RED FACE DEPARTMENT -In last month's story about the San Felipe 250, I talked about Rick Ellison and Bill Hemquist finishing in 10th place in Class 10. That was an error. They did not actually finish, although they came into town on the course, passing through the Tecate arch and in front of timing and scoring, giving some of us the impression that they were finishers. I should have checked the official finish list more closely. Sorry -Judy Smith AW ARD TIME - Eagle One, Carlsbad, CA will present the Eagle One-Shav Glick award to Parnelli Jones, recognizing distinguished achievement in motor racing by a Californian. For your information, Shav Glick has been heavily involved in reporting motor racing for the Los Angeles Times for many years and Pamelli has a list of records as long as·your arm in other forms of motor racing besides off-road. B ITD TERRIBLES TOWN 250 -Best in the Desert kicks off their racing season at Pahrump the first weekend in April and the turnout looks pretty good. Officially entered as of March 26 are 56 motorcycles and quads and 88 cars and trucks are all ready for the initial BITD competition. Look for the full story elsewhere in this issue of Dusty Times. MORE SCORE HENDERSON TERRIBLE 250 -For the first time in many years, SCORE has included motorcycles and quads in one of their US races. As usual, the bikes and quads will start at six in the morning but the cars and trucks will not leave the start line until 3pm. There will be an eight hour time limit on the race but the SCORE officials are forecasting a four hou~ run for the faster vehicles. Stay tuned! OVER THE TRANSOM -Many pe_ople don't r·ealize that Fox bought Speedvision last summer. Apparently, they'd had an option on the network for a long time. Since then, they've made lots of changes to the TV part, including a bunch more NASCAR coverage. A few weeks ago, Speedvision became Speed Channel. At the same time, Fox deleted a huge portion of the website. The Classic Car, Marine, Aviation and Automotive sections, and all the stories in them simply vanished. No archives, no mention of their removal, no nothing. Those areas seemed to be pretty popular, so that slick little move probably chased off a lot of people. Fox wasn't done though. For their next trick, the same geniuses set-up the new website so that you can't even get in unless you have version 5.0 or -newer of your internet browser. That swift move locked out probably half to two thirds of their totals potential market. On top of th_at, if you can get in, there isn't much to see. It looks as though the whole thing has been put together by one overworked guy, trying hard to keep up appearances. Good marketing, huh? Color us gone! FINAL FLAG - Ray Brock, former editor of Hot Rod and Motor Trend slipped away from us April 2. The following was sent to us by Bill Sanders.

and they all went on. Except Hovey, who somehow got trapped on the side of a long slippery slope. He couldn't go forward and he couldn't get himself unstuck. Those who saw him declared it would need a 4x4 to shake him loose. So there he sat for the duration. John A. and John R. Sunderland, a father and son team, brought their Explorer home in first place to take the win in the big SUV class (4100). At Mile 155 it was Herbst in the lead, followed by Lof-ton, then Castro and then Gaughan and Dean tied for fifth. Herbst's lead was three minutes there, but at Mile 218 it had grown to 10 minutes. ln the last stretch he admitted to "pushing a little" and he had a couple of flats, reducing his lead to five minutes.

