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...

British Win on the Monte

Although we go to Press before the final results of the Monte Carlo Rally are known it seems certain that Paddy Hopkirk and Henry Liddon have won the rally in their works Mini-Cooper S.

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

Toughest of them all The Liège If you were to ask Peter Hughes and Mike Armstrong which was most difficult, the East African Safari or the Liège-Sofia-Liège, the answer might be a straightforward vote for the Liège or a rather sheepish grin. The reason is that whereas Mike and Peter finished third and first in works Cortina GTs on the Safari neither they nor any of the other works Fords -finished...

All roads lead to roam

Not because he won’t stop talking but because you hear yourself saying ‘hang on, you didn’t finish the story about the elephants…’ A big, bluff Irishman with breezy white hair and a ready laugh, Jim planned and ran some of the great endurance rallies...

Magnificent men, flying machines

When the world's best rally driver knows the sport's most challenging roads like the back of his hand, a white-knuckle ride is guaranteed. co-driver John Davenport had to get a grip We had an inkling. But, in reality, little did we know. And innocence was, on this occasion, most definitely bliss. The 1970 1000 Lakes Rally was the first time I attempted the event as a co-driver. A couple of Brits...

Rally of the Thousand Lakes

Non-rallying people who visit Finland invariably return to their own countries with tales of a countryside which is wild and yet so serene that it is possible to pitch a tent and not see a soul for weeks; tales of a land covered with a random mixture of lakes and trees, of short summer nights, sauna and the lively hunting habits of the Finnish male. The rally driver will return with all these...

Rally review - All Change in the Market Place

Almost by tradition, RAC Rally time is when professional drivers and co-drivers are seen dining and otherwise hobnobbing with managers from opposing teams. As a new year approaches and thoughts are being given to the renewal of contracts and the making of new ones, the immense popularity of the RAC Rally has given rise to a sort of market place atmosphere. Nearly all Europe's team managers come...
