Due to sale fallen through - (no fault of the car) I can now re offer this car for sale. Happy to talk about a part exchange. This car is stunning in every way and is a top quality Historic rally car with a superb build pedigree. Full factory Gp2 spec. with Historic papers. Option to convert to LHD if required at an extra cost. Something different to an Escort ! http://jasonlepleymotorsport.co.uk/main-showroom/works-speccopy-lotus-sunbeam-rally-car/ ... See more

I’m not impressed easily, but was impressed with George & Toms pace this weekend, in the first generation Fiesta R2, embarrassing a lot more modern 4wd cars in the slippery conditions. Was a very tough & rough rally this year. George & Tom had own dramas costing them valuable time, and had to drive with a compromised set up all day. But on reflection 8th fastest O/A in first stage and 11th O/A in the 15 mile stage in a little fiesta with barely 130bhp @ wheels is impressive - Considering the amount of WRC & R5 plus cars out on BTRDA rallies today. Finished 1st BTRDA silver star/ 2wd, 1st R2 rallye cup ?? ... See more
