Classic Car Comment  It‘s been a long wait, but fans of historic stage rallying will be out in force on the Roger Albert Clark Rally from Thursday 21 November - car 1 leaves Leominster at 16.01. Before the finish, five days later, the 140 crews will have to complete 300 stage miles before organising boss Colin Heppenstall sprays the champagne. Full route details and parking ticket prices at www.racrmc.org.

Classic Motorsport Retro-Fact  Introduced in 1954, the Swedish-produced Halda Speedpilot can be considered the first rallying computer. This compact dash-mounted instrument allowed the navigator to sleep while still providing the driver with three important facts; time, distance covered and, perhaps the most important innovation of all, average speed. In fact, when combined with a series of pre-written, hand-written route directions suitably placed in front of the driver, the co-driver became almost redundant. Almost.
