Good day all!
It has been pretty much seven years since I have posted here on the forum about my gravel Clio rs 172.
Basically, I have raced it in snow, ice, and gravel. I was not kind at all to it.
It does have quite a few special bits to it, and it even has a special VIN number.
Having recently sold my MK2.5 MX-5 I was on the verge of swapping to a 135i for another fast-ish road car.
At the last second though, I had a change of heart and decided to propose buying an older hot hatch and converting it into a rallycross car to race in the amateur league next...
Thought I would start this thread as a record of my car in competition.
It started as a standard 182 Cup and I had the intention of buying it to sell on but I decided to keep it and turn it into a rally car. I used to sprint and hillclimb around the South West along side @GrahamV182 . I had a...
] A few months back now I bought a msa logbooked clio rolling shell.
The plan was to buy a donar car for the engine and brakes and make one car out of the two.
I ended up buying this 172 cup off eBay, it had bucket seats, coilovers and sabelt wheel.
But I got offered to much profit on the...
So two weeks ago me and my girlfriend (Alex) bought a ph1 172 car with a full weld in roll cage by Custom Cages. We wanted it as a project to do over the summer break whilst off University and our intention is to have it as a track only car and maybe compete in it one day .
The pics below show...
Hi all 😌
Just posting a thread about the journey I'm going to take from taking my little road standard Clio, & get it race ready for AutoSOLO's and RallyCross, & everything in between! :yum:
Please feel free to comment & offer advice, this will be my first time doing anything like this...
A quick report on the Southdowns stages rally 2017 at the famous Goodwood motor racing circuit. A drive up to Chichester on Friday to be ready for a very early start on Saturday morning. The weather forecast looked cold and variable and as it turned out this was not to far off! The temperature...
Hi, turning my cup into a rally car and have a cage going in over the next few weeks but as I strip the car what happens to the little sensors in the A pillars? Can they be cut out? Can the alarm be deactivated permanently?
Any help much appreciated as usual!
So I have posted asking for ideas but time and circumstances has over taken me!
I normally race an Audi TT with 340bhp
but recently during an event the new hybrid turbo blew and I'm having it replaced. However I compete in the ASWMC Hillclimb & sprint rounds and had a sprint at Treloy nr...
I'm looking for advise as to what to do with my Clio Cup 182. I bought it on a whim as it was too good to miss but....
I already sprint this..
Co-drive in this
And just bought this and already sprinted it!
So what do I do with the Clio? Invest money and turn it into a Rally Car...
After a number of years on the forum picking up lots of useful information and reading many impressive project threads I thought I would start a thread on our rally car build.
A bit of background to how we got here. I bought a cat D 172 cup about 5 years ago as a runabout and trackday toy but...

I may as well try and start a bit of a build thread for my Clio stage rally car.
A few of you know that I was competing in Sprints and hillclimbs in my original cup car and had some pretty good results in 2014. I had a lot of fun with quite a few class wins, 1 track record (Wigan), 2nd overall...
Running a 172 for road rallying, so ride height is up.
Looking to swap the 6" and helper spring out for a 10".
Just looking for advised spring rates. Currently running 335lbs (KTec)
I've been advised 190lbs.
Any help would be great!
