Volvo and Sierra for me.

One of the ex-BTCC Volvo Estates ran in the Australian Super Touring Championsip in 1995 and finished 8th in the hands of Tony Scott.

I was always a fan of the RS500 Cosworths and I think this one has an Australian connection as well - I am sure that Robb Gravett won the 1990 BTCC in a Sierra built by Dick Johnson Racing in Australia.

Thanks for the positive comments, really pleased with the Primera's, Sierra and the Volvo's. Can't believe how much better the HPI Volvo's are compared to the Minichamps verisons.

A couple more I forgot to add the other day:

Not often I would say an Audi is my favourite, but of these two it definitely is - neither are as good as the Sierra though!

another fan of the Escort. Interesting to see the front has the wide arches/wider track while the rear is standard, was there a reason for this?

I like the 19 - but the wheels look huge!
