The rac­ing month in pic­tures, and more

Don’t be taken in by this pas­toral scene – even if it does in­clude a stick­ered-up Lan­cia Ful­via in the middle-dis­tance. The self-pro­claimed ‘tough­est rally in Europe’ started in dark­ness as 70mph winds bat­tered com­peti­tors, then ran the length of the Bri­tish main­land over some of the gnarli­est and tini­est, not to say wettest, roads in the coun­try. At least the crews fin­ished in sun­shine, some­thing hardly guar­an­teed for Scot­land in De­cem­ber.

Im­ages: Francesco & Roberta Ras­trelli
