Martin Holmes' World Rallying annuals, for the 21st time with
the support of Pirelli, are recognised as the leading books on
international rallying in the world. Previous editions have established
this annual as the leading reference book of the sport, used by the
industry, journalists and rally fans all over the world. Centred on the
2008 World Rally Championships, there is also coverage of the IRC,
European, Asia-Pacific, Middle East and African regional championships, and
many national championships around the world. All the features are
illustrated comprehensively, primarily by Maurice Selden's photography.
The book also gives a unique appendix of results of all the major national
rally championships round the world.
The leading features in Pirelli World Rallying 31 will include a history of
Super 2000, the memories and advice from 70 year old Rauno Aaltonen and
stories about Prodrive's World Rally Car customer programme. Other
features will relate to the people and subjects which become topical as the
season progresses. Other contents include the regular features concerning
car developments and specifications, top drivers' records, the World
Championships roll of honour and a diary of the most significant features
of the year.
