Post 1945 Rally Drivers

Henri Toivonen

In 1986 Henri Toivonen won Monte Carlo exactly 20 years after his father. In Monte Carlo he drove Lancia.

Lancia was number one racing team at the time, and Henri its best driver.

Few months after Monte the joy was changed into tragedy. Henri lost his life in an accident on the Tour de Corse in 1986, when his Lancia plunged down a ravine and exploded.

Henri Toivonen died young and who knows what might have happened in the future - he is still considered one of the most talented drivers of all times.
