Ford Escort GT MKI (1968)
Not much info on this one, but the drifting moment is just too perfect not to be shared anyway.

Because most of you are Escort freaks (and I love you all for that), here’s a nice compilation of MKII Escorts in rally stages.

Rally de Portugal 1994 — Lousada Super Special

Most of you won’t understand the language, but this footage holds some very endearing moments to me. This was the first Rally I ever attended, I was 7 or 8 years old, and I remember finding this absolutely spectacular. I didn’t know the cars (nor the drivers), so it’s wonderful to re-live this moment 17 years later.

The first few minutes show Delecour’s and Biasion’s Ford Escort RS Cosworths.

Ford Escort MKI Mexico (1973) advertisement.
An unneeded celebration for a car which didn’t have a thing to prove. And that made the world need the Escort Mexico, a road version of the MKI Rally car, using the same 1.6 litre Kent Crossflow engine.
But don’t take my word for it, here’s a man with a moustache telling you how it is.
