Driver Willie Rutherford. The car was run by R.E.D. whose owner Geoff Fielding also drove a 6R4 in this livery on the 1986 RAC Rally. The team was called Team Sanyo Rallying with Comet. Both cars retired from the event. Rutherford also contested the 1986 British National Rally Championship in the car and started as favourite but eventually finished 3rd in the championship due to the mechanical unreliability of the car. He won two rounds that year, the Rally Radio Link Mewla Rally and the Quip Forest Rally.
