This piece of British Motorsport History is a very interesting find indeed. The vendor informs us that it’s a Chamberlain-prepared, Group N, Diahatsu Charade Turbo that was built for the late, great Will Hoy for the 1985/1986 Production Saloon Car Championship. Indeed, the vendor informs us this was Will’s first ‘works drive’ in his illustrious career, which included a British Touring Car Championship along with many other successes.

We believe that this car was also shared with fellow BRDC members Ray Mallock and Mike Salmon for the Willhire 24 Hour races in 1985 and 1986. The vendor describes the car as in "unrestored condition" looking like it did after the 1986 season. It boasts a Piff (Mountune) engine, original alloy cage and a bag tank with twin ATL dry break filler.

Excitingly offered at No Reserve, this Charade Turbo is reported to start, drive and stop and is an interesting piece of British motorsport history.
