Andy Burton And His Homebuilt Mid-Engine Rally Specials

English farmer Andy Burton didn't just build an Alfa Romeo with a Ferrari engine where the rear seats used to go. He went on to build a Peugeot 306 with a touring car engine in the middle, then went and won a few championships with it.

This is the short story of Andy and his 1990s rally cars. They might not be pretty, but dammit do they sound good.

I think it's fitting we end this day of the Rally Takeover with these cars, themselves part of the end of competitive homemade specials. May they never be forgotten.