Gaugh-an and Richardson also had no flats, but their suspension had gone away, and they were another 20 seconds back in fourth. In fifth it was Keith Cunningham who didn't stop to chat, saying he had "zero oil pressure" at the finish. Of the 27 starters, only eight failed to finish. Pat Dean was one of those. He had two flats at once and had only one spare. He changed one tire and tried to go on, only to get stuck. Gary Weyhrich came by and gave him a tire so he could go on, but then he broke a hub. He said this was the last race for this car anyway. And Weyhrich didn't have everything go his way. H e got distracted by the sight of Hovey hanging over the edge of the hill and slid off the road himself. He decided not to mimic Hovey, so he just drove on down and then tried to find his way out. It took a long time, and at one point the rocks were so big he and his passenger were using a ham-mer and a big screwdriver to reduce their size. He did get out, and finished, but was 15th, an hour and ten minutes in back of Herbst. The Protrucks went off that line next, with 10 starters. Greg Hansen didn't get any distance at all, but all the rest went at least through the first checkpoint. At that point it was Kevin McGillivray in the lead in his Chevy, with a minute on Tom Koch in his•Ford. Alan Hogan had his Ford in third place another two minutes back and then it was Rob Reinertson in yet another Ford, about six minutes behind him. When they reached Mile 94 it was a tie between McGillivray and Koch, and Hogan was still third, with Reinertson in fourth. But in the next section things changed a bit. While McGillivray held onto his lead, having no problems at all, Koch went into second and Hogan third, but John Becker put his Ford into fourth, while Reinertson dropped to fifth. They were still all very close. Chet Huffman's Ford was having a lot of flats, and ulti-mately he ran out of spares, and Dan hunt was a couple hours off the pace and had been looking for rod ends for his Chevy. Steve Sca-roni was also having a lot of fl<\;j:s on his Ford. For some reason McGillivray had fallen into a dust free pocket, and he was having a great day. He simply stayed out in front. At Mile 124 he had a minute on Koch's truck, and again it was Hogan in third and Becker in fourth. And at Mile 155 he'd built his lead to three minutes. Koch had got out and put Lee Patten in to finish the day, and they fell to third, with Reinertson in fourth place still. Hunt, who'd lost a brake line, had also burned up a wheel bearing and got stuck in the silt. This was his first desert race, and he was getting a lot of experi-ence. When they went through Check D McGillivray still had just three minutes and now it was Hogan in second place. Patten ran third and Reinertson was fourth. Huffman was done and so was Scaroni, both out of spares. Hunt still struggled, having a lot of flats on top of ev-erything else. • McQillivray successfully negoti-ated the spot near Check 7 that caught him and rolled him over and out of the race last year, and went on in good shape to the finish, where he declared "I redeemed my-self today!" Patten and Koch were second, Patten coming in with no left rear tire and a wheel worn down to just the center part. Hogan fin-ished third, but received a 15 minute penalty for an improper stop at a road crossing, which dropped him to fourth place. And Reinertson, who had some prob-lem with second gear that caused his truck to go into freewheeling, said he'd had to use the brakes a lot. He was happy with his newly upgraded brakes, reported only two flats, and took third. The Class 8 trucks were next to start and all but one of them sur-vived the first 81 miles.

The Yee brothers, fresh off a Class 10 victory at San Felipe, held their lead, and were five minutes in front of Ashcraft at the next check. Coneen was third two 111.inutes later, followed by Baldwin. These folks were having a lot of dust. Steve Strobel had moved up to fifth as Dizney and is crew and some new friends worh;d madly to replace a lot of parts damaged when he was rear-ended while stopped behind another race car at a road cross-ing.

It· took about three hours and 20 minutes to get it all together again. Meanwhile, everyone else went on. At the third check it was still the Yee team, and now they had seven minutes on Coneen, who was three minutes up on Baldwin. Ashcraft dropped to fourth and Strobel was still in fifth. Also run-ning was Jason Hunter who'd lost 20 minutes before the first check · and another two hours plus in this section. He'd replaced a clutch. Dick Weyhrich and Jim Zupanovich had long since broken their Penhall, and Jeff Shiroky and Kevin Colan didn't get any distance in their GB Defender either. In the next section most of the teams changed drivers. The Yees held their lead, apparently having. no problems at all. They were nine minutes in front of Bruckmahn, who was also not having any trouble, and in fact, was having a lot of fun. Baldwin was third, en-joying the course, but finding it very dusty. And Jesse Ashcraft had taken over for Danny and ran fourth. Strobel was another half hour down in fifth, and two hours be-hind him came Scott Webster in Dizney's car, followed by Hunter. The Yees held onto the lead, and at Mile 218 they had 12 minutes on Bruckmann. He was trying hard to catch them, but was a bit handi-Kevin Davis moved his Ford up through the ranks to finish in first place in Class 7100 (7S) with over two hours to spare. capped by the fact that h e had the SCOR E Lite suspension. The Ashcraft car moved u p to th ird as Baldwin lost 45 minutes somehow, and Strobel was still fifth. At Pit #7, near Johnnie, and only about 30 miles from the finish, the Yees pulled off the course. Bruck-mann never saw them again, and he and Coneen went on to take the win. Ashcraft, who drove with no power steering for the last 80 miles or so, brought the car back in sec-ond place. Baldwin moved up to third, followed in two minutes later by Strobel. Dizney and Webster, who'd had one late flat, were fifth. Hunter came in two hours later in sixth pl~ce, and the Yees didn't get to the finish line. The Class 7200 (Class 7) trucks went off the line next, and Shawn Wanzek put his Ford into the lead at the first check, with about two minutes on Jason Jernigan in an-other Ford. Behind them it was Rick Taylor, still another Ford, and then Gary Dircks in, you guess it, a Ford, ran fourth. Taylor and Dircks had both already lost time; Taylor was down a good half hour and Dircks was an hour off the pace due to an ignition problem. Jernigan went into the lead by the next check and put seven min-utes on Wanzek. Behind thei11 Tay-lor and Dircks was a half hour be-hind him.

