Mike White's Group N RSI
This is the famous RSI driven by the Mike White/Serge Damseaux in the dealer colours during 1986/7 season. The little 1600cc (C-class) gave the bigger class cars hidings in the South African Group N racing series, which were basically standard vehicles fitted with rollcages and safety harneses. One of the highlights must be the grueling Castrol 6-hour Endurance race at Killarney where the White/Damseaux team beat Sarel van der Merwe’s GTI Golf, various GSI Kadett’s, BMW 528i's and Alfa GTV6’s to the finish line ensuring that Toyota win the Dealers Championship for Group N racing that year.
