McRae\'s Escort-Magazine Feature

If anyone is interested there is a full feature in the current issue of Classic Ford magazine about McRae’s Escort MK II-about six pages in all giving the full spec on everything from the diff to the washer bottle. I am a bit overcome as normally my posts are less informative and more cynical-pills must be wearing off-Hey Doc......:roll:

Either Tropsrotom

B-Has taken my advice to keep taking the pills
C-Has seen the error of his ways and is repentant.

Nice to see him mellow anyway and hope he enjoys the read.:roll:

Aye DMG had some run up the gap, I was spectating near the end and fuck me was he committed.

Im going to be shot for saying this......................but

I wasnt under awed (if thats a word) by Mc Rae- I had hoped it would be a story to tell the kids- like when I saw him here in 91 in the Grp N Sierra, but he just didnt look that step above any other hairy MK2 pilot through the gravel between the Gap and the finish, havent seen the DVD of it mind.

I wouldnt shoot you for saying it but I wouldnt agree with you either. The mans car control is superhuman. You have to see the in-car. Iv never seen any Mk2 driver hold a car the way he did. So effortless. Just out of interest, there was a speed gun on one straight section up the gap, it recorded Andrew Nesbitt at 94mph before braking. It recorded McRae at 98mph. Enough said:cool:

I was standing up at the gap faceing the shop and when mcrea came in to sight the car was never in a straight line he just had her side ways.

I also have to say about phil collins up the gap as he put on a good show.:p:p
