Rare Saxo back out on stages
A one-of-a-kind Citroen Saxo will return to rallying next month in the hands of Andy Gwynne.
The Gloucester driver built the car to S2000-spec, but a loose stone snapped the alternator belt at its last outing in the Brawdy Stages last year and since then the car has undergone a rebuild.
“It’s self-built, mainly as the problem with works stuff is that if you need parts you can’t get hold of them or they’re too expensive,” he said.
The car has had a full engine rebuild and Gwynne has been experimenting with a flat-shift system.
“I just need to get back in the seat now as it’s some car to drive, its got 220bhp,” he added. “I’m really looking forward to getting back out in it as we have so much else going on I don’t get to spend as much time on it as I would like.”
Gwynne – along with Holly Robinson – runs and builds the Gwynnespeed C2 Challenge cars and operates the Gloucester Rally School near Cirencester.
