Motor Sport News - - Rally News -

M-sport is sell­ing off its fleet of Volvo recce cars, of­fer­ing fans a rare op­por­tu­nity to buy sen­si­bly priced cars driven by some of the sport’s big­gest names.

The de­fend­ing World Rally cham­pion team is over­haul­ing its fleet of recce cars, mean­ing the Volvos – some of which have been in ser­vice since 2004 – are be­ing made avail­able to the gen­eral pub­lic.

Deputy team prin­ci­pal Rich Mil­lener told MN: “The re­sponse has been amaz­ing, we’ve sold a few of them al­ready. As you can imag­ine, they’re in var­i­ous states, but all peo­ple want to know is who’s driven them.

“We’ve got cars driven by Colin [Mcrae], Car­los [Sainz], Mar­cus [Gron­holm], ba­si­cally most of the sport’s big­gest stars have been through M-sport and they’ve been in these Volvos. I think most of them are go­ing to col­lec­tors, but a few are go­ing to be do­ing some more rec­ces in the fu­ture. It’s a chance to buy a real piece of the sport’s his­tory.”

Any­body in­ter­ested in one of the cars should con­tact Neil Robin­son on 01900 828888.
