So I've been gathering yet more projects, to join the ever increasing list of vehicles to be resurrected.

Got myself David Higgins Group A 106 Rallye that he competed during the 1994 British Championship.

Peugeot Sport Coventry (UK) commissioned one Group A 106 to contest the 1994 British Championship. Registration number L405URW.

During the course of 1994 the car was technically exported to the Isle of Mann - where it was registered with the MAN106A registration number, for the purposes of competing in the Manx rally (nice PR work - especially with the driver being an Isle of Mann resident).

It was photographed with A106MAN registration number but was only a promotional photo.

Once sold by Peugeot Sport in 95 it was returned to L405URW and the MAN106A registration number was returned to Higgins.

Car and car conversion article.

Car had a reasonably hard life, with it suffering its fair share of hits, with a very hard hit in 2006. Presently trying to source bits....

I remember reading that article in CCC first time out, it was a brilliant wee car. Proper bit of history you have there. Is it still on the original shell?

Great history and I hope you restore it to its former colour scheme, too.

When complete, let me know, please as I'd love to compile a feature on it.

Cracking! Really interesting story/history. My dad had a S1 Rallye road car 20 odd years ago. Stand out moment was chasing a motorbike round the Craigavon roundabouts at full chat, no doubt tripodding most of the time!
