To summarise this vehicle has been restored and maintained regardless of cost. It has come to us after being in its former ownership for over 12 years where is has competed very successfully. Most recently in June 2024 where it finished 2nd in class. In the right hands it will certainly be a class winner with little to no preparation required prior to use! This car cannot be compared to scruffy poorly prepared road rally cars !

The panel gaps are exceptional as is the drive train and usability even just for normal road use!

This is one not to be missed The cost of building a car to anywhere near this specification would cost more £50k +. Supplied today following a full service and MOT prior to delivery.
