Freeborough probably got the (ex-Nurburgring??), ex-Corsica, ex-Lydden rallycross Gp6 GRX5D for a song, maybe as a rolling shell.

It is documented that Freeborough's rallycross car ( not his Works spec / built rally car EDB 90C ) was built from an ex Works shell bought for 25 quid.

The surviving Dunham and Haines car is definitely a MK1 version of GRX5D albeit with a Mk2 grille and rear lights fitted.

Talking of rallycross. A couple of snaps before the sport went mega costly.

At least the Minor's Mini related. :)

Dave, agreed, autocross and rallycross was fantastic fun in the sixties and seventies. What happened rallycross over here was the arrival of the MG Metro 6R4. I still can remember well Ronnie White saying that 4-wheel drive will destroy the sport and ruin it for the clubman racer and he was proved right. I remember back then every event had always over hundred entries and now twenty-five would be a full entry :(

Just finished ready for the 1973 Scottish Autocross season, outside my Bodyshop,
as part sponsor, spanner man and body repairer :o we went on to win both Scottish
Autocross championships, also Rallycrossed at Boyds Quarry,Croft and Knockhill.

Image

body repairs were regularly required :? :cry:

Image

couple of weeks later trying hard at Knockhill,

got to agree with Supersonic on the costs of Rallycross remember at Kirkiston we were spannering
for another Scottish driver when he out drove John Welch in his 4WD Getrag Escort with a 2WD MK1
Escort,and the ensuing argument :twisted: :twisted: :!:
For me enough was enough when we started looking at hand cut tyres.

The Count :lol: :roll:
