Rallye de Monte Carlo

Rally de Monte Carlo 1986

This record, like many in Rally Week, will take you to another place instead of planned. I’m sure you know perfectly well how the opening ceremony of the WRC season took place this year. And you know, 2021 is the end of the current WRC car era. This story will be about the opening rally of the end of the other World Rally Championship car group – the 1986 Rallye de Monte Carlo.

Arctic Lapland Rally ’21

Arctic Lapland Rally Week #03

This early Thursday morning, nature itself reminded me of what I need to do or at least start doing. Having spent a good half hour intensively clearing the only entry into the World from metric snow tongues and walls, I put probably a good third of the text in mind. I felt like a real polar resident, waving a snow shovel in the morning instead of exercising or yoga.

If not for the main photo of the article, then at least in the archive.

Rallye de Balagne ’20

The U.S. Rally Championship has enough rallies that are strongly reminiscent of the WRC Championship. In the winter, the WRC takes place in Sweden, and a similar Sno * Drift rally takes place in the USA.

Rally Internazionale Storico Costa Smeralda ’20

Rally Internazionale Storico Costa Smeralda

A couple of months ago, I had the great pleasure of hearing one really extremely interesting interview. So I had a thought, to write about another woman in the rally world. She is, among other things, one of the most famous female co-drivers, 1892m. receiving the Halda Award – the highest evaluation trophy that a reader of the pace notes can receive. Plus she’s one of two people in history who has earned points at the World Rally Championship as a driver and as a co-driver. And here last week, Mrs. Fabrizia Pons put another cup on her shelf.
