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...

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...

Not such a wild Rover

Who promotes the best one-make racing series in the UK? Depends whom you ask, really. There are so many of the flaming things nowadays that it's almost as easy to name the cars which aren't catered for by a subsidised championship. Even without Mazda, which has axed the MX-5 UK Cup in favour of a British Touring Car Championship programme, and Honda, which has cut back its support for the CRX...

Four-Play!

Four-play! IN ONE of the conference rooms of Heathrow's Excelsior Airport Hotel, there was a hubbub of the kind which is common at gatherings of people who share a common interest; people of many nationalities who had assembled for a sporting purpose and who were itching to see the morning, when they would set out in pairs on their five day contest against a hundred-odd other pairs, the weather,...

A Catalogue of Disasters

A Catalogue of Disasters IT CAME as no surprise that this year's Monte Carlo Rally was completely snow free and that the dry stages contained only occasional ice patches. After all, winter had been mild all over Europe and the ski resorts were facing financial disaster. Nevertheless, the teams and tyre companies had to lay in stocks of all their tyre types, just in case a last minute snowfall...

Obituaries

Leila Lombardi We were saddened to hear of the recent death of Leila Lombardi, who entered the record books on April 27 1975 by becoming the first woman to score a point — or at least half a point — in a World Championship F1 Grand Prix. Her March 75 1 was holding down sixth place in the Spanish GP at Montjuich Park when the race was stopped, Rolf Stommelen's Embassy-Hill having left the track...

Under scrutiny; Rally Engineering Development

The French connection Jimmy McRae has received a great deal of praise in the last couple of years following success in the British Open Rally Championship in both 1987 and 1988, as has Ford since he claimed the title on both occasions driving a Sierra Cosworth. Talent and a competitive car would not be enough, however, without the third side of the triangle, that of the preparation. To the casual...

Close Fight

Whether it be at Twickenham, Murrayfield or a levelled coal tip on the slopes of the upper Neath Valley, a rugby match is only as good as its players make it. Send a bunch of duffers to Arms Park and the crowd will go away feeling cheated; take the Barbarians to any club ground, however modest, and it will respond with vigor and enthusiasm. So it is with rallying. The best rally in the world will...

Rally review: Lombard RAC Rally

Kankkunen's Kingdom Last month we took a gamble by suggesting that a Lancia domination of November's Lombard RAC Rally, very probable on recent form, might give rise to one of the contrived results for which the Italian team has become noted in the past year or so. The gamble ended in deadlock and we find ourselves having neither to eat our words, nor to crow about them. Whilst Massimo Biasion,...
