Something wrong here! Thor debuted his RS200 already in the 1986 RX GP…

Interesting thing here is that there is also Antero Laine in the ex Seppo Xtrac aswell who beats Thor off the line!

So, again Schie in an Xtrac, Laine in an Xtrac, Welch in an Xtrac and John Smith in an Xtrac!

There are 4 I tell you!

Still something wrong here! In my GP story of 1987 I wrote that Andy Bentza got his old Audi 80 quattro from Reneé Vontsina to do the GP, after he retired in early 1987… Antero Laine is an old friend, I do not remember that he ever drove at Brands Hatch nor Seppo’s Xtrac. The name looks as it could be a Jarmo Laine, but I do not immediately remember a Jarmo Laine either…

BTW, it cannot be the ex-Niittymäki Xtrac anyway as Seppo sold the car in early 1987 to Norwegian Ragnar Forsberg and in the end of 1987 the XR3 was owned by this http://photos-a.ak.fbcdn.net/photos-...89136_6771.jpg Viking warrior.

According to the recordings I have, the event was held at Brands Hatch 1987 it was a British Championship round running along side it would seem some kind of International event on the same day maybe someone else on here can answer.Also the clip I previously posted on here with Rennison competeing against Matti Alamaki in the Delta at Lydden was from the same year 1987 and it was classed as the sealink challenge?

Ahhh, and I was stuck on the 1987 RX GP all the time…
Remember the Sealink Challenge, that was a cooperation between TEAC and the NRV, racing at Lydden as well as Valkenswaard.

In the John Webb days, for a couple of years there were a couple of "internationals" in March, (1986 and 1987? -need to check) A round at Brands and a round at Cadwell Park, as you said run alongside the British Championship. With seperate "international finals".

Pretty sure when Holm debut the RS200, as most others it was in Ford Colours. The car stayed in England for the winter and raced in the Lydden Winter Series in plain white.

Dont - remember Matti ever racing in the Sealink triangular challenge - wasn`t it Belgium v Holland v England - may have been 2wd only - like the lord of lydden title.

No lol, I ll dig out the Mike Endean interview I ve got somewhere, scan it and email it to you Chunder. Schies wasn t a true Xtrac, Wahlunds wasn t either, nor Kittlesens. Parmo Laines in the ex Schie car here.

Thor definately debuted the RS200 at the 1986 GP in the rain as did Schanche and Nilsson, all had the Ford livery,Gollop also debuted the 6R4 in fact the only one on the entry. Rennison was the first to have an RS200 early 86.

Nope, Schanche’s RS200 had no blue Ford livery any more and had already the 2.1 evo engine in it. Gollop’s 6R4 was still white that weekend. Yep, Rennison did already the Dutch ERC round in August 1986 with his RS200.

I think that Terry O’Shea’s Mk3 went to Gunnar Kittilsen. But who the heck is Parmo Laine? Laine is a Finnish family name and, therefore, I’m certain that his christian name would be Jarmo, not Parmo.
