Round 8 of the ‘91 World Rally Championship saw Lancia’s bid for major honours intensify, in their attempt to stop the irrepressible Carlos Sainz in his Toyota Celica GT4. The Spaniard’s race however was prone to disaster. As early as the 4th stage he had a puncture; by the end of it the wheel was destroyed and his turbocharger had failed. Lancia’s Didier Auriol and Miki Biasion meantime held onto the first two places. Sainz fought back and the three remained in close contention, a mere 8 seconds dividing the leading pair! Watch out for a quite spectacular arrival onto the victory ramp at the end of a superb contest!
