Footnotes

  • This Datapost-liveried Fiesta 1300 Group 1 has been built as an exacting replica of Alan Curnow's 1980 British Saloon Car Championship class-winning car. Both Alan and Richard Longman were present at the car's first Goodwood outing and were suitably impressed with the build quality and level of detail. The full Datapost livery was applied by JellyFish Design, and both Alan's and Richard's signatures adorn the passenger door.

    Built in 2017 to compete in the Motor Racing Legends HTCC and the Gerry Marshall Trophy at the Goodwood Members' Meeting, the car has a current FIA HTP valid until 31st December 2028, and a current Legends Engine Capacity Certificate. In 2018 the Fiesta competed at Goodwood, Donington Park, Silverstone Classic (class win), Oulton Park Gold Cup and again at Goodwood in the 77th Members' Meeting in 2019, with Simon Goodliffe at the wheel.

    No expense was spared with the build, which used premium components and systems. The bodyshell is seam welded and incorporates a bespoke FIA roll cage, while the side and rear windows are 5mm hard-coated Lexan. Powering the car is an all-steel Mountune 1300 cross-flow engine, which produces 132bhp running on split Weber 45DCOE carburettors with Maniflow intake and exhaust (ceramic coated) to original pattern (side-exit and 105db full system). A dynamometer printout is available.
    Other noteworthy features include the following:

    TAG alternator and bespoke ARC hi-torque starter
    Quaife straight-cut transmission and Gripper limited slip differential
    ProAlloy custom high capacity radiator
    Period-correct Bilstein dampers front and rear
    High-ratio steering rack
    6.0x13" RS wheels and Dunlop Post-Historic regulation tyres
    Stack Pro instruments: tachometer, oil pressure, oil and water temperature gauges
    60-litre ATL fuel cell mounted in a bespoke sealed aluminium container
    Lifeline Zero 360 fully plumbed electrically operated fire system
    RaceTech seat and Schroth Enduro six-point harness

    A small spares package of replacement bearings, seals, brake discs, brake pads, electrical system components, etc is included in the sale (buyer to collect) and set-up data and support is available.
