Even some of the more modern series surely count as nostalgic by now. I never saw the Escort Mexico Championship which kicked off the modern one make saloon car era. But I have a lot of happy memories of the Renault 5TS, Ford Fiesta, Metro, Honda CRX, Rover 216 and Renault Clio series of the 1980s. These series always seemed to have the same front runners. People like David Carvell, Paul Taft, Dave Loudoun, Andy Ackerley et al seemed to migrate like a flock of birds from one series to another. But what happened to them? Does anybody know where they are now?
There were also other less successful series. Does anyone remember Saab 900s trying, not very successfully, to imitate racing cars? The VW Polo G40 series fared little better. Neither did the VW Beetle Cup despite a horrendous bill for wrecked cars. Of course some of the cars from these defunct series were brought together in more varied club racing cataegories.
Which was your favourite series/driver/ memory?
