did hugh dunne not have an impreza after the legacy i think he did because i remember a lad telling me and my dad that hugh dunne has bought another subaru thats a good few years ago maybe the reg was a personal number plate?? sure wasnt H7 KAL on both of kenny mckinstrys legacy and impreza a few years back, sure that is a prodrive number plate what was on hugh dunnes legacy it that could of being later put on to any of the subarus if the car ended back in prodrive after hugh sold it

Dave Richards bought the Legacy (K555 BAT) off Hugh when he was selling it a few years ago , i think he wanted it got some museum in Prodrive or his own collection - something like that anyway :cool:

Cheers Tiger, I cannot understand how it has re-appeared on a Impreza. If the Legacy is still alive, surely it is worth more attched to the legacy.
Ruby Hugh does have a A8 Impreza currently for sale, Reg M555 SRT, Which is a Prodrive car but not a works car.

SRT does mean Subaru rally team, but in this case it really means nothing it was built by Prodrive. M555 SRT as far as I was built for Roger Duckworth(jacks brother) and never used by the works team, unless it ws used as a test car. I stand to be corrected.

That car was used by Brian Lyall, not Jack Duckworth, or Steve Mc Donald,

I have a photo in a mag somewhere with Roger driving it. maybe he bought it from Brain Lyall or vice a versa.

I think I have seen the legacy in Mayo, or someone in Mayo owns it.

Tony Green used it in Mayo in 2002. I knew it had some connection with Mayo at sometime.
Not sure if he still owns it though.

yeah the line of owners of H187 GUD was Prodrive (including driven by McRae on Ulster in 91), Fisher in 92 and 93, Leckey in 94, 95..later by Doherty Brothers ( I think McKinstry used it as a hirecar for a while) and finally Peter Green who I believe is still the current owner. For the Motorsport International show in Dublin a few years ago he got the company who originally done the logos for Fishers car to do an exact replica of the colour scheme as when Fisher had it including dozens of individual small orange triangles, which was there as part of the "Toughmac" logo

Incidentally Fisher won two tarmac championships, 92 and 93, the Donegal twice, Rally of Lakes twice, Manx National, Cavan, (possibly Monaghan too) and Cork once all in this car.

Yeah, McKinstry did use the car as a hire car, I can remember Malachy Crawford doing Donegal in it in 96 or 97 I think, he retired very early on minor accident that turmed into retirement,it was on RPM.
Fisher did indeed win Monaghan in the car, and also Carlow Stages in 1992, however, the Carlow Stages was called off that year after 2 or 3 stages as a mark of respect as Jim Dunne, a navigator who was killed in an accident early on in the rally................
