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.
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.

After the very sad accident that happened at Cavan Rally a week pervious the Circuit Of Munster was running with feelings, memories and the sadness of those taken away from us very fresh in the mind. The Rallying Family will miss Joe & Caroline. We wish the injured a full speedy recovery.
The Rain was a fair cry from the sunny weather in Cavan, Three 20km stages awaited the crews.
