Rally review: McRae of sunshine

Despite setbacks during the early stages of the event, Colin McRae fought back to take a second consecutive victory on home soil. In so doing, the Scot becomes the UK's first outright world rally champion Hard on the heels of that great commotion which followed Spain's Catalunya Rally, after which the works Toyota Castrol Team was not only deprived of all its points for 1995 but disallowed from...

The months ahead

By the time you read this, the Monte-Carlo Rally will be over by at least four days and the first points scores of the 1983 World Rally Championship will be known. The Opel/Audi tussle will have been renewed, with the addition of Lancia as a buffer or perhaps even the major reagent, and we will have had the first sight of the new Nissan 240 RS under competitive conditions. Renault will again have...

Lombard RAC Rally

Fourteenth time lucky! When Peugeot's Jean Todt first recognised the increasing flexibility and freedom offered by FISA's vehicle regulations, and convinced his company that they should build, market and seek homologation for a car designed specifically to win rallies, he changed the face of modern rallying. He cannot be censured for this. It was simply he who was astute enough to spot the...

Sanremo Rally

Sainz and Sinners When Italy's Sanremo Rally ended in victory for Frenchmen Didier Auriol and Bernard Occelli in their Martini-backed works Lancia, it could not have been a surprise to them that theirs was a triumph which was overshadowed by another. Spanish pair Carlos Sainz and Luis Moya got their Toyota Celica GT4 into third place, Sainz thereby scoring just enough points to clinch the title...

Cyprus Rally

Gone are the days when cars went out on rally routes and officials were content to tally their scores only when they returned. Nowadays organisers must have a base which is in contact with various parts of the roule so that they can always be aware of progress and remain in control. The effectiveness of the means of communication which organisers employ for this purpose has become almost a...

Delta force

The return of Miki Biasion to Lancia was expected to be marked by a victory. But… There is little doubt that this year's relegation by the FIA of certain rallies of the World Rally Championship to count only for the Two-Wheel Drive Cup was carried out, partly at least, at the instigation of the world's leading four-wheel drive teams. They have very large budgets, but the costs of tackling 13...

Quattro view

Malcolm Wilson took MRG as co-driver on the RAC Rally... There is little doubt that no other current rally car creates as much interest, or in some areas controversy, as the Audi Quattro. The most technically advanced car to grace the World Championship arena until the arrival of the GpB Lancia Rally, the Gp4 Quattro is the car on which the majority of (rich!) aspiring drivers would like to get...

Mad for it

1995: Oasis rule the music world and Colin McRae is the motorsport equivalent, dripping with attitude and zest. What's the story of his WRC glory? John Davenport looks back Ten years ago British rallying got the same kind of boost as that recently experienced by English cricket when, on November 22 1995, Colin McRae captured the title of World Rally Champion by winning the RAC Rally of Great...

JANUARY 19: The March F1 team appears set to be sold. 19: At a meeting chaired by John Macdonald, there is healthy support for the 1993 British F2 Championship.
