Event of the month -- Robert Albert Clark Rally

Just like old times. The traditions of the RAC Rally have been revived in a historic event that looks certain to grow in popularity. By Paul Lawrence. "This is the way a rally is supposed to be," said Stig Blomqvist during a quick service halt in a lay-by off the A68 in Northumberland.

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...

What in the world is going on?

By John Davenport. The 1990s boom years of the World Rally Championship have become a distant memory. Some say it has lost its way, with one dominant driver, rules confusion and media apathy As it celebrates its 35th birthday, the World Rally Championship appears to some observers to be in crisis, while to others it is the epitome of 21st- Century motor sport. Where does the truth lie? What are...

Fantastic road that's almost impossible to top

Strange how the mind plays tricks. I knew exactly how it was going to be. I'd seen it so many times before. Or had I? Of course I had. A smear of headlights. A rip of engine. A big, big slide. An extravagant Scandinavian Flick. Another big, big slide. An ice ballet danced to a thunderously brilliant airhorn-flashgun son et lumiere. Yep, the most famous map reference in rallying was an attractive...
