  • Description

    EXPERTS ARE PREDICTING THAT ERIC CARLSSON, OF SWEDEN, WILL BE AMONG THE FIRST SIX WHEN THE RESULTS OF THE ROAD SECTION OF THE MONTE CARLO RALLY ARE ANNOUNCED TOMORROW, (WEDNESDAY).

    CARLSSON WON THE RALLY IN 1962 AND 1963. OTHERS FAVOURED TO BE AMONGST THE LEADING DRIVERS IN THE ROAD SECTION INCLUDE PADDY HOPKIRK OF BRITAIN, EUGEN BOHRINGER OF GERMANY, AND JO SCHLESSER AND RENE TRAUTMANN OF FRANCE.

    OF THE 299 CREWS WHO SET OUT FROM NINE EUROPEAN CITIES ON FRIDAY NIGHT AND SATURDAY MORNING, ABOUT 178 WERE TONIGHT (TUESDAY), OFFICIALLY CLASSIFIED AS HAVING ARRIVED WITHIN THE STIPULATED TIME.

    THOUGH THERE WAS HARDLY ANY SNOW ANYWHERE IN EUROPE, AND MORE THAN 250 OF THE CREW REACHED THE COMMON ROUTE FROM RHEIMS TO MONTE CARLO, THE CLASSIFICATION TEST LAST NIGHT IN THE MOUNTAINS TOOK A HEAVY TOLL. THE TORTOUS ROADS, WITH MANY HAIRPIN BENDS, WERE FROZEN AND TRICKY.

    AFTER A DAY OF REST TOMORROW, THE 120 CREWS WITH THE BEST DRIVING RECORDS ON THE ROAD WILL TAKE PART IN THURSDAY'S DRIVE AROUND THE GRAND PRIX CIRCUIT IN MONTE CARLO TO DECIDE THE WINNER OF THE RALLY.
