Henri Pepsicola should be qualifying in the top 10 on the grid

The 406 was a beautiful looking car in its day. I really liked the green and gold BTCC livery.

You're right it was the Mansell race in the middle of the year. Paul Radisich qualified third on the grid, only to be sent to the back, IIRC for leaking oil that spoiled other drivers runs, as this was the days of the one shot showdown.

Sorry to resurrect this thread, however does anyone have any reasonably concrete info on how exactly the STW car differed from the BTCC car? I have seen comments around the front suspension being "illegal" or verging on it. Could anyone expand on that?

Thanks.

I think we need a big super touring thread at some point. We donít hear much about that era anymore and itís hard to get much info on it

Bringing up this thread again due to a recent Autosport podcast, which can be found here https://www.autosport.com/podcast, entitled "Tim Harvey and the golden era of Super Touring"

In it, he talks about the Peugeot campaign, well worth a listen. Below are some bits:

Q: Peugeot was struggling with a different engine spec at times, didn't they, to what they were using in Europe very successfully.

TH: Yeh, that was the biggest waste of money and everyone's time and effort really, because MSD built the cars in the UK with absolutely no collaboration what-so-ever with Peugeot Sport in France who were building the cars for the German touring car championship [STW], which AÔello was winning in. We had absolutely no crossover of technical information, engines.

Q: Defeats the object of super-touring really, doesn't it, the point was it was the same spec?

TH: It was, exactly the same rules, but Peugeot France would not share anything with Peugeot UK and you just think for a manufacturer to have produced, what at the time was arguably the best car in Germany, not to share that out of Anglo-France bad relations seems absolutely bizarre.

It was three years of good, hard racing. It was fun with Patrick and good with Paul Radisich. We did the best we could with the budget. Our total bill was less than the French spent on engines.
