106 Rallye (ex David Higgins)


Recommended Posts

Here we go again.... yet another project to add to the ever increasing number of vehicles to be resurrected sometime in the distant future. 

Series 1 Peugeot 106 Rallye that was driven by David Higgins on the 1994 British rally championship.

Peugeot Sport Coventry (UK) commissioned one GROUP A 106 to contest the 1994 British Championship. Registration number L405URW. The car was technically exported to the Isle of Man - where it was registered with the MAN106A registration number, for the purposes of competing in the Manx rally (nice PR work - especially with the driver being an Isle of Man resident). A106MAN registration number was only a promotional photo

Once sold by Peugeot Sport it was returned to L405URW and the MAN106A registration number was returned to Higgins.

It's been in a few wars and has suffered many a hit. But it will live again at some stage down the line.

That's class, was wondering just the other day where some of the Higgins brothers early cars had gone after seeing Mark had bought J153 LLK! Didn't think this was still around, do you know when its last event was?

Last used circa 2010. Made its way to Northern Ireland late 2000s. Hit again and lay up, changed owners, unfinished project blah blah blah. Mine now and going nowhere.

Reg number on retention more than likely. Was returned to L405URW and MAN106A  - an isle of man registration number was returned to David Higgins

Mega I owned this a few years ago. 
 

Someone had fitted a diesel gearbox which blunted it slightly, but was still frantic. 
 

Can’t  wait for updates!

What a fabulous looking wee car. Driver looks a bit ropey though

Brilliant find !

Love it when cars like this get to live another day 😎

More pictures please 

My other 106 Rallye. Driven by Peugeot Sport factory driver Michel Boetti during the 1996 French Rally championship, with Boetti winning the French 106 Cup. Matching numbers and was in storage for 20 years. Garage ornament now and won’t be out of my garage very often.... if at all!
