XR3i Crash Mallory Park
This is from Mallory Park in Leicestershire at the John Cooper Esses (Lake
Esses) on 24th March 2008.
The driver was not hurt but a bit shaken up.
Sorry about the camera shake but i thought it was going to land on top of
XR3 Ford Escort - Home Made Top Gear style
(Since Google+ made changes 2013, I cannot reply). A home made Top Gear
style movie about the Ford Escort XR3. Featuring my two cars LYP (stored) &
YNO (the one now running). Designed to bring back memories for those that
had one (or those that didn't), with shots all around the cars. I hope you
At the middle to end of 1982 the 1600i and RS turbo were still to come out, so the XR3 was the
top of the range Escort at that moment in time. The Escort was the UK's and
the world's top selling car in 1982, and it had been voted European car of
the year in 1981. XR3 variants were made from the Mk3 Escort onwards.
LYP I bought in 1986 when it was 4 years old, and I just turned 25. It
hasn't run since 2008 and is in long-term storage. YNO I bought in 2008 and
I have done that up too. YNO won a trophy at a car show in 2011 and is
running - it is roadworthy. Quite a special car.
May the Ford be with you. Filmed in Romford, at the Cardrome, and Bretons
Farm. Music is from The Mummy, plus tracks called The Kraken, Drive, Real
Wild Child, and The Chief.

That is all I know after asking the first owner about them. I don't know
how they work, or if Fords fitted them or not. Mind you it would be easy to
remove them as they just screw into the Exhaust manifold. They seem to be some sort of
diaphragm contraption. I've never seen them on any other car!
Update - someone who fitted these said they are aftermarket additions. They
could easily be removed it needed. But they are probably the only example
of them on any car still running I reckon.
