    The latest addition to HSC, beautiful MkII Jag owned by Norm Agnew. Car was built by Dave Silcock and has been in the South Island for many years, only heading North with Norm's recent purchase of it.

    Super cool to see some more Jags come out of the woodwork. And they have "The sound!"

    Yep, agreed Paul, and don't those D Type wheels look cool!

    Thanks Nigel for the photos.

    The first Escort is a 1971 Mk1 RS1600 owned by Paul McCarthy and built to 1973 Broadspeed specs and powered by a 2 litre BDG, Mechanical Injection back to a 4 Speed Close Ratio gearbox. Livery is to replicate the VMW Escort driven by Andy Rouse in period.
    The next is a 1973 Mk1 RS2000 powered by a 2 Litre Pinto SOHC, owned by Poul Christie and again in a Broadspeed spec body, on carburettors but will be replaced with Mechanical Injection, and back to a 4 Speed gearbox.
    Both these cars are built to FIA Appendix K specification and are the first of 5 Escorts coming to race in HSC to these specs.

    Both are fantastic builds and they will be at MG Classic at Manfeild in November running with HMC.

    We had 6 Escorts in total join the field at the Escort 50th Anniversary, Dennis McConnell in the Halliday Freighters Escort, Brent Smith out in the Willment Escort in its 50th Anniversary Livery, David Thompson Snr in the Harrington Auto Traders Escort and Greg Goudie out in his Gp4 Escort along with the above.

    Beaut photos Nigel. Those Escorts are stunning. As Bruce says, they're the first FIA Appendix K Escorts built for HSC. However, they won't have the front spoilers fitted when they race with HSC.

    While we have accepted the Broadspeed flares the front spoiler is for us, HSC not applicable for our regulations covering these cars.
    Our date end is 1971 for our FIA classification but we have allowed the BDG and tha Broadspeed flare to these two car and one other in build.

    Here is Paul McCarthy's beautiful FIA Appendix K MkI Escort, as it will appear for the first time in HSC at the MG Classic (sans front spoiler). This is a replica of the Broadspeed car raced by Andy Rouse in the 1972 British Saloon Car Championship. Its a magnificent car, and a real credit to Paul.

    Paul,
    That is a truly a magnificent looking Escort and I wish you well as it brings back memories of Andy Rouse throwing his Escort around with great success back in the seventies at different events I attended. Well done.

    MG Classic is now only 2 weeks away which is HMC/HSC’s next event.
    We have a good grid of cars for this and several new cars out as well.
    Graeme Bagrie out in his 69 Mustang, Pole Christie in his Broadspeed Escort RS2000, Paul McCarthy in his Broadspeed RS1600, Keith Tunnicliff out in the Nazer Escort and some old favourites as well like Howard Wood in his Group 2 BMW 2002Tii.

    Practice on Friday and racing on Saturday and Sunday. We have 4 races for our group over the 2 days so come along and support MG who put this fabulous event on and call in and say hello to all our boys and girls.

    HMC/HSC Calendars are for sale on site as well.

    Cheers

    Personally I think the car looks much better without the front spoiler

    We are looking forward to having Paul’s new car on the grid at MG. I know Paul is looking forward to it as well.

    It surely was a great weekends racing and camaraderie, super enjoyable and what a great grid of very cool cars. Pats Anglia (red in the above pic) came 1st in the reverse grid race. Thanks to all that made it happen on all levels!

    How cool is this! Tania Allingham arranged to have a wood saw hand painted using the HMC and HSC logos, plus an old Bay Park start scene I sent her. Its being auctioned.

    I just think its completely awesome.
