Comments

The Calibra used for Rallye Monte Carlo differed from the car used in the fight for the Danish Championship. The actual car was the same, but at Rallye Monte Carlo an additional sponsor was present at the car: Morven Gold.

Morven Gold is a tobacco brand completely unknown in Denmark. But they have agreed to support Henrik Lundgaard and Freddy Pedersen at Rallye Monte Carlo. In return a TV-crew followed the team during the rally to produce a TV-program, which was later shown in Asia - especially at Indian TV-stations. Ironically that meant, that Indian television viewers knew much more about the two Danes Rallye Monte Carlo than Danish rallyfans. Because in Denmark the coverage of the rally was very limited.

It was the first time Henrik Lundgaard participated in a World Championship rally, but he an Freddy Pedersen did very well and they were on course for the best Danish result ever. But only two stages from the end they had to retire from 11th place with mechanical damage.

Comments

This model is built with OZ-racing rims replacing the rims in the kit. OZ-racing rims were used for rallying, but at the model they are mounted with a single center wheelnut, which is incorrect.
