The ESCORT Edition!
It's 2017 and the latest edition of Pacenotes Rally Magazine is on the shelves! Issue 152 is a Ford Escort special. Inside you can grab a closer look at some awesome Escorts that have performed mighty feats in the world of rallying!
Ari Vatanen reveals when he came across an Escort for the first time in his foreword while Ford's Gerard Quinn also recalls some early Escort memories in his column.
Gareth Lloyd's extra special STW 200R graces the cover and Brian Betteridge allowed us to get up close and personal with his super rare 1700T.
Jason Lepley's ex-Ari Vatanen black Escort is also inside, as is the ex-Gwyndaf Evans F2 Escort kit car, not to mention Malcolm Montgomery's ex-Bertie Fisher Escort as well as a couple of cars from Gerard O'Connell's massive collection and the late Roy Cathcart's collection.
Many current competitors are included in our showmen and historic Escort pages, plus Martin Holmes takes a look back at Escorts in competition on the World rally scene. Meanwhile, Kevin O'Driscoll recalls the 1978 Irish Tarmac Championship which was simply dominated by Escorts!
In addition to our Escort feature, we've got a number of rally reports too, with the Grizedale Stages, Jaffa Stages, Turkey Run, Killarney Historic, Christmas Stages and others.
And we can't forget about Monte Carlo! Martin Holmes gives us his special insight into what was an action-packed event that revealed more than just one or two surprises.
