Yup, but barring mistakes and emissions, it's done. Seemed a productive way to spend the day, as walking was a struggle and the weather was crap anyway.....

Feel free to bump any 'lost' threads that are still active.

I am afraid to say that the Escort has remained just about in the same state of build for the past three years. At present engine is out and new oil pump being fitted. Then on to the wiring and a few other jobs ready for the big race.

We're considering enter one or two cars at least. But the car-wrecking reputation of Brands makes us hesitate…*Not mentioning that the driving level is much higher than in France together with cars development stage.

Is it just for Mk1, or is any model of Escort eligible? It's not clear from the press release.

Sneer and scoff you may Tim, but I would have you know that Luton is a very popular destination indeed, why people flock here from all over the World.
I have Italian, Pakistani, Sri Lankan, Polish, Lithuanian, and Jamaican neighbours, the corner shop is Polish, the chip shop Chinese, the motor accessory store s run by a Sikh, I can buy my wife's Burkas, eat Jamaican, all within a couple of minutes walk from home.

The other day I swear I saw a white man walking down the road.
I think they got him though!

It's pretty much open to all Mk1, 2 and 3 cars. Group 1, 2, N, Special Saloons etc. Early interest has been very high so I guess there could be scope to split the classes if space can be found in the programme.
