V10 ALL, I thought was a 99 car?
It could be a number of cars, it could be Gerard Moroneys car, or Steve Furzeland has his 98 spec car for sale recently he could have traded up, or Daragh Rafferty could have traded up, could be a number of cars from the UK. Still thinking about it, it is a bargain, 100k Euro buys you a X5 , which would you rather have an Ex Works WRC or a 4 X 4 to go to Dunnes. I wonder is there room for a baby seat?
Bobo, Donie used Ollies P2000 in Wicklow not a 98,
Hatsford could indeed be Stephens, he did have his for sale recently as well, but I think he was looking for a group N trade in or something along those lines.
was talking to a well known driver and he said that group n cars are too dangerous now, he reckons there too quick and that the brakes arent up to it, he has bought a WRC because he feels safer driving it, any opinions??
By the way any idea what the costs involved are for running say a 98 pec wrc on a national event?? 5k all in?? maybe more maybe less??
I can only guess, but it must be a minimum of 5K, if you have your own service crew. 8 Stages = four sets of tyres, must be at least 2k- Special fuel and oil must add another whack, insurance if you have it insured, which I guess you would do must be a grand for the day and then service crew. Might not be that expensive after all.
I know the modern Group N cars are allowed improved brakes, and the bodyshells are now caged to WRC spec cars. And certainly they have the speed in the right hands to match a WRC, but are they as safe as a WRC not too sure.
It if its P5 WRC it is a 97 car, Ex Eriksson, he won the Swedish in 97 in this car. But I am guessing it has been upgraded to 98 Spec with active rear Diff and electronic adjustable shocks.
Still a bloody bargain.
Damn sure it is, Clan would u burn off 4 sets in one day?? I thought maybe the top boys would but someone like Darradgh Rafferty would hardly need 4 sets?? maybe 2?? Plus id say a lot of the national boys have their own lads looking after them and then get Harper or someone to rebuild em once or twice a year??
