Background: A three-man Australian team -- Andre Welinski, Ken Tubman and James Reddiex -- driving a French Citroen DS23 had a clear victory in the United Dominions Trust (U.D.T.) 11,000-mile (17,000 kilometre) 1974 World Cup Rally which ended in Munich on Saturday (25 May).
Second place and the Women's Prize went to Christine Dacremont and Yveline Vanoni, both of France, driving a Peugeot 504.
French Leams driving Peugeots also took third and fourth places. However, the team prize went to Citroen as the Peugeots had not been entered as a team.
Of the fifty nine original starters who set out from Wembley Stadium in London on 5 May, only nineteen were classified as finishers. But only five cars completed the entire gruelling trip, which took competitors from London to Spain, across the Sahara to Nigeria, back across the Sahara to Tunis, then through Italy, Greece, Turkey, Yugoslavia and Austria to Munich in West Germany.
