Bore­ham (UK)

Classic Ford - - TOP TWENTY -

In the be­gin­ning Bore­ham north of Chelms­ford was an or­chard, which be­came a USAAF air­field in the 1940s. Later it was a rac­ing cir­cuit, then bought by Ford as a devel­op­ment/test/prov­ing ground. The Mo­tor­sport depart­ment moved in, to new work­shops, in 1963. Per­haps they were not pro­duc­tion road cars, but Ford Mo­tor­sport built al­most ev­ery works Cortina, Lo­tus Cortina, Es­cort Mk1, Es­cort Mk2, (some) Capris, Sierra RS Cosworth, the Es­cort RS Cosworth, and Puma Rac­ing of the 1963-1996 pe­riod. The first were Mk1 Cortina GTs, the last were Puma Rac­ings for Euro­pean ral­lyng.
