Comment  Perhaps the most important single club involved in today's classic rallying scene is the HRCR (the Historic Rally Car Register), created way back in 1983 by Philip Young and Don Pither. Over the years its members have created some of the most exciting and well known events in the history of the sport. I‘m thinking Marathon, Monte Carlo Challenge and Peking to Paris. In 2017, as rallying continues to expand business-wise, we should remember the HRCR has never been a commercial organisation. Because of this the Club has adopted the role of trusted 'Uncle' and I rather like that.

Retro-Fact  Because of bad weather, the 1963 Monte-Carlo Rally was the toughest for years. Just 100 of the 292 crews made it through to the finish, and those who chose Athens as their start town never made it further than Nich in Yugoslavia thanks to heavy falls of snow. Rosemary Smith/Rosemary Sears luckily survived unhurt while attempting the Col de Perty, their Imp leaving the road and plunging into the ravine below. And while Bo Ljungfeldt in his Ford Falcon was quickest on five of the six special stages, road penalties relegated him to 43rd overall, leaving Erik Carlsson/Gunner Palm (SAAB) to take a well-deserved victory.
