That Sue Jeffereys Porsche is only half the car it was. Nilsson had a pretty potent set up back then with a very powerful engine. I was at that first GP in 82 and have to say he dominated the meeting, which included state of the art Quattro's and superquick Escort MK2 turbo's. As for this of the green porsche "KA" um seem to recall Morten Anderson used one then went on to a 6R4.

I remember Morten Anderson.......1991 European Rallycross at Lydden Hill, he claimed he was British! hehe.......even though he is from Denmark.

He was a regular in the GB champs in the early ninetees as well. But always underachived. the firs time i came across him in the Metro was at the King of Croft meating in 1990 where Mark Flahaty stormed to victory.

Oooh Bert - handbags at 10 paces!

Never been clobbered by a Porsche (yet). Been hit on the grid by one of the old Fast Parts (god I could have had a field day there with a yellow paintbrush) when the driver wouldn't come to his grid box, and then at the last moment his foot "slipped" off the clutch. Luckily for me it was wet and he pushed me back. I now wear rigger boots so if anyone ever does that again their car will come off second best I promise.
Nearly got wiped out by Tony Proctor as well in the Sierra - he did a burnout just before the grid and lost it - ended up facing the wrong way on the grid. I think that has to be my biggest gripe with drivers - they have all the space from Paddock to the grid to warm up their tyres - and they do it 20ft in front of you!

I remember at an old Euro meeting a chap in a black Porsche coming to the line with his arm out the window. He called me over and asked me to put a stone under his wheel to stop him from rolling. When I say stone I actually mean a f**k off size piece of flint. He was none too impressed when his stone joined all the others in the gravel trap.

Ahhh the joys of being on the startline.......

Could the green Porsche you are thinking about be Rob Gibsons car that was eventually written off at Lydden in the mid eighties. He then replaced it with a MG Metro and used it for several seasons if memory serves me well!

I thought Gibbo's Porsche was yellow? The infamous video clip of him leaving Chessons Drift by a most unconventional route I think will back me up.....

I didn't realise there was a conventional way to leave Chessons.

Everybody seems to have very different lines through there, I've even seen one or two people go through Chessons without using any of the grass or banking. (Obviously they've lost it the minute they've got back onto the sealed surface and speared into the tyre wall).

No, thinking about it, it would definitely be the Morten Andersen car (I've managed to find it listed in an old Lydden programme, and I'm sure I've got a decent photo of it somewhere)- Gibson's 911 was yellow, as Hog says, and I've never actually seen that car in action other than on TV- by the time I went to my first rallycross meeting, I'm sure he was running his 6R4

Oops.
Quite right Hog, Gibsons car was yellow and what a spectacular end became of it, I think it only just missed the truck parked behind the bank. Was Andersons car a flourescent green or dark green, I'm sure I saw it in action, just cannot place it clearly against Alemaki, Gibson etc.

Spooky, that's the second time Matti Alamaki's Porsche has cropped up this week. I was discussing it only last Sunday. Excuse me while I wipe away the drool...

Was watching the '86 ERC tape the other day. The things Matti did with that Porsche were just plain silly. Anyone who reckons he won the ERC for Peugoet coz he had the best car should watch that tape and see how hard he tried to get that thing handling.
Gibbo's car ended up with a guy called Dave Phillipson, who did OK with it in 1990.
As for Barry Stewart, he really knows what he is doing with 911's as he tunes one of the quickest cars in Open class Porsche circuit racing.
I think the car is a bit old and frail, and really should be put out to grass.

Does anyone know anything about the black (was also white earlier)Avon/Duckhams ex Henric Jacobsen 911? It competed in the Internations Cup in 1989 and I think it also has been owned/raced by Arne Jorgensen in Denmark. I bought this car in Januari 2008 and Im looking for any information and pictures!

It was the car the took overall victory at the first ever rallycross meeting driven by Vic Elford.

Got a picture of Finn Jesperson here but in the background we got Henrik and his car in shot, just,if you can get hold of the Inter-nations video it does feature on there.
