BGMsport takes Rally Legends to Race Retro
Posted on Wednesday 11th March 2015
We are very proud at BGMsport to have had the opportunity to bring to Race Retro some fantastic rally cars that were legends in their day and four well known rally drivers, Jimmy McRae, Dai Llewellin, Billy Gwynne and Geoff Jones. The drivers had seven cars to choose from including ex works Vauxhall Chevette HSR, Henri Toivonen’s ex works Talbot Sunbeam and Skoda Octavia WRC Evo 3 a car originally driven by Kenneth Eriksson. Ian Gwynne owner of BGMsport had the pleasure of driving the Ford RS200 an ex Ford works car that was only driven by Stig Blomqvist and is totally original.
The life blood of BGMsport is to bring these cars back to life in their original condition as they would have been used in the day and thanks to a very generous customer and owner of the above mentioned cars Steve Rimmer, who is very happy for the cars to take part in events like Race Retro.
Good weather on Saturday gave everyone a great day of driving, and Alistair Goliah, Duncan Waite along with Ben Llewellin who also got behind the wheel of the other cars taken by BGMsport to the event. Owner drivers Duncan Waite in his BGMsport built 3 door replica of Didier Auriol Sierra, along with Alistair Goliah who drove his lovely MK1 Lotus Ford Cortina (Ex Jimmy McRae car) also enjoyed the event and the opportunity to take their cars out onto the rally stage.
Ian Gwynne also shared is Ex Jimmy McRae Ford Sierra RS Cosworth, 1989 Autoglass winning Tour of Britain car with BGMsport guest drivers.
