This car is very well known, it won the Irish national championship in 1992 (car on front of Car Sport magazine 1992 which I also have) beating of a lot of stiff competition, owned and driven by the great Peader Hurson. The car done a few more events over next few years then was retired to a barn.

I bought the car minus the Nissan 240 engine and ZF box as they had been sold off.

It was then totally stripped and rebuilt every nut and bolt in 2011 by Donnelly Motorsport to a very high standard, new front wings were needed arches and few other shell parts. The car was totally seam welded with additional safety roll bars added to take it up to the high standard of safety regulations. Before re fitting the original heavy duty ZF fully floating rear axle it was stripped new seals, bearings, half shafts etc were replaced and painted black.

The original full suspension and brakes were also stripped and totally refurbished to the highest standard possible then painted and refitted with all new brake pipe lines. The car was then sprayed Opel white outside and grey inside again to a very high standard, then fitted with a JRE 2.0 all steel fully loaded engine on Jenvey throttle bodies producing approx. 170/180 bhp this really is a very fit car and sounds amazing.

I have done one track event in 2012 and has been dry stored since then.

Opel Ascona as you know are getting so hard to find but this one truly is a gem.
