Here is our corsa
you might have seen it up at Knockhill or in a tarmac rally or two a few years ago
here is a couple of photos from ingliston and crail under its original guise


then we got a nice paint job and some stickers



did a few events over the years

then it sat for far too long in one of the sheds after a bad result at the Jim Clark
However we are now going to rebuild it to its former glory
recently we have further strengthened the engine bay



And started sand blasting the engine bay as it needed a good clean up

not quite sure they were on the car when we got it, originally it was built for us by a company that was called something like Walden Engineering run by a certain Nigel Bridger who some of you may have heard of. He had around 6 months to build the car and after 10, half of it hadn't been done and the false promises were constant so we took the car and have pretty much rebuilt it since then

The car was then put back together





There was then a mini rally at Kames, Where an incident occurred as can be seen in the below links

The damage was pretty extensive, chassis had to be sorted on a jig, quaife casing cracked
Pic from when we picked it up from being sorted



Car then sat for some time as we have been working on other projects

Got a good deal on some ITBs, wiring and ECU



Currently working on the new fueling set up
