I wish it was my other car! My friend used to have an ex-works rally version, it was well quick. He put it on a rolling road and it nearly broke the rollers. It was at about 310BHP at the wheels when the retaining straps broke and nearly cattapulted the car into the wall.
He now drives a Vauxhall Astra rally car and an EVO IV for the road. I do all the spanner work for him and get to test drive them.
We're going to a clubman rally in a couple of weeks time up near Blackpool, I'm being the mechanic on that event, the next one I'll be co-driver.
Going to get some photo's of some cars in action at the event. It's just a pity that no-one rallies Renaults at this meeting.
Currently in the coach man's garage:
Bloody big coach (460 BHP and under 8mpg) & Laguna I phase II 2.0 RXE (dimised) and a Ford Mondeo Ghia-X 2.5 V6 '99.
