Rallying's outstanding era remembered by Stuart Turner

Stuart Turner was one of the many keen and enthusiastic young men who have worked within the pages of our contemporary Motoring News, founding the Verglas rally column, which is still a weekly feature today. He is perhaps the best known of those to grace those pages, leaving to take the post of Competition Manager to BMC in 1961. The succcesses recorded by the Big Healeys and shrill Mini...

Sun, snow... and Saabs

The Swedish Rally started as a summer event held in 24-hour daylight. John Davenport looks at how it evolved into the classic snow rally Think of the Swedish Rally and the first images that come to mind are probably not mid-summer skies, endless days and dusty gravel roads. But when it was created in 1950 by the KAK — King's Automobile Club — it was an event far removed from the current snow...

Rally review

The R.A.C. Rally of Great Britain As it had been arranged that I should cover this year's R.A.C. Rally by occupying the hot seat in a works Saab driven by the Finnish Rally Champion, Simo Lampinen, Rally Review for this month was to have been an account of the rally seen from that point of view. I take little pleasure in reporting that we only managed to complete about one-fifth of the route...

A Touch of the Midnight sun

In the past, the Swedish Rally to the Midnight Sun has often clashed with the dates of the Coupe des Alpes so that, although both have been qualifying rounds in the European Rally Championship, it has been virtually impossible to compete in both. This year, there was just over a week between them, which meant that, apart from consideration of whether this made reconnaissance of both routes...

THE East African Safari comes round every year and with monotous regularity reduces a field of about a hundred cars down to what can only be described as a handful. The car that emerges on top is not always from the same manufacturer, for in the past Mercedes, Volkswagen, Peugeot, Ford and now Volvo have supplied the winner but the high average speeds over the local roads have always required a...

Rally Review

Rally of the Thousand Lakes Finland is not what you would call a wild country. Had George Borrow gone there instead of to Wales he would very likely have found some other adjective to sum up what he saw. Far less undulating than Wales, and not nearly as craggy as Scotland, this most easterly of the Scandinavian group is almost a fifty-fifty mixture of pine forests and lakes. Certainly from the...

Rally review - Rally of the 1,000 Lakes

Unfortunately, at the time of going to press very little is known about what happened on the Finnish Rally of the 1,000 Lakes, but at least the results make interesting reading. Last year, after the Monte Carlo Rally in which she shared an Austin Healey 3000 with Timo Makinen and they won the GT category, Christabel Carlisle accepted an offer to go to Finland and compete with Timo (in a B.M.C....

The R.A.C. Rally

Volvo—1stVolkswagen—2ndSaab—3rd This year's R.A.C. Rally followed the pattern set by Jack Kemsley in 1961 of relatively easy road sections interspersed with flat-out motor racing on Forestry Commission roads plus a test on Oulton Park circuit and a hill-climb at Porluck. As the competitors arrived in Blackpool for the start they were met with teeming rain and large signs informing them that...
