Building Mk2 Escort rally cars

Past Wyedean Rally winner Dave Jenkins talks about the Mk2 Ford Escort, made from 1975 to 1980, and its enduring legacy in rallying. The video coincides with the first Escort Dave Jenkins Motorsport has built, which took a humble one-time economy car and turned it into a performance machine with a price tag of more than £100,000.

best driver of the world
probably one of the best drivers in the world. A Ford Escort rs2000 mk2 driving at the hillclimb in ireland. the driver is Simon Mc Kinley. He drives a 301Hp powered 2.1l Pinto engine with 16V cylindre head and only 780kg car weight. The car is so damn fast that it can compete against formula cars at hillclimb races.

Ford Escort Mk2 rally car - Pre season testing (+ onboard) - Pure Sound...
This is some footage of "Gavin Hearnden" on his pre-season shakedown at the Boconnoc Estate in Cornwall. This awesome Mk2 Escort is a real screamer... Some words from Gavin; "This is an ex national championship car from the eighties. I bought it around 1997, ran it for a couple of events, then stored it when I set up my business. I couldn't give it away in 2002, so in 2004 started to rebuild it which took a couple of years. It has a 1.4 16v corsa engine which has been taken out to 1.6. It revs to 8500 and runs Jenvi throttle bodies. horsepower is unknown, but estimated at 170ish at the wheels. The transmission is a 6 speed quaife sequential. There is also an Atlas axle which houses a Gripper LSD. Braking is handled up front by "AP" front disc brakes, and the rear by means of a "HiSpec" setup. It was on coilovers at the back, but it was very nervous on anything but a racetrack, so I put it back on leaf springs which makes it a bit more compliant, but it's still reluctant to turn in. Gavin."

Yes, You Can Build a Sick Vintage Rally Car - AFTER/DRIVE
Ever wanted to go back in time, when screaming two-stroke Saabs were the kings of rally? Find out how you can, with Bruce Turk, Saab jedi-master and vintage rally dude. On the car's specs Bruce adds: "It now has a 850cc three cylinder two stroke motor that started life as a 750cc but the block was bored out to 850cc. It has Monte Carlo 850 pistons, a GT 750 crank shaft, a dual Solex "Super kit Carb, lightened flywheel, heavy duty clutch (extra springs added) fully ported intake and Exhaust ports to rally spec II specifications and a Spec II rally 4 speed Saab gear box which is very rare I might add... Oh, estimated HP is 60 BHP" If money were no object, what vintage car (of any era) would you most want to race/rally?
