On 23 July 1981 Todt and his driver, Guy Frequelin, stepped out of a Talbot Sunbeam Lotus after four days of the Rally Codasur. After 16 stages (the shortest, a 14km dash through La Pampa to open proceedings was cancelled) and 14hr 22min of flat-out competition, the Frenchmen were victorious.
They arrived in Argentina for the nation’s second ever round of the FIA World Rally Championship with a seven-point lead at the top of the table and would depart with a handsome lead of 23 points over Datsun driver Shekhar Mehta.
It was Mehta’s team-mate, Timo Salonen, who proved the Talbot pair’s sternest rival through some of the season’s longest stages, including the Guachipas - El Tala test, which took more than an hour and a half to complete. ผลบอล7m