Esquerra got about nine minutes on Hayley also, and came up to third place. Hayley had a brake line problem. At Check E Hall was back in front, and was four minutes to the good. Merritt had over a half hour on Esquerra, and then ca1:ne Hay-ley and the Pikes. Hall then went on trouble free to take the win, while Merritt had to stop briefly at the last pit for some repair. He fin-ished second about 33 minutes down. Hayley came up to finish third, while Esquerra finished with a tow strap still tied to his front end, apparently having had some serious problem right at the end of things. He didn't wan_t to hang around and talk about it. In fifth place it was the Pikes, who said they had "just cruised". They're think-ing of running the June Nevada 1000, and were looking at this race as a sort·of practice run. Foutz sttaggled in two hours later, getting an unusual sixth place. There were only two 1600 bug-gies in this event, and they were next off the line. Right off the bat they had to work their way through all those full sized trucks, a major handicap for the buggies, who should probably have been started in front of them. Kevin Graves and Joe Hammer led all the way in their Joe-Co, while Cortney, Calvin and Wesley Whipple, in a Fraley, ran almost identical times except for the first stretch, where they lost "a half hour-or so" by setting the car up on its side. They got the roof all dented, but apparently did no damage to the running gear. Ham-mer and his co-driver, Kevin Graves, had no trouble and no flat tires.and won by 34 minutes. The Whipples had two flats in addition to their upset. The 7100 trucks (7S) started next, with eight entries.

Vinje, who has just finally got his truck back together after a highway accident on the way to last year's Vegas to Reno race, was glad to be back rac-ing. (The race truck was seriously damaged, but none of Malcolm's family or ere~ were injured.) At Check D the lead belonged to Davis, who was having no prob-lems at all. He now had 26 minutes on Braden and Griffin, who were losing belts. All told they tossed three power steering belts, two al-ternator belts and a timing belt. This was the first time out for their truck, and they said, "It's going to be a nice truck." Alvarado held steady in third. They r~n in the same order through Check E, but in the final section as Davis took the victory, Alvarado moved up to second place while Griffin and Braden dealt with that final belt. They took third place. The big SUVs, Class 4100, went off the line next. There was a total of six, including one Hummer and five Fords, and they almost all made it back to the finish line. Marc Stein had the lead early in his Expedi-tion, with three minutes on Scott Douglas, in a Bronco. In third it was John R. and John A. Sunderland, in another Bronco. Douglas, who's been racing in the midwest for years, hadn't competed Presents The in a desert event for a long time. Matt Scaroni had his Excursion stuck in the silt, and Rod Hall broke a front shock on his Hummer. Stein stayed in front through the second check, still followed by Dou-glas and the Sunderlands. And he was still there through the third check, although now the Sunderlands moved up to second as Douglas lost abut 10 minutes. Hall was moving steadily again, but had about an hour and a half defi-cit to make up. At the fourth check, Mile 155, while Stein still led, the Sunderlands were.within 12 minutes and Hall was third, although an hour and 20 minutes down. Douglas lost over an hour when he ran out of gas. Tommy Watson was now in the Scaroni ·Excursion, and it was his turn to get stuck in the silt for a while. The Sunderlands moved into the lead by the fifth check, as Stein and his co-driver, Mike McComas, lost their front differential, in ad-dition to having five flat tires. Hall was still third, and Douglas was fourth, with the Excursion fifth and in a very distant sixth place it was Dale Chestnut of Wisconsin, in an elderly Bronco. He made a game try of it but ran out of time. The Sunderlands, who had no flat tires, had to fix their power steering a couple of times and broke their suspension four miles from the finish, bur took the win with a half hour to spare.

