Tracing and documenting the competition history of Ford Sierra Cosworth C234 HVW...

I've been doing some research into the long and eventful competition history of C234 HVW, trying to piece together a comprehensive portfolio of it's various owners/drivers and their championship and event success or otherwise!

So far, this is what I have pieced together...
  • One of the first Sierra Cosworths built late (October) 1985.
  • Originally FIA homologated in Group B for the 1986 season.
  • Built by Ford Motorsport, Boreham, Essex in late 1985, along with 6 more cars for the Securicor Challenge.
  • Finished a close 2nd (behind Phil Collins, C240 HVW) in the Securicor Challenge, driven by 3 times National Rally Champion Chris Mellors.
  • Debuted the Sierra on the WRC for Ford Motorsport on the RAC in December 1986.
  • Run by multiple Irish Rally Champion Bertie Fisher on the 1987 Manx International, lead Group N until SS35 - DNF (electrical)
  • Won the British Rally Championship (Group N) with Gwyndaf Evans/Howard Davis in 1988, running on the RAC the same year for Gwyndaf's first attempt (of approx 20) leading Group N for 3 days, before an off in Kielder)

If you know anymore history on this car, please get in touch ;-)
