  • Description

    MONTE CARLO RALLY DRIVERS AT STARTING POINTS THROUGHOUT EUROPE WERE MAKING FINAL PREPARATIONS TONIGHT (THURSDAY) FOR THE GRUELLING 2,500-MILE (4,000-KM) EVENT. THE RALLY GETS UNDER WAY TOMORROW (FRIDAY) WHEN 39 CARS LEAVE STOCKHOLM FOR THE LONG JOURNEY TO THE PRINCIPALITY ON THE FRENCH RIVIERA.

    CARS WILL START FROM OTHER POINTS OVER THE WEEKEND. STOCKHOLM'S EARLY START IS TO MAKE UP TIME LOST BY THE FERRY CROSSING OF THE BALTIC.

    DRIVING CONDITIONS PROMISE TO BE DIFFICULT, BUT NOT NEARLY SO HAZARDOUS AS THOSE DURING LAST YEAR'S BITTER WINTER. ERIK CARLSSON HAS PROVED HIMSELF A MASTER IN THE HEAVY GOING, AND IS ONE OF THIS YEAR'S FAVOURITES. HIS WIFE -- THEY ARE DRIVING SEPARATE CARS -- IS EXPECTED TO DO WELL IN THE WOMEN'S SECTION.

    ALL CARS ARE SCHEDULED TO ARRIVE IN MONTE CARLO ON TUESDAY. THEN THERE WILL BE TWO DAYS OF MOUNTAIN AND SPEED TESTS.
