172 Cup Sprint/Track car


ClioSport Club Member
I'm interested to see what other members feel this car is worth, as I haven't used the car since brands in October 2017 and before that was Bedford in October 2016.

It does need an MOT, which I can arrange no problem. It's also overdue a cambelt change and needs new engine oil as it's done 3 track days since the last change it had.

Spec as follows

2002 Car, 108,000 miles
I bought the car stock in 2011 at 106,300m and have slowly built it up over time. I must say it's the most fun you can have in a car on track, especially in the wet. As I said, I don't make the time to use it, so it's sat still for another 12 months. I have used the car for 4 track days and 2 sprints.

6 point Sparco Cage fully welded by Elweld Fabrications
OMP Seat with side mounts and Sabelt harness, welded seat rails
1.5L Fire Extinguisher in passenger footwell
Odyssey Red Top 30 Battery with cage, relocated to passenger footwell.
Flocked dashboard, cut around cage neatly
Deep dish LMA steering wheel and boss kit

BMC CDA air filter with custom pipe work, cold air fed
K tec manifold back exhaust with carbon trim in bumper
Ktec Engine Mounts and Powerflex Dogbone
Polyurethane Exhaust Mounts
Fabricated Oil catch tank with -10 breather pipe
New pair of driveshafts and Millers gear oil

Bilstein B14 Coilovers with Solid Top Mounts
Whiteline Rear anti roll bar (one wet day at Brands, like new)
Powerflex Camber Bolts -2.25
Pro laser alignment by Auto Torque 1.5mm toe out
OMP Strut brace front and Unbranded rear

Ferodo DS2500 front pads, braided lines and drilled discs
New Gulf Racing Fluid
PMS Shifter kit
PMS Wheel Stud & Nut kit

15 x 7 OZ F1's with Toyo R1R (good, 50% life)
15 x 6.5 Clio Turbines in white with Yoko AD08R (one wet day at Brands, like new)
Ali Bonnet pins

Laquer peel on bodywork, front wings, bonnet and headlights have been replaced, various small dents around the car, Cambelt overdue, MOT due,

I was thinking this package would be worth around £3,000

Anyone care to advise?

Some updates for this one!

Having stood still for 2.5 years and at times forgetting its sat there, it was decided that the Clio makes a comeback.

As it sat in my compound -


Spare parts storage bin essentially! -


I'm buying the necessary parts and the guys in the workshop nextdoor are carrying out all the work required in exchange for driving it on track.

The job list includes;
Replace alternator due to overcharging and knackering a dry battery.
Replace cambelt kit, dephaser and water pump.
Fit 182 manifold and K-tec link pipe
Replace front ARB bushes
Fit Gripper diff to gearbox

The aim was to complete the car in time for Bedford on the 19th June but unfortunately a delay in receiving the diff from Pure Motorsport and then a lack of bearings meant the car wasn't ready in time.

Engine out

The gearbox is still with Select motorsport who have installed the gripper diff, I am planning to pick this up tomorrow and then the guys can continue work.

Upon reinstallation we discovered the bush that locates in here is no longer fit for purpose and requires replacement.

Could anyone suggest if the Yanoo Bush will fit with the PMS shifter?
