Octane Magazine (UK) - Pat Doran RS200 Feature

Not sure if anyone is interested, but there is a feature on Pat Doran's rallycross RS200 in the November issue (#173) of Octane Magazine. Hal Ridge drives the car and, although I might be biased because of the subject material, I thought it was a good read.

The cover looks like this:



It's not a magazine that I read very frequently, but a mate of mine had a copy in the middle of a stack of papers and I happened to notice it said "Rallycross RS200" on the spine!

Aye, think this was done months ago. They also put a few people in the C4 I think as I have seen the odd article

Problem with these mags, is they are very pricey!! A fiver or more and sadly rammed full of adverts.

But hopefully the piece is different, and the Triggers broom element of that car comes across!!

Ah yeah, there was a video (of an exceptionally unenthusiastic chap) driving the C4 doing the rounds a while ago.

The article doesn't delve too much into the history of the car: it's current specification is covered, but the main focus is how it is to drive. There are some pretty cool photos as well which I assume were done car-to-car.

Last time I saw this RS200 featured in a magazine was in 2003: I wonder how much of the car then is present now!

Not a huge amount I'd have thought - it's been bashed and barbecued since then! Probably just the tub and frame - bodywork on those things is pretty much a consumable part
