RETRO-FACT   Fifty years ago in January 1965 the weather played havoc during Rallye Monte-Carlo when after Chambery heavy snow decimated the 276-car entry. Just 35 cars struggled to the finish. A Mini Cooper S won, in the hands of Timo Makinen, with Eugen Bohringer runner-up in the unsuitable Porsche 904, followed by Pat Moss (SAAB 96). For the record, two Austin 1800s finished the event and 26-year-old Roger Clark took his Rover 2000 to a well-deserved 6th place overall.
