Rallying with Modified bodywork

Postby knobstar » Sat May 17, 2014 7:06 am

Morning Guys n Gals,

I'm about to send off my '02 Touring to the bodyshop and need to start making some decisions about what to do with it 6 months hence. I tried rallying the other week and absolutely loved so my thoughts are now "could I make the '02 a rallycar?" I've tried to get my head around the blue book but, to be honest, came away confused!

Could anyone give me a steer as to whether or not there's a class in which I could compete assuming all the poiwertrain was at least BMW if not original '02?

Here's how she looked back in the early noughties:

The front is entirely FG and comes away as a oner. The rear arches are FG, too. Here's how she looks currently :oops:

Many thanks in advance - great forum!

Matt

Hi.
I've no connection to Dennis - there was atleast 1 owner inbetween him and I. She's been off the road for over a decade so I'm trying to right that wrong this year or next.
Here's another of her from 1998 on Anglesey:

Remember it having a good m10 engine first time I saw it but it progressed to the race scene and ended up with an s14 engine. Would make a nice looking rally car!

You can rally anything under 3.0 ltr! If you want to go historic..I think they were homolgated in '72 with the m10 1990cc . Don't quote me on it but struggling to see much, job for the tech dept at the msa.
