Top Es­cort Mk1 to re­turn af­ter smash

Motor Sport News - - Historics -

Three years af­ter it rolled down the hill­side in Kielder, the ex-jeremy Eas­son Ford Es­cort Mk1 will re­turn to the stages in the hands of Mark Tug­well.

Mark and his brother Tim were lucky to emerge from a mas­sive ac­ci­dent on the 2013 Carlisle Stages and have spent two years re­build­ing the car with an ex-rikki Prof­fitt shell.

Eas­son took the car to third place on the 2005 R.A.C. Rally and was head­ing for vic­tory a year later when the throt­tle link­age fell apart on the fi­nal stage.

Steve Pugh will co-drive Tug­well for a cam­paign on the gravel rounds of the MSA BHRC. Tug­well will com­mute from his farm in France to the ral­lies.
