Item Year Information

YEAR INFORMATION
1982 The launch of the BL Metro has proved extremely successful and it is now being raced regularly by enthusiasts throughout the country. The Unipart Challenge, open to Metro entries only, featured 15 races and there were at least 25 cars starting at each round. The regulations clearly stated that the basic Metro bodywork and mechanicals were to be retained. Reaching speeds about 120 mph down some fast straights great demands were placed on both the driver's and mechanic's skills.
1983 The Austin Metro is an extremely successful car, now being raced regularly by enthusiasts. The 1982 Metro Challenge was sponsored by Unipart and attracted considerable entries including the McCain Oven Chips sponsored car drive by Chris Lewis. These cars were racing at 15 separate meetings from March through to October.
