Originally into the classic Mini scene, Jon Blackburn served his ‘apprenticeship,’ as he puts it, running a modified Mini for a number of years, before moving up to a Peugeot 205 GTi.
The author has experienced the ups and downs of owning, repairing, and maintaining these still benchmark hot hatches for over seven years. He is a member of the Peugeot Sport Official Owners Club and the 205gtidrivers.com forum. He also owns and runs a TVR, which he claims is almost as much fun as the 205 – when it’s working! A move from marketing into publishing has allowed Jon to share with you some of his 205 GTi experiences and ‘petrol head’ enthusiasm, putting it into writing for this, his first published book.
