John Davenport - Obituary for Björn Waldegård

I knew Björn from his first RAC Rally appearance in 1965 until his last appearance on a competitive event - the Safari Classic of 2013. I was reporting rallies during his early successes, particularly the Monte Carlo victories of 1969 and 1970. I never co-drove with him in the proper sense but I did sit beside him on half a dozen 'Slowly Sideways' events in Porsche 911s and Toyota Celica Turbos. A nicer man you could not have wished to meet for whom I think no one could possibly have a bad word. Technically competent concerning the car and a brilliant natural driver behind the wheel, he will be universally mourned.

Spectator Voting – Victory for the Lancia Stratos

In the 1970s, the Lancia Stratos changed the face of rallying. It was the first purpose-built rally car ever built - and it is still successful. The fans of the Eifel Rallye Festival just voted it as the greatest car of the 2014 event. First place went to the 1974 Alitalia car of Fred Walter/Klaus Hucke (start number 61). Runner up was a vehicle that can hardly be more different than the Stratos. This was the Opel Commodore GS/E driven by Andreas Kramer/Thomas Kalbitzer (No. 23).
