During its 2-year rallying life, this car has started 16 BTRDA forest events with only 2 DNF's due to 1 CV joint and 1 shaft – the shafts were replaced a few events ago with brand new Peugeot items.

This car runs perfectly and it's doubtful you would be able to find a better package for this money.

It is a very high specification clubman car with the right balance of reliability, budget and performance.

This car can be driven at the limit all day as it has been developed with that in mind to give maximum enjoyment and the best possible results.

Rob Price has owned and rallied 205 Gti's for about 8 years, building, preparing and developing the cars with expert advice, guidance, support from all the right people, paticularly AB Motorsport and Richard Longman.

Lamp pod and spares package available by separate negotiation.

Please call if you the specification isn't quite for you want as Rob is happy to consider selling part complete or even breaking if enough interest.
