Description

Back in the mid to late 1990's if you wanted to win the British Junior Rally Championship you had to go and see Dick Archer.
As Wizard Motorsport he was notorious for building the quickest and most competitive Rally Cars, even going as far as to register as a Manufacturer with the DVLA to take full advantage of Homologation requirements. This car's V5 actually states 'Wizard' where you would expect to see Vauxhall !
Cumbrian ace Stuart Egglestone narrowly missed out on the title in 1997 in a Sister car (P20 WMS), in 1998 he commissioned the a new build of this LHD car (R20 WMS) winning the Championship and going on to a seat with the Ford Works team for 1999.
Daniel Harper became the next owner and finished the 1999 Tour of Mull in 5th overall, going one better in 2000 to finish an outstanding 4th.
The car has been upgraded to a more Clubman Group A specification over the years but still retains most of it's original parts.
