A somewhat reluctant sale of my 309 GTI (when did you last see one?) which is eligible for everything and indeed has been blessed to receive invites to many events over the last few years. Indeed at this years Goodwood Festival of Speed rally stage it was 6th quickest 2wd in timed runs and quickest none kit car front wheel drive.
Originally being built from a Peugeot Sport UK kit for Mark Wagstaff and making a class-winning competition debut in the 1988 Wexford Rally. Not only was this a fantastic result but this is also believed to be the first instance of a Group N win for the 309 GTi in the UK.
It was then campaigned within the Peugeot Challenge in 1989 with the highlight of the year coming in the form of a Peugeot category win on the ’89 Manx Rally.A strong season saw mark gain 3rd O/A in the Challenge for 1989. The vehicle was then sold on to another well-known driver, Simon Nutter, who carried on the car’s record in the Peugeot Challenge against the late Richard Burns amongst other drivers. Sadly, a large accident during the season put an end to any title hopes, though the car made a full recovery. Between 1992 and 1995, it was campaigned – with relatively successful results – by Leigh Armstrong in BTRDA events, and was then subsequently passed through a number of other owners before being laid-up in the early 2000s.
Discovered only five miles from my home in North Wales during 2020, the decision was made to retrieve the vehicle and dispatch it immediately for a comprehensive restoration at the hands of RallyPrep in Cornwall, with the aim of keeping the car as original as possible, but bringing it up to full current FIA Regulations standard.
As a huge fan of Richard Burns I decided to have it finished in the livery of his 1991 RAC Rally 309 GTi, this example – now bearing the registration of E7 KKV – holds full FIA International Historic paperwork, giving access to rally, show and competition events the world over, including the Festival of Speed, Carfest, Silverstone Classic, Rally Legend in Italy, the McRae 25 and many, many more.
Along with the aforementioned FIA HTP papers, the car has a current MOT Certificate

Bespoke wiring loom. Period works-type trip meter mount with period-correct Terratrip 404

The car has just been fully detailed and is ready to go.
I may take something cheaper plus cash in p/x, ideally Mk1 Escort or Sunbeam
