Introducting the Rally Team


Introducing the supported rally team.

We first supported Tim Baker in his Talbot Sunbeam for the Mully Rally in October 2022.  Since then we've confirmed support for Tim and Neil for the 2023 season including their assault on the Heart of England Stage Rally Championship.  The pair are also competing in the Challenge sponsored by Ex-pressed Steel Panels and Neil is registered for the Broughton & Bretton Motor Club co-drivers' championship.

The car is a 1980 Talbot Sunbeam with the following spec:

Shell: Talbot Sunbeam 3-door hatchback with Series 2 lights and grille. Modifications include seam-welding, weld-in roll cage and alloy wheel arches

Engine: 2481cc Millington XE, Simpson custom exhaust

Transmission: Sadev 6 speed sequential, rear wheel drive, 4-link Atlas axle with limited slip differential

Suspension: Proflex

Brakes: AP Racing

Wheels: 15" diameter Revolution. 7" width for wet tyres, 8" width for dry tyres 

Equipment: Cobra seats, Stilo intercom, plumbed in fire extinguisher
