I lost a starter motor at Spa too. Looking for it, was lucky enough to find another one when searching for. Still wonder why it was hot and someone already wrote my name on it. How do they know…

My best find when doing a pre-race circuit walk was a transponder - which my mate beat me to.....and at Croft last year a Snap-On 10mm spanner


Best ever find at a circuit was many years ago when queuing to get in a GP at Silverstone when I found a entry pass.....I did briefly think about holding it up and asking - "Anyone lost this"? before concluding that eliminating the 400 applicants might be tricky.....

Anyone could help me pointing in the right direction for a carb setup, please? Car is Escort, carbs are 44 IDF with the pancake and exhaust manifold is between Grp1 and original? Mild camshaft. What kind of emulsion tubes would you recommend?
We have lot of Grp1 Escorts here, but its easier to find settings for 48 overbored to 50 than 44…

Head is Pinto 2 litre as should, not injection or 1.6 as many have here. If I tell you that to eliminate the huge flat spot we have from idle to around 5K rpm, we gonna test this set up: 145 main jets, 205 air corrector, 65 idle jets with F9 emulsion tubes. Does it make sens or just sounds far from the target? Do you modify the accelerator pump? Ignition timing is from 13° to 32° max.
Car won't cross the Channel…

Our Escort is in storage Gerard. When I bought the IDF's I just asked the supplier to set them up for our Group 1 escort. She has been on the rolling road and all was fine.
I can go and look if you are stuck but this would take me an hour or so.Let me know.

Thank you so much, Iain. Was wondering if you too use IDF's as per homologation form. We dont have many compliant cars in France, most develop more than 200 hp, an impossible figure for any appendix car. We gonna try like this and let you know if the flat spot is still there. By far we have not your experience and knowledge but I think the IDF's are the best carbs Weber made. Now we have our jets custom made because what the market suggest is sometimes pure fantasy. Thanks again!

Iain (and others of course) any recommendation for the ignition timing? Fuel is 102/FIA. We have a 2 litre Bertone Grp1 - ave power 143 hp - accepting easily 40° degrees, making the 32° of our Pinto quite conservative to say the least. I've a friend running an appendix Grp2 Mustang 289, with at least 36° fixed timing. Its seems Grp 1,5 Capris are in the region of 35/39° (not mine!) with heron design heads. None have a knock sensor…

Gerard, I wish I could offer some input into carbs and timing, having built a Gp1 RS2000! But, like Iain's, the carbs were fitted as per supplier's spec, then given to the engine builder. They set them up on the dyno, along with the ignition timing.


When I sold the car, all the set up info went with it.....

No worry, Mike, If I recall you had your engine dynoed at Scholar (or was it Sherwood may be)?
In fact, we're looking for a basic set up in order to spare time and avoid big mistakes. Not forgetting that sometimes what works on a given engine can't be duplicated.
I saw pictures from your Mk2 RS Jägermeister, appreciating the legal way you found to give negative camber to the front end! Is that one of your mechanics who collected a Magnum head, at Spa 2016?

Scholar built the engine. They are not far from here and also built the engine for my FF2000, so a no brainer for me.

All RS Escorts have a small amount of negative camber on the front as standard. The Gp1 car was fitted with a World Cup crossmember, which may have slightly different pick up points for the track control arms. They were completely standard- as should be for Gp1....

“One of your mechanics”? That’s funny! To use an English expression, I am “Chief cook and bottle washer”...... Likely was Simon from Foxcraft collecting the head.

Nice young guy, smart and polite enough to understand my pigeon English! The welding he did is still fine. May be the abuse of Dremel led Claude to check the water chambers trough the ports! WTH, because no scrutineer here is able to really check a Magnum…*Two Grp1 homologation forms are amazing, Dolly and Magnum/Firenza.

I learned you like to challenge the police on open roads, young man! By now, they all must know you.
