Followed Rallycross for 30 years and curiously there has never been a Manta competing in the UK, they were/are not very common in Europe, here's one seen in a recent YouTube video that competes in the Belgium Rallycross Historic/post Historic Championship, this is when the championship visited Buxtehude, Germany -

 Unfortunately there is only a few seconds of the Manta in the Video, a least it's a great shot of it 'doing a Kevin Erikson', round the outside and into the lead !

Nice find Ian, yeh they are a little expensive to be rallycrossing now!, but the above would be ideal, maybe better if it had a jag axle, or a healthy appetite for welded opel diffs, would be ideal if there was a half decent championship in your area, guessing it would be modified heats.

Saying that, with alot of hard effort and detailing, it could make a nice road car, again! Solid roof too!
