The yellow one I bought as a XR2 one owner road car and raced it in the Group 1 with a 1300 engine.
I also raced this car at Lydden as a 1300 or 1600 in there own saloon series.
I sold this car to Hugh Poston who then sold it Neil Bray.

Just jumped on here for a browse, many names i recall having some great races with.

When i sold the mk1 mexico i built a mk1 xr2 racing it for a few years to good results before moving on to V6 Eurocar 98/2002 then on to pick ups for 3 seasons.
Now fast forward to 2009 i linked up with ol' mate Tony Paxman from eurocar days, and we run a very nice/quick mk2 escort in group2 zakspeed livery.
mainly doing european longer races. Plenty of pots to prove provenance.

Anyone know where my old mk1 mexico is living these day's please give me a call. andy pyke 07778 185606

My good friend & ex sponsor Mr Roger Parry (xr2) sadly passed away a few yrs ago C' got hold of him too quickly.
Andy Belcher 1300 fiesta super sport is still alive and kicking about with caterham 7 stuff.

A bit of an update, Super road saloons Lotus Sunbeam's....

Neil Hasler sold his white and green stripe car to Liegh Fraklin around 04/05, that came in a few years back for some improvements and upgrades, he competes in Toyo Racing Saloons, although I haven't seen him in the results for a couple of years.

Neils red Sunbeam I built back in '89, got sold to Mark Wyatt around '93, he went on to class champion, (I think), Mark sold the car to Steve Taylor, he done a few races around '95/'96 he then sold to Mark Monk around '98, he done few races, then sold to Dave Thorpe for track days, he then sold to Steve Sutton for track days, he then sold back to Steve Taylor for track days, it came back in for restoration and improvements a few years back,
Steve sold the car on last year, he didn't get around to building it up again.

Spoke to Jon Woodward not long ago..he still has his orange race car, not raced since around '93/94.

Not sure if Rob Beaumont still has his car. Woody might know.

Mikes Super Road Saloon car became his Mod Prod car for '92/'93, then became my Mod Prod car as from '94 to present

My first Super Road Saloon car '90/'91 then became Eric Crawley's, he then sold to Nick Kaye around '97, Nick went on to class champion in around '99/'00, car then came back to me, I then sold to Dave Thorpe, he done few Mod Prod races. he still has the car.

I spoke to Nick Kaye at Brands last year, after the Sunbeam he went on to racing Ferrari's with good success, he expressed an interest in his old Sunbeam,

My second Super Road saloon car (my first green and orange stripe), I raced a few rounds in '92/'93, sold to a friend as road car to fund present Mod prod car. that car changed hands to another friend around '04, it came back in a
couple of years ago for restoration and upgrades, still used on track days.

Nostalgia Ain't What It Used To Be!

You can't beat a bit of a thread revival!

I came back here after a few mentions about my Brother's and my own Nova Sports elsewhere.

Still good to see some of you out and about from time to time. Plus those who have reconnected via Facebook too. I guess that's taken away much of the jibber jabber from here.

I still intend to restore my Nova Sport back to it's 1991 spec at some point. The GSi that I ran in latter years is another work in progress job, which now sits in ModProd spec, and will probably evolve further for running elsewhere.

Happy days. A shame it got ruined.
