Description

The 1990 Monte-Carlo Rally was the start of a fresh bid by Japanese giants Toyota, Mazda and Mitsubishi to topple the dominant Lancias in the World Rally Championship. Experience the incredible action and intense battle for victory as the best drivers fight for supremacy.

Juha Kankkunen rejoined Lancia alongside Didier Auriol and World Champion Miki Biasion, Carlos Sainz and Armin Schwarz led the Toyota challenge, Mazda retained Hannu Mikkola and Timo Salonen and Mitsubishi teamed Kenneth Eriksson with Ari Vatanen.

With the traditional snow and ice of the Monte-Carlo Rally missing, tyre choice was vital and it seemed Auriol and Sainz had made the right choices, dominating the event ahead of their teammates.

While Auriol's Lancia Delta showed the way, Sainz kept his Celica GT-4 in touch.

With just a handful of miles to go, the pair were equal on time, setting up a tension-packed finale.

Controversy struck when the result was appealed, but the protest had no impact on the outcome.
