Ford Capri RS 2600 racing. With historic notes on the car.
Original video by: fordhistoric, http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=v83D0N... In 1971, 1972, 1973, the Ford Capri RS2600 Touring cars beat virtually everything they faced, be it the 7-litre Chevrolet Camaro's, AMG Mercedes, Opel Commodore GS, Alpina BMW 2800cs, Broadspeed escort or the Alfa Romeo's. The most memorable performance was again in the SPA 24-hour race in Belgium where the three competing cars finished 1-2-3 with Jochen Mass and fellow ex-formula 1 driver Hans Stuck winning. The RS2600 was powered by Fords V6 engine using Westlake heads and fuel injection, putting out 320 hp. In 1974 the RS 3100 Cologne Capri's were acclaimed as Europe's fastest touring cars of the time. The car used Fords new Cosworth V6 GAA engine putting out 450 hp to 475 hp at 9000 rpm and sounded incredible. Unfortunately the energy crisis hit in 1974, and the Capri did not have a chance to fully prove itself, but it also did very well in other race series. These cars should not be forgotten.
