Just watched your tussle, looked great fun, will post link to you tube when Daniel uploads it.

Great day, even though it started somewhat damp - thanks HSCC & especially Alan who put in so much effort to organise. Hopefully a series will ensue...

Well done all who participated in what must have been dreadful conditions - at least for practice and race 1. I watched/listened from home to live timing and Marcus Pye's great commentary and it really made me wish I had been a part of it. I reminisced about the first time I ever raced at Brands back in 1977 and leaving the pit lane in practice to approach the daunting (then) Paddock bend on slicks ........ in the wet - we didn't have any wets at that time. Happy days.

P.S. What happened to Iain in race 1?

No lock tabs? Thought that was standard Ford fitment?

Was up there helping friends racing, looked a nice mixed grid of Escorts. Big shame about the weather.
When i talked to guys back in april/may about this 50th escort doo, it was going to be htp/fia cars only ?
Just as well the allsorts escort boys boulstered the grid due to lack of fia stuff.
Static display stuff was top shelf material.
Well done to HSCC for running the meeting in such wet conditions.

There sure was a wide disparity in car specification but it made for an entertaining couple of races. Just about dried out now! Thanks to all for the pretty unique spectacle. Next stop Castle Combe for the classic!

I think it was inevitable that the grid would have to be opened to more than just Gp1/2/5 stuff. Not a big deal to me as they were all Escorts, just some were more period than others.....

I viewed the day as a chance to support the HSCC and be involved in a one off occasion. Of course there were going to be those out for glory, but all that was of little interest to me. (Not that I would have been competitive with the front runners anyway )

Most important was returning home with in undamaged car. It may be only a blue oval product, but the repair costs are same as any other race car....

Hopefully the "allsorts Escorts" will come out to play in the CSCC Special Saloons and Modsports series occasionally. A good place for them, I would have thought. One or two play already, but always good to have more, and only 4/5 meetings a year.

One or two looked appropriate but probably the ones that are already racing with CSCC!

No idea about escorts Iain, a legitimate question! but Cortina had them, at least mk1's

I had wobbly steering on a road car I bought some years back, all the bottom ball joint bolts were loose, lock tabs fitted but not bent over!

Thanks Cliff. And look- almost dry! The only wet of any consequence left was as you entered the pit straight from Clarke Curve, where it had been running across earlier. One or two got a tank slapper on! The trick seemed to be, to unload the steering as you went through the wet bit.....

I was being sarcastic Joe. Of coarse you are correct. I keep a book on jobs to do and one was to lock wire the bolts. Not ticked off. only myself to blame.
Just bought on e bay set of bolts and lock tabs. Just glad it was me and not a customer.
