Thanks for sharing these great images, I'm particularly fond of the colour scheme on the second car.

The second car disappeared from the racing scene in 1992, and has never been seen again.
Somehow, in a recent passed I've found it in a Citroen Specialist in my residence area. The car is in a really good state.
I'll make a article about this cars in my Blog http://www.speedmessiah.com.pt (sorry, the blog is in Portuguese).

They are running on full stock hydraulics! I'm trying to find the guys that prepared these three BX's to know that secret :twisted:
