I / my company was originally contracted by International Motors in 2001 to develop the Daihatsu Sirion Rally 2 and Rally 4 for the UK market. The brief was to improve the performance and handling together with a few luxury upgrades. Late 2002 it was the YRV Turbo that they wanted spicing up into the YRV Turbo 130.
In October 2002 International Motors entered 4 Daihatsu into the Oxford to Athens World Cup Rally. One Cuore, one Sirion 1.3SL and two Sirion Rally 2. A few years ago, I was fortunate to buy S200WRC, one of the WCR Sirion Rally 2. Driven by David Winstanley, as they got to Greece it was lying 1st in class and 3rd overall, until he had a little problem with a Mercedes. I am currently halfway through rebuilding it and will post photos etc. soon.
I look forward to joining you all.
