It wasn’t exactly the most fleet-looking Ferrari, but the Daytona was quick, and it proved a real heavy-hitter for years on track. Today, it’s still terrorising historic grids By Richard Heseltine The sense of disappointment was palpable. Somehow it appeared just so, well, predictable. When ushered in at the 1968 Paris Motor Show, Ferrari’s big-boned and full-bodied 365GTB/4 was met with muted...

Rally Review

The Portuguese Rally In most rallies nowadays, tyres play a vital role. It is of the utmost importance to provide cars with as much grip as modern tyre technology can achieve, so on tarmac special stages one finds tyres not at all dissimilar to those used on racing circuits, on rough roads one finds chunky treads, on smooth, hard roads a compromise of the two and on ice or snow a combination of...
