In the Reliant Robin thread, Peerie Nick linked to a Trials video.
Lots of long fendered (winged) and cycle fendered (winged) old school cars. Are they all kit cars? Or do they actually thrash old MGs in that part of Blighty.

An old Subaru Loyale could do quite well there, stripped for action and with some big tires. Hit the 4WD button and go.

Reminds me of the 'mud bash' rallies the Victorian Rover Scout crews used to run.

the Q prefix on the number plate signifies that it's most likely a kit car.

There is a VDub dune buggy in there. Several of the retro looking cars have the same body moulding, but I believe that the trials cars were always heavily modified and upgraded old sports cars.

I'm a bit out of touch with the UK kit car scene but I recognised a few Marlins and at least one Dutton Melos and there might have been a JBA Falcon in the mix too.
