Es­cort ace gets Ford Sierra Cos­worth for R.A.C. As­phalt at­tack

Motor Sport News - - Historics -

Tim Free­man will field a Ford Sierra Cos­worth in this year’s R.A.C. His­toric As­phalt Rally Cham­pi­onship.

Best known as a lead­ing con­tender in a Ford Es­cort Mk2, the Glouces­ter­shire builder has bought the three-door Group A Cos­worth pre­vi­ously owned and ral­lied by John Mor­gan from South Wales.

“It’s ready to go and we just need to get the FIA pa­pers done,” said Free­man. “We’ll pick a cou­ple of R.A.C. His­toric As­phalt rounds and have a play. It’s some­thing dif­fer­ent so I thought ‘why not?’”

Free­man will con­tinue to rally his Es­cort on gravel events and keep the Cos­worth for as­phalt.
