About the driver
What is the history of your car? How did you come to own it, or drive it this weekend?
Built by Prod rive as part of the Subaru World Rally Team, driven by Colin McRae to win Network Q RAC Rally GB 1997 and won the Manufacturers Championship for Subaru. I bought it in 2012 and fully restored it to exact specification as used by Colin. The car has featured at several notable events since including Goodwood Festival of Speed, Salon Privé and London Classic.
