WOCCOWAYCER should be qualifying in the top 10 on the grid
MG Metro Turbo Challenge

A bit more info re the Metro Turbo series.

An Austin Rover information sheet (Racecard) that announced the change to Turbo power and the accompanying body kit.

Also added a qualifying sheet from a European Championship round in 1988 that gives many names from the series.

Thanks Woccowaycer

The 'names' seem to have reduced a bit by this time, a few stalwarts of the category and there were 2 guest cars most of the time, in this instance Steve Parrish and Dai Llewellyn is seems? Parrish at one point was quite strongly linked to a BTCC campaign with Andy Rouse....

Although wasn't there another David Llewellyn to the rally star during the period?

Yes you're right, this is the other one, with a y not an i

I can remember Steve Parrish running in the 1986 series too, my brother Dave Carvell was asked to take him round the circuit for a few laps during the lunch break to show him the lines !!, he used Richard Potter's TWR XJS road car for the task.

Have added my favourite photo from the '86 season.

Y'know, in the first race I did in a Metro at Donington I did exactly the same thing coming into Gerrards. The CoC suggested I was "over exuberant". The photographers suggested it was just one wheel less than normal.

Peter, for two reasons I think you may be mistaken here. Firstly, if your race was at Donington and you did that coming into Gerards you must have been using the very long circuit layout which also involves the M1 as Gerards is at Mallory Park! Secondly, if your race was at Mallory & you did do that on the way into Gerards, I suspect you would have rolled quite spectacularly into the sleepers!
I think you mean Goddards at Donington, the Chicane on to the start-finish straight...

I always thought Gerald's was the chicane. But yes Goddards.
