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.
