First non-Nordic driver to win

When the Safari Rally achieved world recognition and began to attract drivers from all over the globe, the visitors, even the most experienced and battle-hardened professionals found it very difficult indeed to beat the local crews. A special skill was required to do well on this event, and East African residents were so accustomed to local conditions and "reading the signs" that it was not until...

Rally review: Acropolis Rally

Lancia eases the strain If someone had asked us whether the Acropolis Rally had ever been won by a crew in a Lancia Fulvia or a Stratos, and demanded an immediate, off-the-cuff answer, we would probably have answered that both these eminently successful cars of the past had the Greek event included in their list of victories. We would have been wrong, of course. An Aurelia won in 1958, but it was...

Castrol Welsh Rally

Long gone are the times when this event was crammed into a weekend without respite, starting on a Friday evening and finishing on the Sunday after no official rest stops at all. Like other events which have been softened by FISA decree, the Welsh now has rest stops, whilst the need for main road runs from and back to Cardiff has been removed by locating the start and finish in Mid-Wales, much...

Quattro View

Malcolm Wilson took Mike Greasley 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 until the arrival of the GpB Lancia Rally, the GpB Quattro is the car on which the majority of (rich) aspiring drivers would like to get...

Rising in the West

Fifteen minutes of fame Mitsubishi Starion: British Open Rally Championship, 1988 Ford was expected to dominate our home series when it went fully Group A in 1988. But for a while, John Davenport explains, the Blue Oval was eclipsed by a red sun Group B's legacy was the universal adoption of turbos and four-wheel-drive for rally cars. But initially, the new breed of Group A cars took a time to...

McRae of sunshine

As threat of a controversial stages finish evaporated, Britain's rising star completed a deserved victory - the first such home success since 1976 Eighteen years: a long time for a premier British sporting event to be without a British winner. But that is as long as it has taken for a Briton to repeat the feat of Roger Clark, The 1994 Network Q RAC Rally was won in fine style by Scotsmen Colin...

Rally Review -- Tour of Corsica

Sainz on Corse Almost since the need to drive fast began to be an essential part of rallying, those responsible for preparing cars have had two major objectives; speed and reliability. Most other claims on the attention of car builders, for example, handling, flexibility and the need to have components fitted in such a way that they can be replaced quickly at the roadside, evolve from one of...

Rally Review -- Monte Carlo Rally 1991

The fortunes of British teams in world class rallying have been pretty impoverished since the fruitful days of the Ford Escort RS. British teams using British cars, that is. First Peugeot began monopolising victory rostrums, then Lancia, and it was not until Toyota began to notch up wins that the Italian team had any opposition at all. Then came other Japanese teams, but there was a distinct...