51st UDDEHOLM SWEDISH RALLY Peugeot Wins Third consecutive Swedish Rally-By Martin Holmes Photos: Maurice Selden Marcus Gronholm and Timo Rautiainen fly through the snow in their Peugeot 206 to a beautiful first overall at the 51st Swedish rally. Peugeot won the 2002 Swedish Rally for the third successive time, and were within eight second;, of a 1-2-3 victory as well! A broken wheel for Colin McRae mid-way through the event removed Page 20 the last of the realistic hopes of defeat for Peugeot, who have moved ahead of Ford and Su-baru in the World Champion-ship hunt. It was left to McRae's Ford teammate Car-los Sainz, who scored his sixth podium finish in seven Swed-ish rallies, to beat off a last day charge by World Champion Richard Burns. Both official Subarv's and two of the three works Hyundai's retired on an event in which there was a high May 2002 Kristian Sohlberg and Jukka Aho took the Production honors in their Mitsubishi Lancer Evo and they were 24"' overall. percentage of finishers, and it was heartbreak for Skoda when Kenneth Eriksson's engine failed on the final stage of the rally, and he was fifth overall! Kristian Sohl berg· was the new Production Car World Rally Championship winner in a Mitsubishi and victory in the Group N category went to Daniel Carlsson, on the final stage. This was the second round of 14 for the 2002 FIA World Rally Championship and the first of eight for the Produc-tion Car Championship. The new Production Car World Rally championship supersedes the old Productioh Cup. The series is still for drivers com-peting in Group N cars but new for 2002 is the require-ment that drivers had to regis-ter with the FIA. The series will run on the eight events in the 1nain series, not counting for the Super 1600 Junior Cham-. pionship and the drivers had to nominate which six of the eight events they would be eli-gible. Of the 26 drivers regis-tered for the series, 15 entered this specialist event, all but one in Mitsubishis. Outside of the PWRC, there were a fur-ther 23 crews competing in the Swedish Rally h,.Group N se-ries. There· were 86 entries, less than the maximum of 90 al-lowed so there was no need to initiate the FIA's entry selec-tion process. There 19 works entries, three works approved cars and four second priority cars.

Although the ground was hard, it was only the week before the rally that the snow really started falling. There was one completely new stage (#10) and all the other stages were slightly different regarding lengths. Following the fiasco at Monte Carlo, Citroen with-drew their appeal, which meant the official winner was Tommi Makinen on his debut appear-ance with Subaru, but Citroen had claimed their brie.f mo-ment of success. Subaru was in good spirits, they had last won that event in 1997 and they wete Makes Champion that year. There were mixed pre-rally fortunes for Ford. Colin McRae was frustrated because there was no snow at his pre-Swedish test. The next day the snow arrived and Markka M ar-tin had a lot of unexpected opportunities to drive the -car. T hen, as Sainz was just about-to end his testing period he destroyed the car in a collision with an Elk. Peugeot's official ~ team swapped Fanizzi for Ro-vanpera. Skoda had Stig Blomqvist and Hyundai had Juha Kankkunen ready for a shot at the win and Freddy Loix was cleared medically to drive his Hyundai. There was a high concentra-tion of Group N cars entered, the first world event on which they were admitted this year, and many of them were priva-teer entries. On no other event in the championship is the weather so important. Ten days before the event there was no snow on the ground although the ground was frozen hard. The official forecast for one week before the event was for snow and cold conditions. This duly arrived and from then on it was a race against time for the organizers to have the stages ready for the official start of the reconnaissance on the 28th of January. On to ·shakedown runs there were some unfortunate incidents. Gardemeister went into a snow bank and every-thing stopped for a while 'til they got his car towed back.

