Three Metro Turbos to be reunited in Historic Touring Car Challenge
For the first time in more than 30 years, three MG Metro Turbos will race together in the Historic Touring Car Challenge at the Silverstone Classic.
Patrick Watts, part of the works Austin Rover team in period, has found and restored the three cars and is hopeful of finding the remaining two of the five originally built.
Watts will share with Nick Swift, while Malcolm Harrison and Paul Taft will share the second Computervision car, recently found in Greece by Watts. The third car, back from Germany, will be driven by Till Bechtolsheimer, whose grandfather’s company sponsored the car for Armin Hahne in the 1984 German Touring Car Championship.
“There is one car we are hoping to retrieve from the USA where it ran in the IMSA series. The last one is in the UK, and I am close to finding it,” said Watts.
