The World of Classic and Historic Rallying has grown considerably recently, with events like the Mille Miglia, the Roger Albert Clark series in the U.K., and all of the Historic components of other major events attracting attention. We have now created something of a presence in Classic European Rallying, and as such are now offering full Classic Car Preparation.
We have all now been involved in rallying for over 20 years, and still remember the utterly amazing Group B cars that dominated the World Rally scene, that ran in the early to mid-1980's, whihc in fact dominated World Motorsport at that time, overtaking Formula 1 in interest and live spectators. During this time, 1,000,000 or more spectators attended each event. Group B cars were banned at the close of 1986, and Group A took over, which was far less exciting, and audiences reduced considerably, as did the cars. Fortunately for us, some of the cars are still in existence, and are now enjoying something of a rennaissance. These cars had over 700 bhp at their peak, weighed 680 kgs, and were arguably the fastest cars on earth at the time, given the 4WD system that they employed. Indeed, in late 1995, a Peugeot 205 T16 took on the McLaren Formula 1 car of that time, and beat it on a run around the Nurnburgring.
We are building Group B Rally Cars all the time now, and can build or lease you the one of your choice. We have a 22,000 sq/ft of state-of-the-art factory in Shepperton, Middlesex, and look forward to meeting you.
Please call us on our Freecall Number when you are coming over to see us.
