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...

Big numbers

Times are hard, but racing memorabilia is still selling Even in these troubled times, auction records are still broken on a weekly basis. In fact, an auction hardly passes without a press release containing the words ‘record price achieved’ or ‘new world record set’. But when a car registration number sells for £397,500 at the Bonhams Goodwood Revival sale, setting a new record (the previous was...

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...

The Texaco Tour of Britain

The Texaco oil company has saved the 1976 Tour of Britain, threatened with cancellation by the withdrawal of sponsorship by Avon and Motor. The Texaco Tour, organised by the BRSCC as usual, will be longer than the three previous events and the prize fund will be larger. The BRSCC's Peter Browning hopes for entries from several Grand Prix drivers (James Hunt is confirmed already) and Ford's Stuart...

Interview: Terry Hoyle

Unlike their racing counterparts, rallying's engine builders rarely receive recognition for their labours. It's hard to pin down the exact reason, but probably the situation isn't helped by the factory-based rally teams. In the "assemblatore" world of single-seater racing, the choice of engine builders and power units themselves is wide and varied. It's a buyers' market. Rallying has never got to...

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...

Rally review

Canadian Shell 4,000 Rally The Canadian Shell 4,000 Rally is the World's longest event held under F.I.A. rules at the moment and the longest anyway with the demise of the Round Australia Trial. This year it provided several "firsts." The first win for a non-Canadian crew, the first international rally win for Boreham's new '67 shape Lotus Cortina (an early baptism considering it took the old-...

Rally review: Monte Carlo Rally

Outright win for B.M.C.'s Mini-Cooper S under very tough conditions Every year more is written about the Monte Carlo Rally than any other international rally, and as each year passes it becomes more difficult to say something fresh about it. To start with, through the dual mediums of advertising and public relations, nearly everybody will know by now who won the event and that for the second year...
