Just completed a road test in this very special car that only Colin McRae and Nicky Grist drove as a factory M-Sport car, 8th overall San Remo 2001, 4th overall Monte Carlo 2002 and crashed in Corsica while lying in 4th place overall. The car sat idle for some time after Corsica and then it was beautifully rebuilt by Paul Benn, Paul finished the car in 2008 and we purchased the car for Steve Rimmer. Since then the car has been on display at Steve’s Dirtfish Rally School and has recently been shipped back over here for a thorough check over and will be seen this year on the forest rally stage at Goodwood Festival of Speed. Ian has been lucky enough to drive the car on a number of occasions while it was in the US and Alister McRae also drove it last year when he visited Dirtfish ! Long time friend and great engineer Nick Clipson called by to run through some systems checks after our chief Ford Focus engineer ( for now ) Chris carried out all the work. The car ran perfectly. We are hoping to have Alister McRae with us again this year at Goodwood.
