RALLY REVIEW - RALLY AUSTRALIA

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...

Sikh and repair

Joginder Singh was perhaps the greatest exponent of the old-style safari - fast, determined and a demon spanner-man. John Davenport catches up with this three-time winner in sunbury-on-thames! During the 2000 Rally of Great Britain, I was leaving the fourth stage when I saw Richard Burns and Robert Reid working on their Subaru Impreza in a lay-by. They were improvising a sling, using the spare...

Letters

Jo is the genuine article Sir, I was pleased to read the ‘Lunch with…’ article on Jo Ramirez in the October issue, and thought I would share some details of my only meeting with him, which happened purely by chance, because I found him to be ‘one of the nice guys’. My wife and I were in Verona in 2005 for the opera and stepped into the hotel lift on the way to the performance. We were joined by...

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...

Don't forget Salonen

Sir, I read your World's Best Rally Driver article (April 2000) with much interest having put the job in the 'too-hard basket' for a local magazine. If you must pick one, then Hamm seems a good choice. My outstanding impression of him remains being so smooth in a big Mercedes after the tail-out Escort. Timo Salonen is missing from your list He has a fine reputation in New Zealand, his Peugeot win...

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...
