In year 2000, Richard Burns won the rally outright in this wonderfully original ex works car and BGMsport have had the pleasure of looking after the car for its current owner Chris Wilson for the past 3 years.
A few weeks ago, Ian was asked to take the car to the Sweet Lamb rally complex in Wales to drive it for a video film. We arrived a day early and took the opportunity to use the beautiful landscape around the Sweet Lamb complex to take some photos to truly do justice to the car in a place where rallying once thrived in the heart of Wales and indeed on some of the roads it was driven on 21 years ago!!! The following day we did a behind the scenes photo shoot as we followed the camera crew as they made a pretty special video. Ian did a great job driving the car and keeping it safe and had no hesitation in adding that it was truly a joy and an honour to be trusted to drive the car but to also have had a hand in keeping the car as original as possible, especially as Ian was friends with “Burnsie” from a very early age.
The car was recently sold by Collecting Cars and the video can be seen on Youtube and also on our Facebook page. We are pleased to add that for the short term the car will remain at BGMsport.