., Alister McRae and David Senior drove hard in their Mitsubishi Lancer Evo, resulting in a nice S'h place finish. Sebastien Loeb and Daniel Elena drove their Citroen Xsara to a sort of disappointing t]'h place in Sweden. Kenneth Eriksson throws a huge wake of snow, unfortunately he retired his Skoda with engine problems. vice after two stages he was run-ning 22nd, one place i:n front of Loeb, who had started sec-ond. Granholm led, running fifth on the road. As the cars passed by they were cleaning off the snow, a definite advantage for those following. Solberg had trouble with a switch, which cut off the hydraulics on his Suba-ru on Stage 1. Garde-meister found his Skoda diffi-cult to handle in the clearing snow and on -d1e second stage Radstrom spun backwards into a ditch. Janne Tuchino's Fo-cus was laying fourth, the first of the non-factory cars. On Stage 3, the conditions were still heavily against the front running ·cars. Makinen was 19th after Stage 3 and Rovan-pera took over the lead from Granholm. Then Makinen went off the road and suffered tenninal overheating, snow packed into the cooling ducts. Duval spun, lost half a minute, Radstrom made best time for Stage 4 but like all the others, suffered from bad light and low visibility on Stage 5 . Burns hit a snow bank and after extricating himself he had to remove all the snow fro1n the air inlets, costing him a minute or so and Loeb lost about three minutes in a si1ni-lar situation and Radstrom lost about seven 1ninutes shov-eling his car out of a bank. Solberg slowed with a bad vi-bration, Gardemeister's Skoda was losing power and Tuchino fell back when his tires started overheating. Blomqvist slid-off the road and lost a bit of time and up front, the running was close, from third to 12th place was just 8.5 seconds sepa-ration. Loix was moving fast, even with his broken foot, Granholm had the wrong tires and Rovanpera also had ice tires 1nounted, a correct choice for the later runners. Gran-holm got a 4.1 second advan-tage over his teammate on the final stage of the day and this put him .9 seconds ahead at the end 0f the leg. Colin McRae had snow tires, made third fastest time on Stage 4 and fastest on Stage 5. Rich-ard Burns spun and stalled three times getting going again. Both Delecour and Schwarz lost time off the road and Lol}( was up to fifth. The visibility was getting worse, Loeb was struggling with bad handling (29th place), Schwarz was 35th and Delecour was 67th out of 69 cars still running. Only five cars had retired so far. In Group N, the local driv-ers, who were seeded near the back of the field, were consid-erably faster than the better seeded championship drivers. Fastest championship driver on Stage 1 was Arai in his old model Impreza 555, quite good for his first rally on stud-ded tires and for the only non-Mitsubishi in the category. On the second stage Kristian Schlberg got ahead in his· Mit-subishi. Markko Ipatti was go-ing well, as was Martin Rowe, on his first winter event. Alex Fiorio was third and Gustavo Trelles was fifth on his first winter rally in three weeks: On the long Stage 3, Schlberg extended his lead, Trelles fell back after going off the road and lpatti was having throttle response problems, Joakim Roman went off the road for three minutes and de Domin.ids was struggling with a broken rear suspension. Leg 2 -Six stages, gravel, 129kms. At the end of Leg 1, the officials faced the chore of deciding the starting order for the second day, taking account of the new reverse seeding or-der system. They had to select 15 drivers, there were 15 driv-ers eligible for manufacturers points still in the event bu_t the officials decided not to con-sider Schwarz or Delecour and included Duval and Lindholm into the mix. Presumably the Citroens were not considered, as the_y were not eligible for Makes points. Citroen had to change the turbo . on Radstrom's car, which led to time penalties and dropped . him down in the running or-der among the Group N cars. Loeb's car underwent a com-plete overhaul at service and ran a lot better. The first stage was a repeat of the 40km stage from the day before but the conditions were different. The day was wanner, the snow melted but the gravel was still 51st Uddelholm SWedish Rafty 1/3.02.2002 Karlstad (S) WC round 2, Production round 1 1 (2) Marcus GRONHOLM/T"imo Rautlainen FIN Peugeot 206 2 (3) Harri ROVANPEIWRistO Pletilainen FIN Peugeot 206 3 ( 4) Carlos SAINZ/Luis Moya E Ford Focus RS 4 (1) .

Colin McRae, running 13th made best time, surprisingly, as he had snow tires mounted. Granholm inched a bit further ahead of Rovanpera and Paasonen dropped from fourth to Sl}(th when he stalled the engine. Kankkunen lost time when hydraulic pressure failed, but the 1nain shock was the retire-ment of Solberg with a me-chanical engine failure, erid of the Subaru challenge. Both Paasonen and McRae da1naged wheels on stones hidden in the deepening ruts, costing about three 1ninutes. Paasonen struggled to reach the stage end while McRae was forced to stop and change the wheel. Eriksson flew on Stage 8 and scored second fastest ti1ne in his Skoda. Radsttom overcame the problem of runni1~g with the slower cars by checking into a control 17 minutes early. Colin McRae's broken wheel took away any sense of opposition to the two leading Peugeots and as Granholm continued with unabated ·speed at the head of the rally and Rovanpera eased off to de-fend his second place position,. it seemed the Team orders had already been given. Condi-tions were unpleasant as night approached, Stage 11 being particularly bad with heavy lay-ers of fog. Gardemeister crashed into retirement six kms after the start of the final stage. Sahlberg pulled ahead in the Production category until he hit a bank and slowed hi.m down, but he still finished 14.8 in front of Arai. Fiorio had passed Rowe and Ipatti to finish the day in third place. Trelles changed the front cliff and was handling better. Sahlberg once again made fast-est time of the championship contenders and Ipatti fell be-hind Trelles due to tire heat. Ipatti changed his tires ·and started going better: Arai was having shock trouble and couldn'y challenge Sahlberg. Rowe was having gearbox troubles.

