  • Description

    OFFICIALS SAID IN MONTE CARLO TODAY (TUESDAY) THAT IT SEEMED CERTAIN THAT FEWER THAN 180 CARS WOULD BE CLASSIFIED AS FINISHING THIS YEAR'S MONTE CARLO RALLY. SO, DESPITE THE EXCEPTIONALLY GOOD CONDITIONS, OVER 100 CARS FAILED TO COMPLETE THE 2,700 MILES (4.340 KILOMETRE) JOURNEY.

    HERE ARE SOME OF THE CARS ARRIVING IN MONTE CARLO TODAY: FROM BELGIUM. CAR 164 DRIVEN BY BUANBHI AND OGIER. THIS CITROEN WAS ONE OF THE PARIS STARTERS.

    CAP NO. 97 WAS A GERMAN ENTRY DRIVEN BY SCHAEFER AND KARRER. THEY STARTED IN OSLO. THIS VOLVO WAS A PARIS STARTER BUT A DUTCH ENTRY. DRIVEN BY HUISMAN AND LINSCHOTEN.

    CAR NO. 147 WAS ANOTHER PARIS STARTER. IT WAS A FRENCH ENTERED PORSCHE DRIVEN BY BUCHET AND GAUVIN. AND FROM PARIS ALSO CAME THIS BRITISH ENTRY -- A MORRIS COOPER S-TYPE DRIVEN BY HARVEY AND CARDELL.

    CONDITIONS WERE SO GOOD THIS YEAR THAT THE RALLY FAVOURED THE MORE POWERFUL CARS. ERIC CARLSSON, WHO EXPERTS BELIEVE WILL ONCE MORE BE AMONG THE LEADERS -- HE WON THE PREVIOUS TWO RALLIES - SAID THAT HE THOUGHT HE HAD LOST SOME POINTS AND WAS NOT OPTIMISTIC OF SCORING A THIRD WIN.

    HIS WIFE, PAT MOSS, WHO LIKE HER HUSBAND WAS DRIVING A SWEDISH SAAB, SAID: "IT WAS VERY NICE, EXCEPT THAT THERE WAS NO SNOW." BUT SHE IS FAVOURED TO WIN THE LADIES PRIZE FOR THE FOURTH TIME.
