Timo Makinnen and Paul Easter on ther way to a famous victory in the 1965 Monte Carlo rally.
The 9th Monte Carlo Historique rally is due to start in two days and all I can do is "spectate" through the Automobile Club de Monaco's website. Some great names of motorsport will be competing including Clay Regazzoni, Antonio Sainz (brother of Carlos), Yves Jouanny, Alain Lopes, Erik Comas to name but a few. A total of 352 crews in all. I feel really left out and you can expect a few rally reports and commentary over the next few days.
Oh and before you ask (and I'll say this very quietely) -Seattle is today enjoying brilliant sunshine and the temperature is a very pleasant 52°F.
