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.

The McLaren P1 Test. On Road and Track - /CHRIS HARRIS ON CARS
Chris Harris drives the new $1.2 million McLaren P1 at the Yas Marina Grand
Prix circuit in Abu Dhabi UAE. Before taking to the track at night, Chris
Harris chats with Chris Goodwin, the Chief Test Driver for McLaren
Automotive to discuss the technology of McLaren's latest offering, perhaps
the definition of the modern day hypercar.
Fair warning, the McLaren Chris Harris drives in this video is the XP7, the
pre-production prototype for P1. The car has had a long life over the past
15 months, driving around the world and clocking over 40,000 hard miles.

O Ford Escort foi um automóvel criado pela secção da Ford Motor Company
A geração MK1 foi produzida de 1968 a 1974, na Europa, com carroçaria
arredondada remetendo ao estilo da época. Tinha tração traseira e estava
equipado com motores 1.1 e 1.3. Em 1969 surgiu a versão RS 1600, que

The Mark I Ford Escort was introduced in the United Kingdom at the end of
1967, making its show debut at Brussels Motor Show in January 1968. It
replaced the successful long running Anglia. The car was presented in
continental Europe as a product of Ford's European operation. Escort
production commenced at Halewood in England during the closing months of
1967, and for left hand drive markets during September 1968 at the Ford
plant in Genk. Initially the continental Escorts differed slightly from
the UK built ones under the skin. The front suspension and steering gear
were differently configured and the brakes were fitted with dual hydraulic
circuits; also the wheels fitted on the Genk-built Escorts had wider
rims. At the beginning of 1970, continental European production
transferred to a new plant on the edge of Saarlouis, West Germany.
The 2.0 L RS2000 version, with its distinctively slanted polyurethane nose,
and featuring the Pinto engine from the Cortina, was announced in the UK in
March 1975 and introduced in Germany in August 1975, being reportedly
produced in both countries. It provided a claimed 110 bhp and a top speed
of 110 mph (177 km/h). For acceleration to 100 km/h (62.5 mph) a time of
just 8.9 seconds was claimed by the manufacturers.
