FIA GT Series: Baku, Azerbaijan "It was not the easiest of weekends,” he confided while boarding the flight home. 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’...

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...

Rally Review -- Safari Rally

The Right One It must be all of twenty years since we first warned against the Europeanisation of that unrivalled event in the world rallying calendar, the East African Safari Rally, as it was then called. It was refreshingly different from all other rallies and was run in a way which used the vast expanse of East Africa's countryside to its fullest advantage. Its delight lay not only in the...

Prospects for 1990 BY THE time this issue of MOTOR SPORT appears, the Monte Carlo Rally, first round of the 1990 World Rally Championship, will be over, and an indication given as to which crews and cars are likely to be the best performers during the year. Already from 1989 we have Lancia, Toyota, Mitsubishi and Mazda, whilst coming soon in 1990 will be a biggerengined Mazda, a 4WD Ford Sierra...

Duncan storms Safari

Kenyan veteran Ian Duncan guided his Ford Mustang to an emphatic victory on the East African Safari Classic Rally, the toughest event on the historic rally schedule. After nine days of competition in Kenya and Tanzania, Duncan’s self-prepared Mustang was almost 10 minutes clear of former Safari winner Björn Waldegård in a Porsche 911 co-driven by the car’s owner, Iqbal Sagoo. From 24 competitive...

Rising son

Several years ago, the writer was following the Rally of New Zealand with some photographers and seeking a vantage point that would permit the taking of useable photographs without threatening life and limb. A spectator studied us for some time as we clambered up banks and through ditches before remarking, "You'll be alright there for the first few, but you'll have to look out when the Japanese...

The Death of Innocence

It is common practice not to award number 13 in the start list for any form of motorsport. On the Tour of Corsica, there has been no number four since 1986. Twice running, the driver of car number four - a Lancia on both occasions, as it happened had been killed. Rallying went about its business after the death of poor Attilio Bettega, but the demise of Henri Toivonen and his codriver, Sergio...

East African Safari

The old stars couldn't stop Rob Collinge from taking his second East African Safari Classic win. By Franca Davenport "It may have been two days shorter, but this was a longer, harder road to victory than in 2003," was how Rob Collinge summed up his second win on the East African Safari Classic. In the same car, now re-engineered as a Datsun 260Z, and accompanied by his usual co-driver, Anton...

The last true rally?

During April and May, two World Championship qualifiers took place in fairly close succession. The Safari and the Tour of Corsica were as similar as chalk and cheese; the latter conformed to all FISA's requirements and was run so that team preparations and driver requirements were as precise as those for a Grand Prix, whilst the former retained much of the old style of rallying, was as...
