    Background: VARIOUS AND MONTE CARLO, MONACO

    Walter Rohrl, the world drivers' champion, from West Germany, achieved his second successive win in the Monte Carlo rally on January 28. For Rohrl, appropriately driving car number one, it was a spectacular victory in his first event back with the Italian Lancia team. He won with a total time lost of seven hours-58 minutes-and-57 seconds, nearly seven-minutes better than his team mate, Markku Alen of Finland in car number four. In third place was the Swede, Stig Blomqvist, in an audi Quattro (car number eight). The domination of the Lancias came as something of a surprise as the four-wheel-drive of the Audis was expected to give them a great advantage in the snow. The Opel of the former world champion Ari Vatanen of Finland (number three) carried him to fifth place. Despite some dramatic car control, Bruno Saby in car number fourteen did not make it to the first six, but Finland's Henri Toivonen in Opel number six just managed to get on the leader board with a time lost of eight-hours-15-minutes-54 seconds. The French driver, Jean Claude Andruet, in number seven, was the fastest of the Lancias over the Turini section near the Italian border, shattering the section record by nearly a minute. But despite this fine display, it was his team-mate Walter Rohrl who took the main honour of the event when he crossed the finishing line, and for whom the champagne at the leaders' reception tasted the sweetest.
