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

    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.
