FRENCHMAN Didier Auriol won the San Remo Rally yesterday at the wheel of his Toyota Celica.

Auriol came home 21 seconds clear of Spain's overnight leader Carlos Sainz who was driving a Subaru Impreza.

The victory increased Auriol's lead in the drivers' world championship to give him what should be a comfortable buffer before the final race of the season, next month's RAC Rally.
