Shand gets miles in R.A.C. contest
Grant Shand will use the Bovington and Salamandre rounds of the R.A.C. Historic Asphalt Championship as preparation for contesting the Corsica historic rally in October.
The East Anglian driver and rally car preparer will take his Ford Escort Mk2 to the Tour de Corse Historique. “I’ve been to the rally twice looking after customer cars, but I’ve never driven it. It is the twistiest asphalt rally I’ve ever seen.”
The event covers 350 stage miles on the island and Shand’s Rally Xtreme Ford Escort is freshly prepared. “I just want to make sure it is right, so doing Bovington and Salamandre in Belgium in the spring is the ideal shakedown.”
