Looking over the passage rundown of the current year’s 2009 Western Australian Targa West landing area rally, I was satisfied to see no less than 5 Mk1 Ford Escorts entered in the exemplary rivalry class.

Since their delivery in 1968, the Mk1 escort has reliably included in Rally rivalry all over the planet. For very nearly 7 years after it’s delivery, the MK1 Escort overwhelmed the worldwide meeting scene, at long last giving the mantle to it’s similarly prevailing Mk2 replacement.

Having gone after the most recent 2 years in this occasion, I’ll invite the amazing chance to make a stride back and absorb the exhibition according to an onlooker’s point of view. While partaking in the occasion from the bounds of a TVR fueled Triumph TR8, I generally had one eye immovably fixed on the Mk1 Escort Mexico’s and RS2000’s in the stages and administration parks.
