Yes please, I used to love the 80's Uniroyal series!!

Massive grids, great racing etc..

People like Sven Platt (whatever happened to him?), John Cleland, Skid Scarborough and Gerry Marshall sideways around Woodcote hairpin on the old Silverstone club circuit was a fantastic spectacle!

When I finally get round to hooking up a scanner i'll post some old pics of these prodsaloon cars for everyone!

Hi, my Rover raced in the '86 prod saloon championships and did the 24 hour race that year as well, if you have any footage from 86 rallycrosscraig I'd appreciate a copy.
Thanks
Tim

Tim picked up those videos on thursday and watched the first one today - great memories, watched 86 Willhire. Was your car the Istel Rover, white with a blue stripe?

Yes, that's my car. There were 2 Istel cars built for the '86 championships, but only mine was used for the 24 hour race. I didn't think it lasted too long in the race though?

Run by Colin Davids for you and Tim Harvey?

I've got a paddock shot of the 2 lined up somewhere - i'll dig it out!

Yes, the cars were run by Colin Davids and driven then by Tim Harvey and Tim Goss, but not me. I've owned it since 2004 and only have some photos from old Autosports. I've never seen a photo of the two cars together, so it would great to see one.
Thanks

Sorry TSA I assumed when you refered to the 86' car as your car you were Mr Goss!!

But sure I had the paddock pic of the cars lined up when I was hunting for the Grp A pics I posted, but can't remember where I put them afterwards!!

I'll post it on as soon as I can!

Out of interest what had the car been doing these last 20 years before you got hold of it?

Until I bought it, the car hadn't been raced since 86 and had been used for track days. I don't know what happened to the other car but would be interested to know.

Ok, It must be one of these two cars then.

The Golf was also run by Colin Davids for Vic Lee I think?
