1994 BTCC Toyota Carina info

Hello,


I was wondering if anyone here could shed some light on the 1994 Toyota Carina's used in the BTCC.

Sounds silly, but I've done a couple of months research about the cars raced, but apart from a few photos on Google images, and some on FlickR etc, I've not really found many photos of the interior of the cars, or underside ( a couple of the car used in NZ).
I was after information like, what type of seat was used, steering wheel, chassis alterations etc.
Any help would be really appreciated.


Kindest regards,


Paul

Rouse Toyotas

Think I am right in saying Rouse ran Mondeos in `94 ? The cars I had were the Carinas he ran in `91 and `92. These cars ended up with Brian Chatfield, I bought them from him and sent them to NZ. I still have an engine block here I think. Alex

Shame you didn't want details of the 1993 Toyota, there are plenty of shots of the underside of that car courtesy of Hoy and Bailey.

I remember seeing him run one of the Carinas at a Lydden clubbie in '94
