Sierra Cosworth built to RS500 spec. Superb race history. SOLD (1986)
|This very well prepared race/track car was originally a road going Sierra Cosworth Reg.No. D365BRS. |
It was raced by Andy Forrest in the Scottish Road Saloons between 1994 and 1996 and won the Championship on each of the 3 seasons.
In 1999 it was raced by Kevin Adam in the Star Cup and won this championship with a 100% unbeaten record.
In 2000 the car was stripped to the bare shell and rebuilt as an RS500 with all the genuine Ford parts and went on to win the turbo class of the Scottish Saloons on 3 occasions.
Currently it has a 540 BHP/ 400 lbs torque engine built by Graham Hathaway, an American ball bearing T4 Turbo by Universal and a straight cut T5 gearbox as used in the TVR challenge.
The management was by Ahmed Bayjoo and includes a Pectel monitoring system.
Currently on slicks with a set of alloys and basically all new wet tyres included. The coil over suspension has never been used since its last rebuild.
No expense has been spared on this car and its reliability and power can be vouched for by any regular racing enthusiast of the 90’s into the millennium and the car is still well known within the racing scene. The potential for this car is for someone to continue racing it and add to its provenance or it could be the ultimate in track day cars.
The condition of the shell is excellent and it must be one of the few racing cars of this type to still have the original chassis number in place at the side of the drivers seat.
The current engine was built in 2002 by Dave Hill [He also who built the Nissan engine when the last owner won the independent Touring Car Trophy] and every year thereafter it has been removed from the vehicle and “topped and tailed" as required. Clearly the original parts were the very best available which meant that it was really just bearings that were required and of course a new oil pump etc.
It runs the correct 8 injectors/plenum and the appropriate software by Pectel along with their monitoring system. The sump is a "big wing" with a 6 litre capacity.
7.5 diff with a special slipper built and supplied by ZF, again the proper thing.
The engine has only done 3 races since the last overhaul which would be approx. 300 miles with practice and qualifying.
Similar with the gearbox which is a T5 modified by Glebe Transmissions exactly same as that used in the TVR challenge series, totally bulletproof.
The cage is a proper welded-in cage by Safety Devices.
The obvious class would be the Ford Saloon Championship. Because of its age it is most probably getting close to being eligible for Classics and of course it is a "production car" in the true sense of the word.
Given the popularity of the Track Days being offered at most of the major tracks, I would have thought this might be where it would end up if Classic racing was not being considered.
If you have a serious interest in the car please call to discuss in more detail.
