    Background: Ove Andersson of Sweden and his British co-driver David Stone today (Friday, Jan 29th) won the Monte Carlo Rally.

    They drove a French Renault Alpine. Renaults were also placed second and equal third and two other were placed in the first 10.

    Andersson led from start to finish in the rally. He crowed the finishing line with a 40 second lead over Jean-Luc Therier of France. Jean-Claude Andruet of France tied for third with Bjorn Waldogaard of Sweden driving a Porsche. Waldegaard had won the two previous rallies.

    After his win Andersson, smiling broadly, doused his battered blue car with champagne. The 32-year-old mechanic said it was they test car he had ever driven.

    During the night the four leading cars battled for victory through seven speed test sections on some of the most precipitous and narrow roads in France. There was rarely more than a minute separating than.

    At one stage Therier chopped Andersson's lead to eight seconds, but the Swede put up the fastest time on the next section and wont ahead again.

    The women's prize went to Hannelore Werner of West Germany driving a BMW.

    Of the 248 cars which started in the rally a week ago, only 22 reached the finished line today.

    The Renaults won the team prize and also their class prize. This was the first time French cars had won since Citroen triumphed in 1956.
