Champion in all but name

Markku Alen was the Ronnie Peterson of rallying - a true genius who was never rewarded with the championship. That's a travesty, says John Davenport There are rally drivers who thrill you when they are driving, and there are rally drivers who thrill you out of the car. Then there is Markku Alen who does both. The most charismatic personality to bless rallying with his presence, he radiated...

My only WRC win -- Per Eklund

1976 Swedish Rally by Per Eklund What was the main opposition ? Well, there were three Lancia Stratos. Björn Waldegård was in a proper four-valve car but Simo Lampinen and Per-Inge Walfridsson were in two-valve cars as well. Those cars had quite a wide track and were not so suited to the ruts made by the normal cars. So it was always going to be a fight between you and Stig Blomqvist? Stig and...

Per-Inge Walfridsson - Volvo's Super Swede

In these days of racing-car specification rally cars a regular anomaly on the leader boards has been the sight of a big, heavy, unwieldy Volvo 142, thanks to the incredible skills of the elfin, blonde-headed Swede, Per-Inge Walfridsson.

The Total Rally

Rally ReviewClark wins in South Africa Some Europeans seem to have fixed but not entirely accurate conceptions of African rallies; they are either flat-out blinds over open bush or winding escarpments, or long, interminable endurance runs through rock-strewn deserts. This isn't the case at all, for down in South Africa they have rallies which are very similar in style to British special stage...

Rally review

World Championship to Lancia For people involved with World-Class International Rallying, the months of October and November can hardly have been equalled in terms of tight schedules and concentrations of events since the period in the late 'fifties and early and mid 'sixties when every European factory seemed to run a rally team. In those days complicated permutations of preparation,...

Rally Review

RAC Rally of Great Britain The popularity of the RAC Rally of Great Britain by competitors and spectators alike has become so manifestly enormous that any attempt to describe the attendance figures brings the risk of cliche usage. Grands Prix, Wembley, Lords, Wimbledon, Arms Park and countless other famous sporting venues have all been used for comparison in recent years, so on this occasion it...
