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...

Oris Rally Clásico

The statistics will relate that the 2014 Oris Rally Clásico was won by local hero Nadal Galiana in his tightly prepared Ford Escort, the Mallorcan beating the more powerful Porsche 911 RS of German Michael Eschmann in a duel that lasted until the penultimate stage. Mallorcans also won the more sedate ‘regularity’ category, the Castaners (father and son) taking the top step of the podium in their...

Monte Carlo Rallye Historique

Following the barely melted tyre tracks of mid-January’s WRC event, the ACO’s Monte Carlo Rallye Historique used most of the same stages a few days later to test the mettle of historic cars and their crews. This year Mini Cooper was ‘featured model’ with 27 entered, recalling the Hopkirk/Liddon success of 1964, though an Opel would top the prize list. The relatively low attrition rate (of 309...

Rally Review - Corsica

Tragedy repeated in Corsica For the second year in succession tragedy has struck the Lancia team whilst competing in the Tour of Corsica. Last year Italian driver Attilio Bettega was killed when his Lancia Rally ditched and hit a tree.

Battling Hardman ensures that it's not all Chiles play

Tour Auto After an almighty five-day battle against the Ferrari 250LM of Peter Hardman, Chris Chiles took a second consecutive Tour Auto victory in his Ford GT40. After a mix of timed road stages and circuit races across central and southern France en route to the finish in Cannes, Chiles had a winning margin of just 13sec. For much of the event it had been a three-way lead battle courtesy of...

Interview - Gerard Larrousse

A man with a responsibility to win at Le Mans and in F1 Gerard Larrousse takes the role of driver-turned-professional manager to a new level. Many team managers are like their football equivalents, participants freshly charged with the task of exhorting and guiding their former team-mates to even greater things. None of the motor sporting directors I have met can really match Larrousse's record...
