In this week's Motorsport News (or as everbody still calls it..Motoring News!)  continuing their rally driver profiles there's a two
page feature on Miki Biasion. Great insight into the running of the Lancia team under Cesare Fiorio and a few nice photos.

 Elsewhere in the paper there is an obituary to Pentti Airikkala who died last week after a year long battle against cancer.
He was only 64.

I remember seeing the adverts for his Left Foot Braking school and thinking 'I would love to have a go at that'. He also used to own an
integrale, a very low mileage 8V I think, which he offered for sale a few years back. I wonder what ever happened to it?

Very sad news

One of the names of my youth, piloting rally cars (I associate him with the Chevette HSR) through Sutton Park in the RAC whilst a deeply excited 'and not cold at all' young kid watched goggle eyed.  Pentti - you gave it plenty...