In the overall Group N battle Walfridsson led from tl~ start and the local drivers were well ahead of the cham-pionship cars in overall classi-fication. He then had elec-tronic troubles and stopped for a while on Stage 8. Backlund had a high speed spin and by mid afternoon Kangas was ahe;id but Daniel Carlsson was pushing hard, only 4.1 seconds behind a-r day's end. Leg 3 • Four stages, gravei, -105kms. There were two crises the organizers had to deal with on the final day. First, the fuel problem, there had been so few retirements.there was a possi-bility that the official FIA fuel suppliers might not have enough fuel to last the event. Of the 7.5 cars that had started, only 14 had retired. Secondly, the weather continued to get ·warmer and there were now serious worries about the con-ditions of the stages. On Stage 13 the cars had worn the track through into the gravel and had started to break up the ice covering and there was· serious doubt that an ambulance would be able to reach the scene of any accident which might occur due to the muddy conditions. So Stage 13 was canceled and the fuel people breathed a bit easier. There was again difficulty understanding the running order, the non-of-ficial driver Sebastian Lindholm was among the "Privileged 15" while Schwarz and Delecour _were not. And Citroen, not entitled to n~anu-facturers points saw Loeb sent away first car while Radstrorn was outside the 15. Cal)celed stages are bad news· for drivers wanting to catch up after earlier misfortunes, like Colin McRae who felt there was a chance he could work his way into some manufacturers points and for Richard Burns who was aiming to give Peu-geot a 1-2-3 finish. So the day started on Stage 12 and the rest of the day's route was un-c :iange . Burns pu e a ea of Loix into fourth place, so only Sainz prevented the Peu-. geot hat trick. Schwarz had hydraulic pressure problems and on the following road sec-don he withdrew. No sooner had the 14th stage got under-way than Loix was out with sus-pension failure. Bad news for Hyun~ai but it meant that Colin McRae, after passing Kankkune·n in the third Hyun-dai was in the points for Ford. With only the final long stage to go, Sainz was still 12.5 sec-onds ahead of Burns. Kenneth Eriksson retired with radiator damage. The loss of Skoda meant that Hyundai, through the efforts of Kankkunen, came back into the points. It was a fight for fifth place, won .by Tuch.ino, in front of both the McRae brothers. Then, Tuchino volunteered to leave service one 1ninute late in his Ford Focus (IO second pen-alty), dropping him from fifth to seventh, giving an ad-ditional championship point to Alister McRae and a point also to Colin. Beating the works team drivers at their own game is never a bad move for an aspiring rally driver. In the overall Group N category, Carlsson inched closer to the leader with each ~tage, 4.9 seconds after Stage 12, 1.8 after 14, and just one second q_ehind with_ one stage to go. Svedlund, lying fifth in Group N ·went off the road and on the final stage Walfridsson retired with en-gine failure. For Carlsson, who in 2001 finished seventh, the highest placed privately owned car, this was a drea1n win.Just one week before the rally he decided not to run in his Evo VII because it was not ready. At the last mo1nent, some friends offered him their car and he took if to with no damage to the vehicle. In the Production champi-onship, Schlberg maintained his lead of 45 seconds over Arai. Ipatti was awarded a one 1ninute penalty which was later reversed. Granholm leads the Drivers points with 12, Makinen 10, Sainz 8, Loeb and Rovanpera 6 and McRae 4.

The Doo Wop ClubRally Series traditionally opens the rally season for the Northwest Region of the Sports Car Club of America. Starting in the historic Washington seaport of Hoquiam and running along the Pacific shore to the fast forest roads of the Quinault Indian Nation, the Doo Wop concludes with the famous dash from the Brooklyn Tavern over the ridge tops to the Oakville Grange.

J ardevall and Trowbridge may have been stuck in last place, but they have a specia l relationship with the road from Brooklyn, and there was a lot of anticipation that Choiniere's record run of 6:42 might fall. The Nordic Motors Evo flew up t.he hill and over the ridge top, but l_ost a few seconds slowing for a washout, and a few more on the slippery new gravel going downhill to the finish.

