We bought the car in 2002.

In the car was a 4x4 Cosworth engine. With the small turbo. The measured horsepower was 300 Hp.

The gearbox was a BW T5 std 2wd Sierra Cosworth gearbox.

The suspension was the rally GrA version of the Sierra Cosworth RS. But therewere big GrA brakes on the car.

We did some races with the car as is. And the biggest problem were the wheel bearings.Even small vibration on the massive GrA

brakes ruined the bearings.


In 2008 we started doing some more races with the car. The engine had got a big T4 turbo and the 8 injector inlet manifold.

In that time is was less expensive to buy used RS500 parts.
We bought between 2005 and 2014;

ˇ        Magnesium front uprights

ˇ        Centre lock wheel hubs 2 sets for 4 wheels but not complete.

ˇ        4 Getrag 265 GrA gearboxes in parts

ˇ        1 complete Getrag 265 GrA gearbox

ˇ        Magnesium rear suspension beams.

ˇ        3 Inlet 8 injector manifolds

ˇ        We still collecting AP racing callipers from the period 1985-1995. There is now a collection of about 20 sets.
