Circuit Deja Vu Easter weekend Killarney 2017

Post  JOB on Sat Jan 28, 2017 6:43 pm

The same crew are organising a similar type event for Killarney next Easter. The focus this time is Group B and in particular the Rothmans era. Saeed Al Hajri has been announced as attending. So it looks like my Rothmans collection will eventually break cover.

I have spoken to a number of people and a list of the Rothmans car that competed on this Island is being compiled so feel free to add your tuppence worth and in particular photos . I am a member of the Rothmans Racing group on Facebook so I will stick my neck out and say there are not that many Rothmans photos in public circulation that I have not seen. Two Rothmans cars that are difficult to find photos of are Al Hajri Cork 20 Sierra and James Cullen Donegal Sierra ( Rothmans but not Rothmans sponsored). Piotr in Poland has promised to get the third of the Coleman Rothmans M3 trilogy from Donegal done.

Good ol' Dusty Bin! Don't know what will be the bigger attraction - him or James' collection.

Just checking on Rothmans cars campaigned in Ireland. we think we have them all but just to be sure :
1980 Vatanen RS1800 COI
1981 Airikkala RS1800 COI
1981 Wilson RS1800 COI
1982 McRae Ascona COI
1982 Toivonen Ascona COI
1983 McRae Ascona COI
1983 McRae Manta Ulster
1983 Toivonen Ascona COI
1984 Toivonen Porsche COI
1985 Coleman Porsche COI, Donegal,Cork
1985 Beguin Porsche COI
1986 Coleman Porsche Galway,COI
1986 Coleman 6R4 Donegal, Cork
1986 Al Hajiri Porsch COI
1986 J McRae 6R4 COI, Ulster
1987 Coleman M3 COI,Donegal,Cork
1987 Duez M3 COI
1989 Al Hajiri Sierra Cork

In addition there were outings on the Manx between 1980 and 1986 and again in 1991, a West Cork rally in 1985 used as a test by Coleman in the Porsche and a Tour de Corse outing for Coleman in 1985. James Cullen ran a Sierra in 1990 in Rothmans colours but not livery or sponsorship.

Any or all extra info appreciated.

Well spotted -Galway 1986 for Al Hajiri in the porker. We had it but I missed it on the above list. Talk to me about Lovell - not sure he ever drove a Rothmans car but open to correction .

When I seen this thread James I was thinking about the Rothmans team being in Sligo one year. I asked a few people and I got no joy so I started to doubt myself as I would have being young. Was delighted when I got answer today that they come as part of public awareness when Billy started with them. They ran as course cars. Some Walsh man that used to help Billy should know more and possibly have pictures. I dont know the chap.

That would be Tom Walsh, a former COC on Rally Ireland and very involved with the Billy Coleman Award. Was one of the key players in Billys career over the years

Looking like two/three old faithfuls - Coleman/McRae and Blomqvist and then the two jokers in the pack Al Hajri and Beguin.

What about the Rothmans Mantas which were used as course cars. Think they were replicas 400s rather than actual 400s. I have a set of Rothmans Sierra Decals too!

Road cars with wide arches put on them and a cage fitted - difficult to do a proper model unless u start playing with the tyres/wheels/axles.


What Sierra decals are those Rory.

Don't have a picture of the model to hand but have these photos of the car which I think makes the car look purposeful.
