  • Montego race & rally cars

    Were there any Montegos that rallied or raced?

    I remember a Monty estate racing in an MG series in recent years.

    I heard legend of one monstrous Monty rally car:

    Anyone got any pics or vid of it?

    Must have been quite a sight in action

    It's a shame about the Montego 6R4, a one off thats gone for good.

    But maybe one day some one can do an exact copy of the original given time and cash.

      Hi John - Yes, there was a Montego that rallied in the West Midland MC Championship. I think he was a Rover employee - his first name was Gary and he ran a Rover 216 afterwards. I remember him rallying in the West Mids cahmpionship. I'll have to try and thin of his name or go through some old regs. It was a Montego Saloon.

        Would that be Gary Boxall?

        Did'nt he move to New Zealand and continue to rally in a Monty?

          I agree it's a shame it had to be THAT Montego but it's gone now.
          Ambition to put a Skyline engine with running gear and reality are 2 different things.

                There have been two Montego estates in the MGOC championship in the past.

                I believe someone was prepping a Montego saloon but IIRC the wiring loom caught fire and scuppered the project.

                              Shame of it was, it was all in, mounted up. I can't remember about wiring etc. But physically was all there. Just a time issue I guess.
