Win one of five books on the 1970 World Cup RallyWed, 19 May 2010
The new June 2010 issue of CAR Magazine kicks off our Supercar World Cup. To coincide with this summer's football tournament, we've launched a tournament of our own – a festival of fast, featuring 2010's most exciting supercars, with everything from the Ferrari 599 GTO to the Aston Martin One-77, with twin tests of the Veyron and SV, and LFA and SLS in between.
But we’re also celebrating one very special anniversary. Forty years ago Mini legend Paddy Hopkirk and advertising mogul Wylton Dickson hatched a plan to create an intercontinental rally to tie-in with the 1970 FIFA World Cup. And today the Daily Mirror World Cup Rally still stands as the longest, highest and toughest rally ever, starting at Wembley and ending 16,000 miles later in Mexico.
You can read the full story in CAR's new June 2010 issue, and if you want even more information then you can find it in Graham Robson’s fabulous, definitive new book – Robson was part of the 1970 organising team. CAR has five copies of The Daily Mirror World Cup Rally 40 – The World’s Toughest Rally in Retrospect to give away, so click here for your chance to win the 208-page hardback book.
