OPPORTUNITIES & KNOCKS

UNITIES & KNOCKS FORD'S RALLY BOSS, MALCOLM WILSON, WANTS THE SPORT TO NURTURE NEW TALENT; FOR WHEN HE WAS BRITAIN'S BRIGHT RALLY STAR, THE SYSTEM LET HIM DOWN. BY JOHN DAVENPORT RECOVERING FROM A LOW POINT IS not easy, but it helps considerably when your team principal understands exactly what you are going through. Ford's Colin McRae will vouch for that. An unpleasant crash in Corsica last...

RAC Rally glory for Ari the Lion King

1984 Peugeot on a roll as Vatanen triumphs over Quattros in the British forests A Peugeot victory on the tough RAC Rally confirmed that even Audi's new Sport Quattro wasn't enough to maintain domination of the rally world. Peugeot's 205T16 homologation special scored a sensational victory despite a series of dramas including an on-the-roof moment. "When I was hanging upside down in the seat belts...

Rally review

Marlboro Safari Rally REPETITIONS of victory in World Championship rallies are not exactly uncommon. Quite a number of drivers have scored doubles, others have completed hat-tricks whilst four wins by the same driver are not unkown. But to win five times is unique, a distinction achieved in Kenya last month when Shekhar Mehta won the Marlboro Safari Rally in a Datsun Violet GT. Four of those five...

In the hot seat

Surely the most humanistic politician in Brussels, Ari Vatanen is also one of the most exciting rally drivers ever to grace this earth. So what was it like driving the widest-ever Escort and doing Pikes one-handed? Your 1988 run on Pikes Peak in the Peugeot 405 was breathtaking tell us about taking one hand off the wheel and using it as a sunshield. (Yes, we've seen the footage!) Alex Roache,...

Monte-Carlo Rally

Yorkshiremen would liken it to apple pie without the cheese, Welshmen to the Llanelli rugby posts without their sospan cappings, whilst Scots would probably mutter darkly about kilts without their sporrans. The latter are essential parts of the former. Separated, they become meaningless, and many will consider this to have been the fate of January's Monte-Carlo Rally, its essence destroyed by the...

Rally review: McRae of sunshine

Despite setbacks during the early stages of the event, Colin McRae fought back to take a second consecutive victory on home soil. In so doing, the Scot becomes the UK's first outright world rally champion Hard on the heels of that great commotion which followed Spain's Catalunya Rally, after which the works Toyota Castrol Team was not only deprived of all its points for 1995 but disallowed from...

The months ahead

By the time you read this, the Monte-Carlo Rally will be over by at least four days and the first points scores of the 1983 World Rally Championship will be known. The Opel/Audi tussle will have been renewed, with the addition of Lancia as a buffer or perhaps even the major reagent, and we will have had the first sight of the new Nissan 240 RS under competitive conditions. Renault will again have...

Marlboro Safari Rally

Would you believe it possible for a driver to win a World Championship rally having twice broken his rear axle in competitive sections? Or for a driver to be classed as a finisher after amassing penalties totalling more than a day? Those whose rallying has never taken thorn beyond Europe would probably give a negative answer to both questions, but anyone with experience of rallying in Africa,...

Co-Drivers - why do they do that?

Artist, masochist or just plain mad? What makes a co-driver take all the risks but not the glory? John Davenport describes life in the other seat You are sitting, strapped into the passenger seat of a hugely powerful car that is about to be driven down a most unsuitable road at improbable speed. In a snowstorm. You are there of your own free will. You are looking forward to the experience. Most...

Of clocks and cock-ups...

You can have the fastest, most reliable car on the rally, the most talented crew and the best driver, but if you can't keep track of time, you can easily snatch defeat from the jaws of victory. John Davenport remembers those occasions when time stood still for no-one. It was a warm, balmy October evening in San Remo. The participants in the 1974 San Remo Rally were stirring from their afternoon...
