Imagine driving not just a rally car every day, but a Martini Racing rally car from the heyday of high-speed gravel pace. Not just a Martini Racing rally car… but a Porsche too!
The dream is real with a new sweeps from UK firm Classic Car Win. Entries are via text for about $7 each — with details below.
For those outside the UK, the photos are still a visual feast. This 924 is flawless.
Porsche 924 Martini Rally Car
CLASSIC CAR WIN LAUNCHES ITS FIRST COMPETITION WITH A PORSCHE!
CLASSIC CAR WIN is giving away a rebuilt 1981 Porsche 924 Historic Rally Car (cat 3) as their first competition give-away as they launch their new venture.
The car itself has lovingly undergone an 8 year nut and bolt restoration at the hands of its creator. This included the engine and gearbox fully rebuilt by the local Porsche main Dealer. Not only does the car look the part by being decorated in the famous “Martini Racing” colours but also performs with Twin Webber 45 Race carburettors fitted to a Jam engineering manifold!
The detailing on the car is also very impressive with the underside of the car displaying as much care as the engine bay. This detailing is borne out by the fact that the Martini livery is part of the actual paintwork and not decals!
NEC CLASSIC MOTOR SHOW
The car will be prominently displayed at this year’s NEC Classic Motor Show from the 14th – 16th November (Stand 9-143 at the 8/9 link). The show’s organisers, Clarion Events, are excited by its inclusion as they see the competition and the distinct look of the car as real crowd pleasers. In readiness for the Classic Motor Show the car has been prepared, detailed and undergone a professional studio photo-shoot by 4 Star Classics of Guildford. Adam Jackson from Chesterfield the car’s creator will also be attending as the guest of CLASSIC CAR WIN.
“From day one I have been an avid fan of the classic car show “Wheeler Dealers” and I do feel for Edd (China) at times when you see the cars Mike (Brewer) brings him to work on. When I began this project I didn’t really realise what it would take but looking back I am truly glad I did it!” – Adam Jackson
Entry will be via premium SMS run by Cymba and starts on Saturday the 1st November and closes 31/01/2015 with the draw taking place soon after. The cost to enter is £2 (plus one standard message rate) and the entrant will be then given the opportunity to be given 3 entries for £4 via the SMS reply message. For those who are without a mobile phone, entry can also be made via the CLASSIC CAR WIN website
Speaking with the Director and Founder of CLASSIC CAR WIN Michael Breen about the Porsche and the future for the competition:
“It’s a great car that really engages the driver – truly a one off! This is an exciting time and there seems to be a real feel good factor to it all – we are receiving lots of positive feedback already. If the Classic Car community likes what we are doing and the competition is well received then there is no reason why we won’t shorten the competition entry times and give away more great cars. Good luck to all that enter, I look forward to meeting the Winner!”
