I agree with Chunder I always considered Mark to be the most talented UK driver of his generation (Will was close) and what a travesty he went off to BTCC and failed so miserably; his talent didn't deserve that.

I think MArk did have something of a car advantage certainly. In the UK he was totally dominant. In Europe he was not quite as quick as Matti and Martin, but was getting there in only one year.

If you see what Will, Pat and others managed, there is no doubt in my mind he could have been ERC champion. In an RS200, I always considered Mark to be perhaps the most complete RS200 driver. he looked so at ease in that car. The blue one was always my fave, simple, clean, and my God it sounded lovely, no chatter, just power!!

Thank you very much Stephen H!! I was 12 when Rennison drove that Mk3 escort at lydden but i remember it like it was yesterday! My brother and i couldnt believe that a 1600 could beat the cars that it did. We thought and still do that Mark was a legend. I havent been able to find any photos at all of the escort in red blue and white despite really trying. What a great thread.

That was 1988., he ran that most of early year in ERC, Spain for instance, before getting rid of the wing and having standard bodwork in France?, then finally painted the car blue like the Bardy 1.6 Astra and Rucrofts Nova too, they were all blue, change of colour with DSRM I think.

I always thought the blue RS200E was a new car, sure it was.

The only genuine RS200 in Justin Smith’ information I can assign with Renny is chassis #68, that was some years later seemingly sold to King Hussein of Jordan. Its original owner was John Carter of DSRM.

I don't know if its a different car or not (did King Hussein have more than one RS200?), but an ex-King Hussein RS200 recently went up for auction:

Now where did I leave my cheque book...

Yep, I remember there were talks about one (or more?) other RS200 for King Hussein already between 1987 and 1992, during the GpB era in RX. IIRC that one was used by Jonathan Palmer too.

PS: According to Justin Smith #187 was driven by King Hussein, Jackie Stewart, Jonathan Palmer and Damon Hill.
