Having Madly fallen in love with the Ford RS200 (yet again) I happened to stumble across 2 of the Best RS200s I’ve ever seen.
The First is probably a well known RS200, the Doran RS200.
Starting With Pat Doran’s RS200 E2 he Ran in the European Rallycross series in 1991 and 1992.
Then it’s on to Pat’s Son, Liam Doran’s Pikes Peak RS200. This is the First one, Actually a Playable car in Dirt 3 (albeit without the Aero Kit.) I think this is one of the Best RS200s Visually.
It then got a minor update.
Although that Minor update moved power up to 925, added some crazy aero, and was a pretty good Pikes Peak car, too.
This RS200 though, I think will be quite Unknown. The RS200 IMSA GTO. Owned by Jeff Elghanayan Marco Polo Motorsports. Yes, that was the Team Name. Cosworth BDT-E Turbocharged Engine.
It was Owned by the team from 1989 to 1991, in which, out of 38 possible races, it entered 3.
3 entire races.
0 Races in 1989, despite saying it would enter in the last 3 races of 1989. Joe Varde raced the Car in 1990. He raced in 1 race, Medowlands. He drove for 5 laps, and finished 27th out of 30. For 1991, Wayne Cerbo took the reigns. He Competed in 2 races that year. He Competed at Mid-Ohio, Completed 3 laps, and finished 40th… out of 41. And in it’s greatest Achievement, Finished 16th out of 29 at Del Mar… 3 laps down.
This is my Favourite IMSA GTO Car.
