The Rise and Fall of the French Alpine Rally
In its heydays the French Alpine Rally, officially named Coupe des Alpes, was one of the two most ardous and ultra-sporting Rallies worldwide.
It was adventure pure, supreme and had but one rival, the Liége-Rome-Liége. The magic of the French Alpine still survives although the last proper one was held almost half a century ago. Makes like Alpine-Renault, Austin-Healey, Jaguar Mini and Sunbeam became famous due to their triumphs in the French Alpine Rally.
Sixty years ago Stirling Moss most sucessfully took part in three French Alpine Rallies and now wrote the introduction to Maretin Pfundner´s comprehensive history of that great moment.
