The run­ners-up this year were French en­trants Jean-Luc Hasler and Syl­vain Blon­deau, pi­lot­ing one of two Ford Es­cort RS2000s to fin­ish in the top 10. The Ital­ian team of Gian­maria Aghem and Diego Cu­mino bat­tled to third po­si­tion in their Lan­cia Ful­via Coupé. Span­ish en­trants An­to­nio Zanini and Carlo Bel­tran took part in this Porsche 911, en­tered by Barcelona-based clas­sic rac­ing spe­cial­ist Nou Onze Rac­ing. Jean Rag­notti was re­united with his Re­nault 5 Turbo – one of four cars en­tered by the French man­u­fac­turer’s her­itage divi­sion – on the ear­lier stages of the rally. Daniele Per­fetti Ron­nie Kes­sell, both from Switzer­land, were the vic­tors on this year’s event with their Alpine-Re­nault A110. It barely looks like it’s break­ing into a sweat here. Daniel Elena and Olivier Cam­pana man­aged a re­spectable 11th place in their Volk­swa­gen Golf GTI. An­other of the Ger­man hot hatches was 12th. Ranald White and Karsten Brown man­aged to get their 1964 Rover 2000 SC to the fin­ish suc­cess­fully – al­beit with a lit­tle ex­pert ad­vice from help­ful mem­bers of the Rover P6 Club.
