Guernsey’s Mod Sports Monster !

Escort BDH ace & Guernsey Hillclimb class record-holder John Dunne chose last Monday’s event at Le Val Des Terres to debut his new toy. The car is a ex.Thundersports Honda Prelude with an ex. Andy Rouse Cosworth RS500 engine putting out over 500bhp !

The wet conditions on the Terres Hill meant that it was a fairly subdued debut for John, but no doubt he will get to grips with this beasty pretty quickly and will be slinging it around in his usual crowd-pleasing style before long.

Read about the car in this thread on the excellent uphillracers.com forum (no registration necessary, though it is recommended) !
