Shand gets miles in R.A.C. con­test

Motor Sport News - - Historics -

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.”
