Those who are fans of the legendary rally car driver, Colin McRae, can nab a piece of history by bidding on a car he and his family once drove.
According to gtspirit.com, the 1977 Ford Escort MK2 RS1800 Gp4 has been driven in races in all corners of the world since 2006. It was built by Prepfab Motorsport Engineering and had its first victory at the Roger Albert Clark Rally thanks to Jimmy McRae, Colin's father. The car was also tested by Colin himself and later on, at the Colin McRae Memorial Rally, his brother Alister drove it in memory of Colin.
The Ford Escort has seen plenty of races in its lifetime and was even rebuilt in 2009, but despite the fact it took part in rallies up until 2011, it still remains in great condition.
Not only will bidders be fighting for the chance to own a great looking car, complete with Eddie Stobart livery, they'll also get an MSA stage rally logbook, a Historic Rally Vehicle Identity Form and MoT and tax until May 2014, reports motorward.com.
Nick Whale, managing director at Silverstone Auctions, commented on the importance of the car.
"We're incredibly proud to offer a competition car with such provenance," he said. "Given the high octane surroundings of Race Retro the car is a perfect fit and is sure to prove popular with historic motorsports fans."
The car is to go to auction in February next year and is expected to sell for between £65,000 and £85,000.
