1976 FORD ESCORT RS1800
This marks the first main Targa event for Matt Gaskin and Andrew Thomas since the 2014 Targa North Island. Over the winter months, the trusty Nissan Skyline has undergone an extensive rebuild, including a roll-cage extension, weight reduction, and a full rewire by Chris Wall at Speedtech Motorsport (STM). The Skyline’s internally stock RB25DET six-cylinder turbo motor produces a healthy 335kw at the rear wheels, thanks to a Link G4 Xtreme ECU. Matt and Andrew are looking forward to six days of racing in the North Island. Matt thanks his co-driver, crew, and wife — Andrew Thomas, Matty Rule, Jared Rush, and Melanie Gaskin — as well as all of his sponsors.
