Ford Sierra Cosworth RS500

The Trakstar team was formed in 1989 to contest the British Touring Car Championship by Robb Gravett and Mike Smith together with team manager Malcolm Swetnam, poached from the previous year’s BTCC winning Prodrive BMW M3 team for whom Smith drove. Gravett drove the Ford Sierra Cosworth RS500 to victory first time out in the opening round of the 1989 BTCC at Oulton Park, he then went on to score a total of 4 wins, 5 pole positions and 8 fastest laps for runners up spot in BTCC Class 1 and 4th overall in the 1989 Championship. They would have won the Class 1 Championship in their rookie year when Andy Rouse had all his points deducted for running illegally modified Garret turbos but the FIA overrode this penalty on appeal as the French language edition of the FIA Yellow Book stated that “repairs” were allowed unlike the English edition.
