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!
