Toivonen to honour family aces
Harri Toivonen will celebrate the careers of his father Pauli and brother Henri by driving one of the course cars on the Avd-histo-monte, which starts in Mainz in Germany tomorrow (Thursday).
Toivonen will drive an Opel Kadett E GSI to mark the fact that Pauli won the Monte Carlo Rally 50 years and Henri won it 30 years ago. The four-day, 1000-mile regularity event will tackle famous Monte Carlo stages including the Col de Turini.
“It is a huge honour for me to drive on those famous roads down to Monte Carlo 50 years after my father’s and 30 years after my brother’s victory,” said Harri Toivonen.