As the Score Baj a · 5 00 approaches, so does Mag 7's timetable to get ready. We are running nine pits, one every 50 miles ( + or -five miles for pit accessibility) for the 500 this season. As is usual at this time of year, there are generators and welders to check. Light bulbs to turn on, dump cans to clean and pit boxes to put in order. Since the Score Mailer came out two weeks ago, applications have been coming in for this year's Baja 500. For me, this is especially important, it will be my first race of the decade with Score. And my first race on a vintage bike as 'Well. I'll see all of you at the finish line when it is over. The Mag 7 Race Team was offered a chance to pit the Nevada 1000 with BITD. As much as I wanted our team to go, our pit captains said different. Moving from pit to pit for two days and taking off another week of work this year wasn't in the taking. The Baja 1000 pits are already planned and most guys only get 1-2 weeks off a year, if that. Before going on, I wish to offer an apology to one of our guys. It seems that I received information at the San Felipe 250 that wasn't quite true. I spoke of Kevin Walsh supporting our team. In reality, Kevin does an excellent job as our 'Webmaster and happened to be sponsored by BFG for the SF 250. So I offer my apology to you Kevin for any bad feelings caused by my comments. · Back to the Baja 1000 now, our plans are underway for that race now. Mag 7 is planning o n 5 0 mile pits ( + or -five miles 'for pit accessibility) from start to finish. That should be 20-22 pits, depending on terrain and location. As is usual, May 7 'Will be running 76 Race ·Fuel our Baja distributor. That would be Bill "Merno" Rodriguez. Mag 7 will be offering both 92 Octane and 110 Octane. This will be for both the Baja 500 and the Baja 1000 races. At the same time, we have been in discussion with Carlos Orozco and Carl Augustine of Baja pits Race Team. Bill Rodriguez of Baj a Pits himself brought us together for a meeting last month in March. Carlos ca1ne to our monthly Mag 7 meeting and presented his team to us, along with history and the mission of Baja Pits. (It must be noted that Baja Pits and Pro Pits of Baja are t'Wo very different teams.) At the Baja 2000, Mag 7 has a major misunderstanding with Pro Pits of Baja, a Tijuana based race team. So we were a bit cautious Dusty Times

Page 41

when Carlos came to our monthly meeting last month in March. However, by the end of the meeting, all that attended the meeting that night would probably agree that Carlos made an impressive speech about the Baja Pits Race Team., and that our memory of Pro Pits should be just that, a very distant memory. So with that knowledge., Mag 7 again met with Carlos Orozco and Carl Augustine in El Cajon this month to discuss ways on how our two teams would split up duties, fees,· fuel, radio communications, pits and spares. The pit organization that Baja Pits has in Baja Norte and Sur is simply amazing. Pre-positioned welders and pit equipment scattered down the peninsula along with help from all seven race teams based out of La Paz. A radio relay system that mirrors what BFG offers their racers, and a trucking system that delivers fuel barrels before the race starts to all pits. Unlike the Baja 2000, Mag 7 will only run 76 fuel in two octanes, 92 and 110. In the 2000, we took on four fuel companies with seven octanes altogether. Way too confusing at times for our pit crews to· deliver with 100% accuracy. We did it, but the strain was heavy with that cask. So for this year as we did in 2001, we will run only 76 Race fuel in those two octanes. I ·would like to take this time to thank our sponsors who made racing a possibility for us.· In no certain order of importance they are SKS Valvo line and Jim Arbuckle, GPR Products with Randy Norman, Juice Designs with Curtis Guise, Off Road Warehouse with John Brindell and Rudy, Industrial Liquidators with Michael Graham, IMS Products with Steve, DeWalt Tools with Andy Pina from Encompass and Red-D-Arc Welding • with Jeff Berry.

