1984 Manx Rally Porsche 911 Roger Clark

1984 Porsche 9112SC 1984 Manx Rally Roger Clark & In Grindrod

This was used by Roger as the Triple 0/camera car on the 1984 Manx Rally. In car cameras back then were still in their infancy so they acted as the camera car as well, carrying this on the roof rack. I don’t have any good photos of the car with the camera on to know how it looked. This was a Prodrive run car, but why Roger was running as 000 and not actually in the rally itself is unclear. Even brother Stan doesn't know.

This model has been on the radar for a long time. But trying to get the Spark model at a reasonable price has been prohibitive. There is the prospect of looking for at least four to cover numerous people’s collections, but they all know it’s not going to be a cheap conversion. Recently after another ebay search for one I got one for a very reasonable price.

Removing the surplus decals was easy enough, I had some new door plates, adding the roof rack and aerials, the back one looks a bit too heavy so I might change that one and again something different for collectors of Roger Clark and/or Manx Rally cars. This one is off to Roger’s brother Stan. Chris

Awesome car and model. The Rothmans livery is probably one of the top 3 most iconic liveries of the Stuttgart brand.

Nice work Chris considering the relative lack of pictures. Pity there is not more information on the camera set-up.

Another one that I really like. Rothmans on a 911, excellent. Great work on the conversion.

You know why Italians speak with their hands? Because they have to work a lot on their engines.

Remember that year well. Took me about a month to dry out after watching at Brandywell!

The incar dvd/video of Roger's drive is still available:

Interesting that he wasnt entered in the rally never really though about it at the time as he did the RAC but entered in the rally and without the roof camera in 84.
