Tommi gun

Bruno's rough cut

On the verge of his first outright World Rally Championship success, Bruno Thiry’s Escort came to a halt. Didier Auriol was handily placed to profit. The Ford team suffered the tantalising and bitterly disappointing loss of a maximum points score in the all-tarmac Tour of Corsica when, just as it seemed likely that Belgian crew Bruno Thiry and Stephane Prevot would romp home to a win, ahead of...

Chaos reigns in Spain

McRae is forced to let his team-mate win, but that quickly became the secondary talking point… What a commotion was caused during and after Spain's qualifier in the World Rally Championship! It was nothing to do with the contest itself, which was organised efficiently, but secondary events were bizarre; disqualifications as a result of cheating; team orders affecting the overall winner; and, to...

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...

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 -- 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...

Port for all

Gone are the days when the old TAP Rally had no roadbook, no mapping of any real value to navigators and presented its route merely by a list of the numbers displayed on roadside kilometre stones. If you hadn't made a reconnaissance of the whole route and made your own road book as well as pace notes, you stood no chance, and privateers who could not afford to make a pre-event run used to get...
