Product Review Taken From Four Small Wheels Magazine weight 1.5 kg by Graham Robson
The London-Sydney rally in 1968 was intended to be the ultimate endurance event but for many things went rather too smoothly and a greater challenge was needed! In 1970, Mexico was hosting the football World Cup and so an event was devised which started at the venue of the previous final, Wembley, and finished in Mexico City in time for the start of the new championship. The first leg was a five day run through France, West Germany, Hungary, Yugoslavia, Bulgaria, Italy, Spain and Portugal before the cars were loaded onto a ship for the voyage to Rio de Janiero two weeks later. Then the real tough stuff started with a further thirteen days of competition through the varying terrain of sixteen South American countries. The event attracted the top works teams with the best drivers and 106 cars were entered, only 96 took the start and of these only 26 made it to the end. In total 16,000 miles were covered making it an even longer distance event than the Dakar and the author had a unique insight as one of the event officials, jumping from flight to flight to try and stay ahead of the competitors. The book is illustrated with a huge number of excellent event photographs, the majority of which are in colour.
