An A112 owner worked at the office these previous weeks to help me in my job...
I am willing to meet him again because we spoke a little about his Autobianchi. And of course I do want to have a ride abord to taste the atmoshere of this little car !
Anthony's dream is to race the MCH. For a begining, he races local rallyes with his improved A112.

"Trottinette" 's sister, I guess the race must feel funny aboard... But small cars like this one, should have their drawbacks when you struggle against the clock, don't they ?

As The Automobile Club de Monaco raise the year of manufacture limit up to 1985. Some "new" are allowed to race again. And I must say, nothing can spoil this great pleasure, nothing like a such snowy weather...

A what a day ! We saw plenty of action in the snow !
Monté Carlo Historique passed by the Vercors today. So we decided to climb to the Col d' Echarasson for watching teams struggling against average speed. 
A Z.R. was cancelated by the organisation because some snowy passes are closed by autorities. Due to very slippery roads many cars aborted the race today. We saw at least six crashes ! Luckyly nobody was hurted but every teams had to relie on spectator to get their car on the way again. Only one car was not able race anymore. The Pilot did not manage to keep his car on the way. His MG drived straight to a rock, bending a wing and brake an A-arm.
But fast cars made the show too... Pictures are following...

Two cars, two ways of passing by...

This Groupe3 Alpine A110 driven by the Russian FEDUTINOV Youri finished the raceat the 52th rank.

We were waiting the #41 Alpine because his pilot is used to have aspectacular driving. We were not disapointed, I must say. What a nice slide ! Just imagine the noise made by tortured tires...
Of course we will understand the exitation of the red devil sitting on your right shoulder when you are behind the wheel of that Groupe4 1800 Berlinette. Maybe the devil would jump nervously on your right foot ???
But Éric COMAS, the driver, finished on the very bottom of the classement (56th,last rank)
