It's 58 years ago since Paddy Hopkirk & Henry Lidden won the Monte in a tiny little Mini, 1071cc and perhaps not quite 80bhp...how times have changed, but still great to watch thumbs

He is very special clap

Like Lewis Hamilton they are the men of the moment in their respective disciplines and we are lucky to be able to share their genius on the small screen.

Certainly seems to have fallen out of favour.


I lost interest as the british motor industry collapsed and there were no longer british manufacturers teamns involved.

I'm not sure. But I watched the development video for the Puma and it was built by MSport in Poland.
Must say I enjoyed watching Monte Carlo with the new hybrid cars. No spoilers but the Puma is looking like a very competitive car.

I think Ford make engines at Dagenham. The Bridgend engine plant closed in 2020.

Transit Van manufacture in Southampton ceased in 2013.

At the end of the Duratecs life Bridgend were making 750000 engines the plus four was very British. I think its only Linwood now make gearboxes and Dagenham some diesel engines...
