Along the country roads, they stopped at several [...]

The world’s northernmost rally for historic motorcycles


Wet, cold, windy and absolutely amazing!! The Finnmark event is always held last weekend in June, and this time no exception. This year the event was held in Mehamn, at N71,2 north. This is about as far north you can go with an ordinary vehicle and from what we know, the northernmost event for historic vehicles.

In Gamvik, the first stop was at Slettnes lighthouse, established in 1905, the [...]

Paykan & Iran


The 1960s was an era of industrial development in Iran. One of the lynchpins of government planning of the period was to establish an indigenous automotive industry. After several fitful starts, including an unsuccessful venture with FIAT, a virtual revolution took place when, in 1966, the Iranian company Iran National, a licensee of Mercedes Benz buses, branched into passenger car manufacturing. The founders of Iran National, Ahmad Khayami and his brother Mahmoud, after negotiating with numerous international manufacturers, concluded an agreement with the Rootes Group for the CKD (Complete Knock Down) assembly of the Hillman Hunter. The contract also provided [...]

His co-driver for many years was Christian Geistdörfer. His Fiat 131 Abarth carried him to the 1980 title, clinched with his victory in that year’s San Remo rally, but it was arguably his equivalent success in 1982 that impressed most of all, with Röhrl fending off audacious four-wheel drive opposition, led by Audi.
