Rover SD1 TWR Group A ‘Bastos’ RHD, 1985 (former 1983 Group 2 Rally Car RHD)
Currently subject to a total restoration by Woodham Mortimer Ltd to FIA Group A Touring Car specification. (Full specification on request) Completion scheduled for spring 2020 in readiness for the 2020 season.
Originally one of three cars built by the Austin-Rover Competitions Department for the 1983 Paris-Peking Rally which was subsequently cancelled. The Rover was then used on the 1983 ‘Trophee Jean Francois Piot’ in France achieving 3rd overall.
Later used for the 1984 Silva Stages Rally driven by Tom Walkinshaw/John Davenport and also the 1984 National Breakdown Rally again driven by Walkinshaw/Davenport. The Rover then appeared as part of the Austin Rover Middle East Rally Team that entered the 1984 Oman and Dubai Rallies.
After use in competition Rallies, Ian 'Del' Lines was offered the complete Austin-Rover Middle East Rally Team package in 1985, still located in Dubai. This consisted of three Group 2 SD1 Rally cars, a recce car, the Tony Pond/Rob Arthur car (this car) and the Abdullah Omar/John Daniel car.
The car was restored in 1987 using a genuine Tom Walkinshaw Ex-'Bastos' shell, number TWR 015 that was one of nineteen Works shells built by Tom Walkinshaw Racing to compete in the Group A European Touring Car Championship, constructed in 1985, chassis 15 was painted in full 1985 Bastos livery and raced by Jeff Allam, Armin Hahne and John-Louis Schlesser in various ETCC races throughout the year.

Previously owned by Austin-Rover Motor Sport, there is a large history file containing original Austin-Rover documentation.
Eligible for many Historic Motor Sport events including Motor Racing Legends Series.
A full race support package is also available, price on request.
