  1. 7 years on and I still own my 2nd V6, now nudging 140,000 miles. Revo stage 2 remap, Bilstein B12 suspension, R32 front and rear anti roll bars and the car is amazing to drive. Refurbished alloys have kept it looking tidy. New radiator and clutch are the only real big items the car has needed.
  2. https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/1989-Mk2-VW-Golf-G60-Rallye-GrpA-original-rally-car/283922058360?hash=item421b12cc78:g:Bs8AAOSwhkNe72Ep This is an original rallye car built in 1989 for Swedish rally legend Erik Eken Johansson, using all VW motorsport parts. It was used in Sweden and in Europe to contest many WRC events. Then later in its life was used by Swedish driver Mikael Gustafsson to contend Swedish national events. There is a good detailed provenance of its history. in 2017 a bare shell restoration was started. The shell was striped and carefully restored, only replacing parts that were beyond repair, ensuring that the original patina was kept. The Proflex suspension was renewed by Proflex UK, The engine had a complete rebuild, the VW motorsport gearbox and rear diff were completely rebuilt by gearbox specialist KN transmissions. A completely New motorsport wiring loom was built, all new fuel lines and fittings , new seats, harnesses, and most other parts to numerous to mention are all new and documented. it Must be viewed to appreciate the work thats gone into this car. In 2018 it contended a few UK events to shakedown the new build. it was invited to Goodwood festival of speed, Shelsley Walsh , and a couple of slowly sideways events to mention a few. where it behaved impeccably. It comes with an impressive spares package, to include, 20 wheels and tyres , mainly new. The registration OPR500 is its original Swedish reg number, its not uk reg at the moment. But has all the correct paperwork to do so, if required. It does have a UK MSA Rally log book
  3. https://www.neilbainbridge.com/Cars/Details/10942/VW-Motorsport-G40-Cup DESCRIPTION VW G40Cup Complete with FIA Homologation Documents, MSA Vehicle Passport and V5 This Original G40 Cup is the 'last one' still competing to my knowledge and a very rare car......it is also the only G40 Cup Race car to ever be 'road registered' in 1998 to allow it to compete in a previous roadgoing production class in MSA Hillclimbs. History. 1 of 50 cars plucked from the production line (before undersealing etc) by VW Motorsport and converted to race spec for the VW G40 Cup Race Series which ran from 1990-96. Built in 1991 by Barwell motorsport and competed in UK Circuit racing until 1996. Originally driven by Mark Lemmer: 1992-12 starts, 12 finishes, 1 win, 2 second places, 3 third places, 3 fastest laps and 1 lap record. 1993-11 starts, 11 finishes, 3 pole positions, 1 win, 3 second places, 1 3rd place, 3 fastest laps, 3 lap records. 1994-96 Gary james, Tim Munday then drove the car but unable to find the results. 1996-2000 Purchased by Damon Gray in 1996 and campaigned in MSA Hillclimbs Class 7 modified production, converted to road spec and road registered in 1998 to allow it to compete in road going production until 2000 where it was then dry stored until sold in 2006. 2006-2011 Re commissioned by David Sturdy and Richard Vale and competed in MSA Harewood speed Championships winning outright in 2009 & 2010 and coming runner up in 2008. 33 Races, 13 wins, 11 second places, 7 third places with only 2 finishes off the podium in 5 years of competition. Course record holder 12/4/2009-12/5/2012 and still 1 of only 3 cars to go sub 67's. 2012-2015 Purchased by Will Roberts competing in MSA Hillclimbs at Harewood, prescot, Barbon. 13 Races, 2 wins,3 second places and 4 third places. 2016-2018 Purchased by Ian Johnson November 2016from Richard Vale who had bought the G40 back from Will Roberts in 2015 but did not compete just dry stored. The G40 Cup was returned back to Full Modified Production spec from its road going spec. MSA Vehicle passport June 2017 Competed in MSA Sprints modified production class 3b and also Javelin Sprint series class highly modified production 1600-2000cc. 7 Races, 2 wins, 2 second places, 1 third place and 2 forth places. Car Condition Being a race car for all of its 27 years the G40 Cup has had a 'used' life but is very presentable with no rot along with recent paintwork (end 2017) to bonnet, wings, rear hatch, front bumper, rear bumper and 4 arch extensions. Everything works as it should with nothing needing doing mechanically, its on the button ready to go with a good spares package included. NB: This is a used 'Race Car' not a garaged show car, it has been used and abused for 27 years.

  10. I thought it might be a bit busier with everyone being indoors but it's the same with other forums I look at. Spent a week getting the G60 up and running, MOT'd and cleaned to go to events this year. Now it's back under wraps☹️
