Historic Rally Monte Carlo 2004

    Recommended Posts

    The Historic Rally Monte Carlo is over, from the 351 starters, only 276 finished.

    If you want to know how many Datsun’s took part and finished….

    Have a look at http://www.acm.mc/acm/index.html for the whole event.

    For a quick answer look at The Victory Lane

    Former works Datsun driver Tony Fall was again at the scene.

    Sorry Victor,

    Cannot help you with a story I do not know myself. I hope that you are able to this at home. There are lovely pictures of old rally cars as if we are back in the seventies.

    Eeehhhhhhh, are you allowed to watch sex? ROFL ROFL

    I'm not sure if I found the answer or not....

    Michael,

    That is odd, because if I look myself at the pages I find the years above the ‘tables’.

    Thanks for the links, Guus. I surfed all around, found two videos and many pictures. It was great. #266 did pretty well. I think 11th and third in class IV 4.

    So, what is the story behind this woman and why is she painted on so many different cars?

    I'm glad to see a glimpse back at the days of real MANLY race driving (even though they had women!) No power steering, no paddle shifters or a/c, and only AUDI had all-wheel drive!

    Dirt in your face, and you fealt like to did a full day's work back then. :love:

    I was reading about this historic rally in the May 2004 "MiniWorld" magazine and it stated that the highest placed UK team was of Tony Fall and Mike Kempley in a 240Z. They placed 53rd out of 276 that completed the rally; there were 351 entrants. Their car number is no. 45. I was trying to open one of the pictures of the car, but the page had expired. It is a red zed with no black hood and it has a drop bumper with 2 huge night driving lights.

    Hè Benny boys,

    Ben, if can’t open the page how do you know what kind of car it is? here is a picture of the MC Datsun of Toni Fall and it sure isn’t the same as the EAS Datsun.

    From memory there were 2 240Z's in the EAS, one of which had a lot of works, or work replica parts on them (and broke an axle) and the other went on to win the event. I suspected that the MC Z may have been the same car as the drop-down front bumpers are very rare.

    Hi Ben,

    You know about the Australian-built Z on this year's Safari - so no need to tell you about that - but the other one was UK-built ( by Duncan Pearcey of "The Z Farm" ) and I don't think it had any Works parts on it.

    The drop-bumpers ( also known as "Monte Carlo" bumpers ) are indeed very rare. I don't know of a genuine one in current use on a Historic Rally privateer Z. Certainly the one on the UK-built Safari car was not a genuine Works or Option drop bumper.

    If I remember correctly, the car driven on the Historic Monte this year by Tony Fall and Mike Kempley actually belongs to Mike Kempley. I don't think it has any Works parts on it ( as far as I remember ) and the drop bumper is a home-made item.

    Tony Fall has his own - UK-built - Historic Rally 240Z ( another red one, but with the black bonnet ) but he didn't drive it on this year's Historic Monte. He drove Mike Kempley's car instead.

    As far as I remember, anyway.

    Alan T.
