Skoda Owners Recreate Famous Rally Car

When the Skoda owners club recently joined the Lightcliffe affiliates we had a strong feeling that the partnership was going to flourish.  As well as attending their numerous events over the calendar year and developing an association with a team of like-minded people, it was also discovered that the committee at the club have many hidden talents.


David Whiting who is a founder member of the Northwest branch of the club is one of those rare individuals who can practically build a Skoda from the ground up. With an enviable  knowledge of the internal workings of these machines he would probably win any mastermind competition with flying colours if they could find a researcher with enough knowledge  to compile enough questions.  


One of David’s recent projects, with the help of his son Andy,  was to rebuild the classic Skoda Felicia Rally car which made a name for itself in the 90s achieving third place in the 1996 world Rally championship, F2 class. 


The car pictured here was lovingly put together by father and son with careful attention being paid to the visuals, apart from the Lightcliffe Skoda logo which didnt actually exist in 1996. 


The good news is that this exact car will be available, along with many others,  for all Lighjcliffe customers to view at the forthcoming  2024 classic car day which will be held at the Winwick Road dealership. 


So big thanks to David and Andy for doing such a fantastic job on this cherished car and watch this space for news on the 2024 event.

Clare James Automotive Limited is an Appointed Representative of Automotive Compliance Ltd, who is authorised and regulated by the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA No 497010). Automotive Compliance Ltd’s permissions as a Principal Firm allow Clare James Automotive Limited to act as a credit broker, not as a lender, for the introduction to a limited number of lenders and to act as an agent on behalf of the insurer for insurance distribution activities only.
We can introduce you to a selected panel of lenders, which includes Volkswagen Financial Services. An introduction to a lender does not amount to independent financial advice and we act as their agent for this introduction. Our approach is to introduce you first to Volkswagen Financial Services, who are usually able to offer the best available package for you, taking into account both interest rates and other contributions. If they are unable to make you an offer of finance, we then seek to introduce you to whichever of the other lenders on our panel is able to make the next best offer of finance for you. Our aim is to secure the best deal you are eligible for from our panel of lenders. Lenders may pay a fixed commission to us for introducing you to them, calculated by reference to the vehicle model or amount you borrow. Different lenders may pay different commissions for such introductions, and Volkswagen Financial Services also provide preferential rates to us for the funding of our vehicle stock and also provide financial support for our training and marketing. But any such amounts they and other lenders pay us will not affect the amounts you pay under your finance agreement, all of which are set by the lender concerned. If you ask us what the amount of commission is, we will tell you in good time before the Finance agreement is executed. All finance applications are subject to status, terms, and conditions apply, UK residents only, 18’s or over. Guarantees may be required.
