RALLYE SANREMO - RALLYE D'ITALIA (12-15 OCT.)
MITSUBISHI DRIVER MAKINEN
EXTENDS WORLD CHAMPIONSHIP
Team Mitsubishi Ralliart driver Tommi
Makinen has reinforced his lead in the 1997 World Rally
Championship after taking a hard-fought third place on
the Sanremo Rally, the 12th round of the series, in his
Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution. The 33-year-old Finn now
needs only 12 points from the last two rallies to become
World Rally Champion for the second year running, even if
he does not win. Mitsubishi dominated the Group N
production car category once more, taking the top three
places in the class.
