. However, when crews went out to begin their reconnaissance they soon discovered that the expression "not rough" was merely relative, and that the route was as rugged...

Cataluña Rally When Toyota Team Europe went to Spain for the Cataluña Rally the prime object was to get Carlos Sainz and Luis Moya on the winners rostrum. The secondary object was to keep rivals Juha Kankkunen and Juha Piironen out of the top points-scoring positions. The double purpose had two reasons. In the first place, Sainz needed points to stay ahead of Kankkunen and to keep his World...

Four-Play!

Four-play! IN ONE of the conference rooms of Heathrow's Excelsior Airport Hotel, there was a hubbub of the kind which is common at gatherings of people who share a common interest; people of many nationalities who had assembled for a sporting purpose and who were itching to see the morning, when they would set out in pairs on their five day contest against a hundred-odd other pairs, the weather,...

San Remo Rally

”Are you going to do the Flowers"? So one competitor used to ask another in years past to enquire whether someone planned to compete in the Rally of the Flowers, so named after the thriving horticultural industry in the hills overlooking Sanremo, Italy, where the rally was always based. Latterly the event has taken the name of San Remo, but this year the "Rallye dei Fiori" title reappeared for a...

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. This year is no exception, and although no less than ten makes have scored points so far, two are so far ahead that neither can be overtaken by any of the others. Toyota...

Miki taker

Toyota was expected to win, Subaru should have won, but the Acropolis tore the heart out of the entry and victory went to Ford, thanks largely to a superbly judged drive from Miki Biasion Had the 1993 Acropolis Rally taken place under the regulations prevailing 20 or so years ago, the SCDA would have been delighted. It was hotter this year than it has been for 10 years at least, a reminder of the...
