Obituary – Tony Fall

1940-2007 With the death of Tony Fall, rallying has to mourn one of its most versatile and charming characters as well as a raconteur who enlivened many a gathering. At the age of 67, Tony was doing what he enjoyed most, working with fellow rally men as an official on the East African Safari when, at the night halt in Arusha, he passed away in his sleep. His rally career started while he was...

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...

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.

The right track?

The right track? HENRI TOIVONEN CHARMING, FUN, AND SOARING star of the rally world. Youngest-ever winner of the RAC, unafraid of the brutal Delta S4, he was a future world champion until Lancia's outlandish Gp B pacesetter claimed his life, and his co-driver's, in 1986. The loss of this popular, personable man scrapped Gp B overnight. Henri would not have mourned it. For that wasn't where he had...

But when each one is over, one or two points always remain firmly fixed in your mind above all the others. The TAP Rally had several unique features, but perhaps the ones which are most likely to be remembered...

Datsun 240Z

While the British sports car industry limped on in the early 1970s, Nissan rewrote the rules with a newcomer that blended power, looks and balanced handling Time was when Japanese cars were rubbish. A generalisation perhaps, but until you've experienced the full horror of an Isuzu Bellet in the wet, or a Datsun Cherry 100A in the dry for that matter, then you're frankly in no position to argue....
