Default Dil 999

Its not Saeed's car. This car is a Sutton car and was, I believe, DL's car used in the Jordan Rally. Saeed car ie the one he used for the ME Championship, was an ex-works A2. His Recce car was an ex-works Gp4 car with A1 bits (which a friend used to own) and panels and was painted in plain white. Tony

Many thanks for that Tony, interesting stuff If I remember right, didn't Llewellin also do the 1985 Cyprus rally in a Rothmans A2?

DL Audi on the first Cyprus Rally he did with Sutton (1985?) was a 200 Coupe running A2 wheels. They had big problems with the tires bending the front wings as wheels were too wide for a coupe wing. Any other entries, do not know, so could be possible.Tony

Dug out some old 'Rally Sport' mags today to refresh my memory. The only information I can find is that Llewellin did compete and finish third on the Cyprus rally in 1988 in his coupe quattro 44 XMN, painted up in 'Rothmans' colours possibly as a one off for that event only. He was the outright winner the previous year in the same car when it was still in it's 'Gemini' colours.

Scanned some pictures, apologies for the poor quality:
