Opel Corsa S1600 LHD, built by RML, on behalf of Opel Performance Centre (Works Team).
The car was run by Team Palmer in the 2003/4 for the defence of the Kris Meeke's Junior BRC Title and various JWRC events,
The car has just undergone a bare shell restoration and re-painted in "Works" colours.

Mostly new parts fitted and taken from a comprehensive spares package.

Fully rebuilt 6 speed sequential gearbox. Engine has done only 50 km from rebuild from Ridgeway Race Engines (ex Swindon Race Engines technicians) Including new engine block, new steel crank shaft, new steel rods, new cam shafts, new pistons and new cylinder head.

After completion of the rebuild, the car has been back to Ridgeway Race Engines to be run on a rolling road and then re-mapped and checked by their technician.

All parts re-used have been re-finished prior to be re-fitted to the car. This includes all new wheel bearings, new drive shafts and new rose joints on suspension arms etc.

Car benefits from Reiger fully adjustable dampers, custom made Raychem wiring loom, Motec dash display and engine management and OPC AP brakes.

This car is like a brand-new build. It was carried out by Opel specialist technician, Gavin Cox, who ran Bruno Thiry and Freddy Liox in their time with Opel.

The car has a wealth of paperwork including FIA Gold Passport, the Gold Sticker on the roll cage with matching numbers, MSA log book and RML file with technical bulletins and set up sheets with gearbox diagrams etc.

The car is currently siting in tarmac trim but will include the gravel set up, lamp pod and a massive works type spare package (more photographs are available of both the car during its rebuild. A detailed spares list with photos are available by e-mail.

This is a rare opportunity to own a fully restored, ex-works rally car. It is suitable for Demo / Goodwood/Rally Day / Slowly Sideways type events such as Eifel Rally/ Trasmeria Rally / Vosges Rally or even competition rallying.
