This 1989 MG Metro 6R4 is a unique amalgamation and blend of 1980s Group B, F1, F2 and Le Mans 24hr racing, and was bought as a Clubman Shell from the Group B stock following the Group B ban.

It is 2WD and features a 2500cc Hart 420R engine mated to an uprated Hewland FGC gearbox.

According to EWRC records, Q777 RDS (the car was registered on a ‘Q’ plate from the outset) was campaigned by Murray Grierson from 1989 to 1992, with notable results including 5 wins.  EWRC records also list three other owners of the car. 

In September 2023 this extraordinary machine completed a thoroughly expert, totally comprehensive and utterly painstaking 9-month restoration project, with significant contributions from friends and family, Ronaldson Mechanical Services, Highland Speed Shop, Hewland Classic/PDS Racing, Mardis Gras Motorsport, Panel Craft, Hestan Composites, and Foss Fabrications – to name but a few. 

The vendor, a successful businessman whose abiding passion is motorsports and, in particular, rallying, has had a successful motorsports team for many years and has owned and campaigned Q777 for over a decade.

The car has new sills, a proper tank floor by Panel Craft, and has been epoxy primed and given several layers of 2K paint.
