Prodrive’s seven best race and rally cars

If you’ve followed motorsport for the last four decades, whether it be the WRC, WEC or BTCC, you’ll have heard of Prodrive. The company is a motorsport engineering powerhouse and has won almost everywhere it's competed. It was founded in 1984 by David Richards, a man who trained as an accountant before ditching that entirely and focus on his passion: motorsport. Having spent eight years as a co-driver in the British and Scandinavian rally championships, he won the WRC title in 1981 as co-driver to the legendary Ari Vatanen. Fast forward to 1983 and Prodrive was born, and since then it has competed in more than 1200 events, winning more than 300 and claiming a podium place almost 500 times. It makes a lot of sense, then, to take a look through the Prodrive archive and examine some of its finest creations.