too wide on a corner. As the rains came, Ferreyros took an extra spare wheel and tire on board (permitted in Group N) so he could change to west between Stages 4 and 5. By then, however, it was Stage 4 where it was raining and it had stopped on Stage 5. He still held his lead but it was down to 1.1 seconds. Manfrinato changed a flat and then went off· the road and out of the event while the only other Production Cup re-ti re men t was De Dominicis, whose car caught fire at the end of the third stage. Leg 2 -Seven stages, asphalt, 149kms. The same conundrum faced the teams as before. What was the running order going to be under the new system? Policy was becoming more de-fined, running in reverse order were not just the top 15 Makes champion-ship cars, but the top 15 Priority 1 drivers, which meant all the manufac-turer entered cars plus the manufacturers ap-proved entries as well, so we saw Thiry restart third on the road in his Bastos Team Peugeot and Duval in the fourth Focus in fourth place, each be-hind the two remaining Hyundais. Rain was in Dusty Times the air, and during the long first stage condi-tions changed, from half way through the stage to rain for the whole way, for the leading cars. Few drivers felt they had the best tires for the occa-sion, but Subaru was happy, first and second on the stage, Makinen pulling ahead of Burns into third place. Loix was slow and Gardemeister said he had no grip at all. Schwarz and Eriks-son both spun and Mord's Peugeot came to an· abrupt stop in the middle of the track with transmission failure. Getting tires to work in the rain continued to be the challenge. Bugal-ski stated to be happy with the Citroen and began to climb up the field. Solberg fell back, suspecting a shock prob-lem and both Panizzi and Burns reported brake fade on their Peu-geots on Stage 9. Stages 7 -9 formed a loop and these were repeated for 10-12. The rain moved around and sometimes the clouds came down to ground level. On Stage 10, Makinen was out, af-ter yet another accident on this island, this time aquaplaning into a rock wall. This was his third successive Corsica that ended in a crash. Mar-tin was going carefully but stalled on a corner when the master switch turned itself off. Solberg had a flat on the final stage and Gronholm was going better. In Production Group N Trelles lost about nine minutes stopped on Stage 6 with a differen-tial electronic problem and this dropped him from fourth to eighth. For the Group N cars it was raining all the way on Stage 6. Ferreyros left service with two interme-diates, two dries and two spare intermediates. He changed these round be-fore the stage and pulled 18 seconds out on Al Waihaibi, who had driven slowly to the end of the stage after sliding into a wall, but still safely in second place. The loop of Stages 7-9 was the time for Ferreyros' big attack, but he need not have bothered as Al Waihaibi threw it all away. After 8kms on Stage 9 he spun off the road and lost six min-utes, then 8kms from the end he cut a turn too sharply and damaged the steering. Driving towards the service park he broke a wheel and was now trying to reach the control on time. He got as far as the en trance road when the car Lifting the left rear wheel, the Loix/Smeets Hyundai Accent heads to a ninth pace finish at Corsica. lurched sideways into a boulder, bringing the car to its final rest.

The sun can'le out at last but the roads were still damp, es-pecially on the northern side of the hills where the sun had not yet reached. With a buffer building up behind them, the Peugeots were comfortable in their po-sition. Gronholm stated there was no hope of catching Panizzi. Colin started the day five sec-onds behind Bugalski and made fastest time on the first stage. Panizzi and Gronholm were eas-ing their pace. Burns felt his brakes going soft on the long downhill on Stage 14. Bugalski said his Citroen felt like a rear drive car on Stage 13, and this let McRae up to fourth. The Mitsubishi's were still not competitive, in the Hyundai camp, Loix's brakes were unstable and Schwarz had excessive tire wear on Stage 13.

logging best time on the last stage. The Production Car Championship category leader Ferreyros was go-ing steadily, aware that there was a lot of mud on the road surfaces by now. Rowe was aston-ished at the way the stages seemed to get ever more twistier, easing his pace to cool his brakes and tires and he was aware that his shocks were seizing up. Roman was continuing well as he could in Ferreyros recce car, while Kollevold was finally having a clear run, not having to drive behind a two wheel drive local driver. Baldini was the ninth and last driver re-maining, still suffering from brake troubles. Panizzi was de°Iighted, not just to gain his fourth World Rally win, but because he was able to hold his own and pull ahead in the rain. Ferreyros went on to score an impressive de-but victory in the cat-egory for Mitsubishi and as the teams packed up to leave the island, the sun started to shine. _ _.· ...

Duval rolled four times off the stage, the cause, a fiat tire with the mousse not working correctly. On the final lap of the mountains, for Stages 15 and· 16, came Colin's second major accident on this event in three years. Lying just seven seconds ahead of Bugal-ski after 5kms of Stage 15, he found unexpected mud lying on ·a lefr hand corner and this thre~ him off line for the en-suing right hander. His Ford ·Focus heavily im-pacted on a tree, collaps-ing the roll cage into the steering wheel. Colin had a slight concussion and an injured finger. The stage was stopped after Granholm had passed, and before Panizzi which immedi-ately threw into question what to do with the stage, and how could the interruption rule be fairly applied.

In the late 70's, Ro met and married his soulmate, Joanie and together they enjoyed over 20 years of good times and happiness. Ro's funeral was April 11. Ro and Jean Calvin were good friends and they're probably having a few gin martini's upstairs and talking about the good old days. We'll miss your gravelly voice Ro, but we know you're in good hands.
