Automation Sunday Cup - Stage 2 (CLOSED FOR ENTRIES)


Holford & Stern Classic Car Sales
18th May 1999

For sale: 1987 Erin Merna XR-Cup Edition

Erin’s 4th generation of its compact hatchback-saloon launched in 1983, and saw a number of sportier variants released during its production run. In celebration of its success in the British Touring Car Championship during the mid-eighties, the company launched this: the XR-Cup Edition.

The ‘XR’ badge has classically denoted any road-going model fitted with motorsport-derived parts and tuned in the name of performance, and it’s no different here. Many parts were based off of those used on Group A touring car version of the Merna, including it’s turbocharged engine. It’s that connection that give it that name ‘Cup Edition’.

Weight was saved by only fitting 4 seats and keeping luxuries fairly limited, while aerodynamic bodywork was fitted - mainly for the aesthetics - in the name of better performance. The result was a car that was a lot faster than any other hot hatch of the day, and allowed buyers to experience track-esque performance on a budget.

Notes on condition
This example, number 48 of 500 built, is overall in very good condition, with a validated mileage of 23,459 miles. All original documentation is included, including full service history, parts purchase/fitting receipts and MOT history. Interior is in great condition, with only minor wear and tear on the steering wheel, door handles and center console. Comes fitted with its original factory cassette stereo, though the speakers have been replaced with aftermarket options.

The short of it:
2.0l Turbo i4 producing 200hp, FWD, 0-60 in 7.1s.



1997 SARA 4 Turini for sale directly by manufacturer

The press relations service of SARA offers for sale the SARA 4 Turini that has been used as a press demonstrator.

It has only 20 000 miles, but, to be honest, press guys do not treat the vehicles kindly. The car has been refurbished at the factory, up to a “fair” condition, and is sold with a 3 months guarantee.

It features the Modulor 500 in line 4 engine in its 16v variant, with over 180 hp (certified thru in-factory dyno testing).

This is a rare opportunity to get a rev-happy SARA 4, with factory guaranteeing it is at least as good as new, for a discounted price.


SARA Gentlemen club to participate in ASC

Lyon, 1999 - press release

Antoine Watteau, chief platform engineer at SARA, and Jean Turini, the famed driver from SARA official team in the 80’s (and son of Amédée Turini) have informed the SARA headquarters that they will engage their team in the Automation Sunday Cup.

While this adventure is not backed by the factory, SARA wished these gentlemen the best in the competition, knowing that they will show in this hobby the same attention to details and dedication they show when working on our new products here at SARA


Team: Corny Street Motors (or Team CSM for short)

Driver: Charlie “Guile” Nash

Team Chief: Walter “Wayward” Nash

Who are these madmen? If you followed the American motor scene throughly, you are bound to having seen one of CSM’s mental cars. With a business motto like “we put everything on the roads”, and ad slogans like “We put the “gravel” in “grocery getter””, it’s already impressive that company hasn’t gone under from its own insanity-driven ways.

Still, even a bonkers company like CSM can benefit from racing prowless. However, they’re not fielding a car of their own. Why? Well, chalk it up to painful memories. Company founder Walter Nash’s memories, to be precise. During the 1986 edition of the Dakar rally, Walter was forced to employ evasive maneuvers to avoid a wild turkey (yes, a turkey. Don’t ask), putting his Nash S-F through several houses in an African village in the process.

So when eager racing fan and Walter’s son Charlie approached him to enter a CSM-backed team in the prestigious Automation Sunday Cup, Walter answered with “you can race anything you like, so as long as it doesn’t come from our production lines”. Lord have mercy on this fool, trying to prove Daddy wrong when he’s already more than a few screws loose…

Two Old LLA’s For Sale

Both are old '82 LLA Comet Ti’s, a small sports car produced from 1982 to 1986. It had a 2.0 4 Cyl engine producing 115 Bhp. This was mounted in the middle of the car, driving the rear wheels.

Both for sale are of the same year. There is a beige car with 167K miles on the clock. This has some mould in the interior and the seals on the T-Top roof leak. However the mechanical’s of the car are all great with a smooth gearbox and new bushings on all corners meaning the handling isn’t the worst, may need new shocks though. The other isn’t pictured, but is in electric blue, The interior is in slightly better condition however still suffers from the T-Top leak (a common problem on the first gen comets). Other than that small issue is pretty much in the same condition as the other car.

Due to the condition of both vehicles we are willing to sell them for $7500 each (or best offer) We even will throw in a set of new tyres if wanted.


Team Beaten Horse

He was the son of the driver of the infamous #50 car in the 1966 BRC, that car being a modified Rado Communt/Sofa 1100. He never participated in his fathers mid 90s attempt to join the group racing across europe, and so would never see his father again after the plane took off that day. But he’s decided to honor his legacy by joining the Sunday Cup.

Driver Name: Scott Wilford


Rare 1995 Mitsushita Boarilla GTi For Sale

1995 Mitsushita Boarilla GTi

I’m selling my dad’s old Boarilla here since he stopped driving. It’s a GOLD 1995 model with 101,700km on the clock but still drives like new. Might be slightly ropey on the outside and the inside but I must say the motor is an absolute peach of a powerplant. It comes with the world famous 4AT0-FU20 motor also known as Torqueless Wonder, breathing naturally and screaming like a sumbitch, powering the front wheel through slick gearbox. It’s 145 factory horsepower is easily good for more with a few tweaks and being light like a feather this thing flies. I’ll let it go for $8,462. Very reasonable price for such a rare sporty motor right?


1995 Matteo Miglia Excelsior Rosso Corsa - 8715$A

Regretful sale. 3rd kid is on the way and my baby only has 4 seats.
210hp, manual and drives very nice, as Matteo Miglia drivers would know.
Owned since new, 45000 miles, always garaged. Full service log.
Back seats may have some wear (baby seat) and stains (kids) but otherwise runs no problem.

Can’t budge on price, would consider trading for a wagon or 5 seater.

Serious buyers only call me during office hours +61 4 **** ****.
