Rally Review

Fiat Invincible Since last month's Rally Review was written, two events in the World Rally Championship have taken place, and before this issue of Motor Sport is published yet another will have gone by before the RAC Rally of Great Britain in November. By that time the World Rally Championship will have been Italian clinched by Fiat, for after the Sanremo Rally the Italian team's points total was...

Rally Review

Total Rally It is our experience that people who have no first-hand knowledge of the continent of Africa frequently labour under grave misconceptions concerning its geography. A popular notion is that the northern part is all sand, deserts, pyramids and Foreign Legion forts, and the south a mass of hot, steaming jungle and dusty plains. Equally popular is the conception that rallies in North...

Driver opinions

Only two men have driven works-built 131 and Escort in the relevant period : Björn Waldegård and Simo Lampinen. Lampinen: 'The Escort was fantastic, a real joy. You could do 20 things wrong and still get it back each time. It was a natural oversteerer. So long as you could turn the wheel, you were okay. And the engine was unbelievable. "The Fiat was more of a racing car. It helped to be really...

Rally review - Lombard RAC

To casual watchers, November's Lombard RAC Rally probably seemed little changed from the previous year. Apart from a shift of headquarters from Nottingham to Harrogate, and some differences in the actual special stages used, the style was just the same. Indeed, it was as it has been for some years; stately homes and private estates on the Sunday, followed by forest roads on the weekdays. But...

Fighting on the home front

Jimmy McRae never really carved out an international rally career – but he didn’t need to when the competition was so good at homeBy John Davenport To successfully take up rallying after the first flush of youth is not unknown in our sport. Eugen Böhringer did not start his career until 1958 when he was 36 years old, then went on to win the European Rally Championship and the Liège-Sofia-Liège...

Grand Prix Notebook

Malaysia, Bahrain and China Formula 1 left its muted hybrid trail through the early-season far stretches of the globe: amid the rubber plantations of Malaysia, the oil-producing region of the Gulf and the ongoing industrialisation of China. Chasing an uncertain future, it nonetheless provided at least one race so thrilling that it left those who’d been critical of the new formula looking silly. A...

Long-distance runaround

Meet a man who has opened borders, closed Tower Bridge and practically created a whole sport I used to think it was a long drive to Oulton Park. I’m put to shame by Philip Young, who recently spent 10½ days on the road from Cape Town to London in a Fiat Panda TwinAir, breaking the previous record by more than a day. As Philip’s adventures go it was relatively tame – he and co-driver Paul Brace...

Forever with blue genes

Alan Mann Racing’s cars are famous for being cloaked in red and gold – but a strong association with Ford, now as in period, is equally symbolic. With the team on the verge of scaling back, we took a lingering glance at a fleet that will soon partially be dismantledWriter: Gordon Cruickshank Photographer: Matthew Howell It fits, somehow. Henry Mann, son of 1970s racing team boss Alan Mann, has a...

Ove achiever

The spot on the F1 pit wall which Ove Andersson occupies today seems a far cry from his background as a top-line rally driver. But, as John Davenport explains, these early experiences were crucial in shaping Toyota's motorsport general It cannot have escaped your notice that several successful rally men have migrated to the world of Formula One in recent years. Ferrari has two, its president and...

A Club Sprint

"Those were the days. Drive to the event, pump up the tyres and off you go." How many club meeting rooms and saloon bars have echoed with those sentiments as nostalgia drifts across normal chatter? In racing terms our bar-room expert is right in all but a minority of formulae: even the classic saloons (pre-1957) tend is be trailer— mounted today, but when you get outside the realms of racing then...
