CORGI VANGUARD VA12301 O SCALE Subaru Impreza Turbo RCM 'The Gobstopper' – 2008 Time Attack Championship, Winner, Olly Clark

Olly Clark stormed to three consecutive 'Ten of the Best' wins between 2007 and 2009, plus two Time Attack Championships in 2008 and 2009 driving 'The Gobstopper', possibly the most extreme and exciting modified car ever built in the UK. It was originally given its unusual name by elder bother and chief engineer Matt Clark because it would silence their internet critics, and it certainly did. Olly and Matt, partners in their late father's company Roger Clark Motorsport (RCM), built the car as a showcase for RCM using a 2-litre Subaru flat-four engine that features an RCM designed crank and dry sump system, together with a huge Garrett GT4094 turbocharger.

The power is delivered through a triple plate carbon clutch into an RCM designed 6-speed sequential gearbox that drives 3 Modena plated limited slip differentials. The performance is awe inspiring, and, even though the car's 50/50 torque split might suggest otherwise, Olly's driving has become known for aping his father's flamboyant sideways style in a way that fully exploits more than the width of the track and the car's immense power. Constantly under development, 'The Gobstopper' is modelled here in its 2008 Time Attack Championship winning guise. Full size replicas are available from RCM, if your budget is around £250,000!
