Vice President

Peter is a real car nut. Always has been. So it takes no more than a tank of petrol and a map to keep him happy.

He regularly competes on most of the well-known classic rallies, including Rallye Monte-Carlo Historique, Liege-Istanbul-Liege, The Marathon, The Winter Trial and the infamous Lands End to John o’ Groats.

1992 Lancia HF Delta Integrale Evo 1 -

Rosso Monza

Owned the car since 1999. In recent years I have made some modifications in line with the orginial rally cars, regarding lighting and engine internals.

I have enjoyed several London to Brighton drives with the Club and also enjoy overseas events, such as Le Mans 24hrs WEC, Lancia Legends and the London to Belgium group drive.


Looking forward to the next event.

Co-driver to Martin  Bell since 2000


What started off as supporting my Husband and his passion for Lancia has evolved somewhat from being asked to be the Membership secretary over a few beers at Oktoberfest, after competing in the Lancia Legends Rally 2012 to now the current Chairperson of the club. I love arranging events for the members and meeting up. Having met some really close friends through the club I look forward to one day actually driving a Lancia!....Oh didn’t I mention that, having only an automatic licence is a slight problem with these old beauties! Until then I will forever be a Lancia Groupie and Co driver!

1993 Lancia Delta integrale Evo II - the seventh one built, and owned by me since 2003. 


Has appeared in numerous magazine articles and photoshoots, but is perhaps best known as the featured integrale in the Top Gear Lancia Special.  Standard, unmodified, and just as Lancia intended :-)

Lancia Delta HF 16V Nero

I purchased my car in Dec 2010 after 13 years of being without! My previous Lancia history in included a Lancia Thema 2.0 16v Auto, a silver Lancia Beta Coupe Volumex and my first an F reg Bordeaux Red Lancia Delta HF Turbo i.My current Integrale has been imported from the Netherlands in 2002 with and a shed load of paperwork showing that it had a pretty decent service history but the owners had cut a few corners, probably because of difficulty in getting parts. The car appeared to be original with the only changes being Koni dampers, Eibach FE springs. I've spent the last few years bringing back to a pretty good working order, including sourcing original parts to replace some of the bodge, fitting original Integrale headlights, overhauling the wiring, complete overhaul of the sunroof mechanism & a thorough inspection & servicing to get it running as it should. You will notice I have a bit of red/black theme going!! I love driving it as much as I can and hope to keep it on the road for as long as I can.
