Rally review: Australian Rally

On top down under It is never easy for an organising group to enter the World Championship for the first time, no matter how many times their event has been held outside the series. When an event jumps straight into the world series in only its second year the difficulties can be enormous. Experience counts for a great deal, and it says much for the abilities of the organisers of the 10th...

Telecom Gold Colin McRae continues his run of success in the Antipodes This year's Telecom Rally Australia lacked nothing of its former stature, despite having lost its full World Championship status to become a qualifier in only the two-wheel-drive, two-litre series, which is considered no more than a little brother of the major championship even though talk (and so far it is only talk) says...

King Carlos

One of the reasons for New Zealand's great enchantment and fascination is its remoteness. No one ever goes there on the way to somewhere else because there's pretty well nowhere else to go. It has thus escaped most of the ravages of popular tourism. It is by no means a backward country - its cities, resources and amenities are as modern as any you will find in the world but the visitor cannot...

Sainz's Antipodean Win

When Carlos Sainz and Luis Moya scored their first win World Championship victory by winning the Acropolis Rally in June, the unanimous comment was that it was an achievement which they had richly deserved for some time. They had amassed such a string of near-misses that it could only have been a matter of time before that elusive first place would be theirs. The Greek event must have given them...

Kiwi polish

Colin McRae takes a third straight win in New Zealand, and keeps his slim WRC hopes alive. Sponsorship of events, teams and drivers by tobacco companies, notably to promote particular cigarette brands, has been as common for many years in rallying as it has in other sports. The reason is straightforward. Tobacco advertising is severely restricted in many countries, banned altogether in some, and...

Rally Review -- New Zealand Rally

Sainz' Kiwi Adventure The New Zealand Rally has, for a number of years, experienced a love-hate relationship with FISA. It has been in and out of the World Championship several times, and even this year was not among the first list of definite qualifiers announced by FISA. Instead, it was in the short list of four from which three qualifiers were chosen late last year, long after the bulk of...

New Status, New Symbol

With a re-named sponsor and restored championship status, the Rally Australia drew a world-class entry, an an unexpected victor. Before you think that Australia's contribution to the World Rally Championship has acquired a new sponsor, let me explain that it is the same one as last year, with a different name. Australian Telecommunications has combined bits of its former title to become known as...
