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.
