Regarding the obituary for Erich Waxenberger (News & events, October) Mercedes-benz did not win the World Cup Rally in the mid-’70s – it was won by a Citroën DS23, crewed by André Welinski, Ken Tubman and Jim Reddiex. Mercedes did win the Londonsydney Singapore Airlines Rally in 1977. I should know – I was heavily involved in both!
