Great work Ads. We’ll be in much better shape for RoR now and with a lot more understanding of the car.

So what’s the team members been upto over lockdown you ask?!
Well we will start with the teams Peugeot 206 GTI 140.
The car was beginning to show real signs of age and un love, this cars been a real work horse over the years with various members cutting their teeth driving it once gaining their race licences and it was in desperate need of a re fresh. So Keith set about giving it some much needed love.

Car has been stripped, wiring loom thinned out, sound deadening removed, dash flocked, blower unit reinstalled, cage and interior painted, exterior tidied up, a full wrap in team colours, brake overhaul, door cards, new seat, harness and many other bits to get it to a great standard again πŸ‘ŒπŸΌ

Looking forward to seeing this out on track again πŸš™πŸ’¨

Fair play, looks like you have put a good shift in πŸ’ͺ might be a little bigger in my mirrors now πŸ˜‰

Looking factory. πŸ”₯ 😎

Unfortunately the main bulk of our season has been cancelled. However we are hopeful that we’ll get approval for the Birkett Relay so that the inter services team championship can be held and after that the Race of Remembrance. ... See MoreSee Less

The Peugeot is progressing, with the interior pretty much finished now. The finishing piece was a great set of door cards from Simon at Track Car Door Cards, who's very kindly supported the RNRMCRT during our rebuild of the team's 206 GTi. ... See MoreSee Less

A long overdue brake upgrade to the team's Peugeot 206 Gti. Gone are the standard brake lines, original calipers and master cylinder. These have been upgraded to a full set of HEL Performance braided lines, Carbone Lorraine CL Brakes UK RC6 front pads, 23mm master cylinder and Peugeot 306 GTi6 front calipers. Fluid has also been refreshed with Motul RBF600 fluid from Opie Oils.
