>>WRCnews Three Points Away from the Title TWO drivers go to the final European championship round with the chance to win. Favourite, only three points away from the title, is the Peugeot driver Luca Rossetti. Hoping hard is his fellow Italian Renato Travaglia, who alternates between driving a Mitsubishi and a Fiat. The recent cancellation of the Halkidikis Rally, listed to be the penultimate round, means the three-day Rallye Antibes Cote d’Azur (17-19 Oct) will settle the issue. The event uses traditional Monte Carlo Rally stages almost exclusively, but this time in clear conditions, and with over 300km of stages it is the longest event in the ERC calendar. Land of the Youngest Drivers SLOAN Cox became the second youngest driver to contest a World Championship rally when he and his elder co- driving sister Tarryn started the Repco Rally New Zealand last weekend. He was 16 years and 313 days old, a surprise in the world of rallying, but not the youngest ever. The record is still held by fellow New Zealander Kirsty Nelson ,who started the Propecia Rally New Zealand in 2006 at the age of 16 years 295 days. Cox started his rally career at the age of 15, lured into the sport by the enthusiasm of his father who rallied a Nissan Pulsar GTI-R. This year he qualified officially as a Junior driver, eligible to contest events in the national Vantage New Zealand Rally Championship. His car is a Mitsubishi Lancer Evo VIII formerly rallied by Dean Summer. 19 Rossetti Travaglia
