result he would achieve for the team, for the season was to end with seventh in the drivers' championship, with no victories. Rule changes that were to be brought in for the 2004 season changed the previous practice of having three nominated points-scorers within a team to two. With Loeb partway through a multiple year contract, this meant the Citroën factory team, under Guy Frequelin's leadership, were forced to choose between dropping McRae or Sainz. With Sainz being the more successful of the two during the 2003 season, it was McRae who had to look elsewhere for 2004. Uncertain future for McRae David Richards, McRae's former boss at Subaru, who had by now taken over WRC's commercial rights holders ISC and worried that the loss of a character like McRae would damage his ability to market the sport, set about trying to help McRae find a drive for 2004.

Despite his record of 22 victories without any losses, including fifteen knockouts, he was a virtual unknown to most boxing fans when he met the WBA (World Boxing Association) Bantamweight champion Jeff Chandler (Jeff Chandler (boxer)) in Atlantic City (Atlantic City, New Jersey). After dropping the champion in round eleven, Sandoval knocked Chandler out in round fifteen, to become champion in a major upset. He followed this up with his first trip abroad, to Monte Carlo on September 22. He outpointed the top ranked and well known Edgar Román‎ over fifteen rounds on the undercard of Donald Curry's sixth round knockout win over Nino LaRocca. He fought again on 15 December against Cardenio Ulloa, who was attempting to become the first Chilean world boxing champion in history. According to the report made by ''Ring En Español'', Ulloa caused Chilean dictator Augusto Pinochet to jump off his chair with excitement when he dropped Sandoval in the first round, but Sandoval recovered and retained the title with an eighth-round knockout. http: boxrec.com media index.php Jeff_Chandler_vs._Richie_Sandoval Abberline was subsequently involved in the investigation of the Cleveland Street scandal in 1889.

Monte Carlo

'''Monte Carlo''' ( , Monégasque (Monégasque dialect): ''Monte-Carlu'') officially refers to an administrative area of the Principality of Monaco, specifically the ward (Ward (country subdivision)) of Monte Carlo Spélugues, where the Monte Carlo Casino is located. Informally the name also refers to a larger district, the Monte Carlo Quarter (corresponding to the former municipality of Monte Carlo), which besides Monte Carlo Spélugues also includes the wards of La Rousse Saint Roman (Saint Roman, Monaco), Larvotto Bas Moulins (Larvotto), and Saint Michel (Saint Michel, Monaco). The permanent population of the ward of Monte Carlo is about 3,500, while that of the quarter is about 15,000. Monaco has four traditional quarters. From west to east they are: Fontvieille (Fontvieille, Monaco) (the newest), Monaco-Ville (the oldest), La Condamine, and Monte Carlo.

Monte Carlo (literally "Mount Charles") is situated on a prominent escarpment at the base of the Maritime Alps along the French Riviera. Near the western end of the quarter is the world-famous Place du Casino, the gambling center which has made Monte Carlo "an international byword for the extravagant display and reckless dispersal of wealth". "Monaco" in ''The New Encyclopædia Britannica'', 15th edition (Chicago, 1991), vol. 8, p. 243. It is also the location of the Hôtel de Paris (Hôtel de Paris Monte-Carlo), the Café de Paris, and the Salle Garnier (the casino theatre which is the home of the Opéra de Monte-Carlo).

The eastern part of the quarter includes the community of Larvotto with Monaco's only public beach, as well as its new convention center (the Grimaldi Forum), and the Monte-Carlo Bay Hotel & Resort. At the quarter's eastern border, one crosses into the French (France) town of Beausoleil (Beausoleil, Alpes-Maritimes) (sometimes referred to as Monte-Carlo-Supérieur), and just to its east is the western border of Italy.
