RS10: 1-2 for Porsche, ahead of Saby!

The 26th Rallye Monte-Carlo Historique had not seen such a domination by German manufacturers until this Monday morning in RS10: Porsche took the honour of a one-two finish between Laborel and Montauban sur l’Ouvèze (19.7km), and four other German cars made it into the Top 7.

The start of this RS was set up in front of the Monte Carlo Rally Museum, created from scratch by a fan of the event as well as a keen collector, who has amassed a wealth of memorabilia over the years. Not to mention the fact that the village of Laborel goes out of its way to decorate its square every time an ACM event passes through.

Behind the two Porsches tied for 1st place in this RS10, the blue 911 turbo of Spaniards Alvaro Ochagavias Temino and Manuel Macho Gomez, number 4, and the 924 of Luc and Louis Dumas, number 118, we saw the divine surprise appearance of the Ford Capri of Bruno Saby and Denis Giraudet: it was bound to retire on Sunday until its mechanics worked miracles by repairing its transmission.

Behind this remarkable trio, the places of honour went to four other German cars: two other Porsches, a 911 and a 924, an Opel Kadett GTE and even an Audi 80 GLE entered by a Belgian crew, Jean-Pierre Vannerum and Nicolas Plas. All in all, 6 places in the Top 7 of this stage, which took place entirely in the Drôme Provençale region of France. With all the windows down to make the most of the spring-like weather.
