Subaru Impreza WRC001

I am particularly pleased to have been asked to paint an image of this significant car by H&H Classics. The car is being auctioned at the Motorsport Hall of Fame event being held at the RAC’s Woodcote Park on 6th June. 

This historic rally car has been described as one of the most important ever made. Chassis 001 was the car that Prodrive used as the test and development car.

It’s thanks to the many hours that rally legend Colin McRea spent testing chassis 001, that when it came to its competition debut at Rally Monte Carlo in 1997, Piero Latti won and helped Subaru go on to win their third consecutive manufacturer’s world title.
