Buy The Car That Dominated the 2000 BTCC
In 2000 Alain Menu, Anthony Reid and Rickard Rydell dominated the British Touring Car Championship in Prodrive-built Ford Mondeo Super Tourers, claiming a perfect three-for-three when they finished the championship with Menu champion, Reid second and Rydell third. You’ll have to supply the talent, skill, experience and bravery, but you’ll be able to buy one of their cars, when it heads up for sale at Silverstone Auctions’ upcoming Race Retro & Classic Car Sale.
Prodrive built four cars for the season and one didn’t survive it, making this car, Rydell’s, one of just three. In it, Rydell won three rounds during the 2000 season, and spent most of the other races swapping places on the podium with Menu or Reid.
Its racing career continued when its current owner bought it and began campaigning it successfully in historic touring car racing, including the Silverstone Classic.
Professionally-maintained, the car is not only significant and highly-collectable, but ready to race and equipped with a full set of Works spares and parts for racing.
Check out the full details over at Silverstone Auctions’ official website here. Their Race Retro & Classic Car Sale will be held on the 22nd of February, 2014, at Stoneleigh Park.
