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...

Rally review - Lombard RAC

To casual watchers, November's Lombard RAC Rally probably seemed little changed from the previous year. Apart from a shift of headquarters from Nottingham to Harrogate, and some differences in the actual special stages used, the style was just the same. Indeed, it was as it has been for some years; stately homes and private estates on the Sunday, followed by forest roads on the weekdays. But...

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...

Swede dreams

Colin McRae's run of wins came to an end in Malaysia, though he remained in championship contention For two countries so close together, separated only by the narrow ribbon of water known as the Strait of Malacca, Indonesia and Malaysia have international rallies which are vastly different. True that the terrain and the weather are similar, but the style and efficiency of running are not at all...

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. This year popular Finnish driver Henri Toivonen and his American-born Italian co-driver Sergio Cresto both died in a terrible accident when their Lancia Delta S4...

King Francios the First - Rally of Portugal

It is a common belief that the Ford Escort came after the Ford Cortina, but this is a misconception. There was a Ford Escort made in the '50s, a kind of estate car, sister to the Squire and based on the Prefect of the time. It was never rallied by the factory. at least, not that I recall, but it did make many appearances in club events. But it is the later Escort, the one which at first had...

Through the Looking Glass

The international rally season traditionally opens in Monte Carlo. David Williams explains how, this year, it both did and didn't . . . There is a school of thought that Patrick Bernardini is on to a good thing. In years to come, the theory goes, people will remember only that he won the 1996 Monte Carlo Rally. His name will be on the list of winners for as long as anyone cares that there is such...

Rally review: Argentina Rally

Lancia fully in control So many of the World Rally Championship's formerly active teams have called a halt to their rallying in the past eighteen months, some as a result of unacceptable changes of FISA's rules and subsequent differing interpretations, some simply due to a marked lack of success, that Lancia's unopposed gallop to the top of the Championship table this year has hardly been...

RALLY REVIEW

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...

Subaru impressive

On his first visit to Indonesia, Colin McRae adapted to the unusual humidity and took an early lead in the Asia-Pacific Rally Championship Whenever a group of organisers get together to link their different international events into a championship series, it's not long before the FIA steps in, claims it as its own and applies its own rules. It happened in Africa and it has now happened in the Far...
