Carr to build Es­cort af­ter end­ing BRC

Motor Sport News - - Historics -

Reign­ing BTRDA Rally First cham­pion Nick Carr has a Ford Es­cort Mk2 in build ready to take on the Bri­tish His­toric Rally Cham­pi­onship.

Carr – along with co-driver Nick Sturdy – has com­peted in the Ju­nior Bri­tish Rally Cham­pi­onship this year, but their Ford Fi­esta R2 has been no match for the cat­e­gory-lead­ing cars.

Carr works for Rallysport Devel­op­ment – the firm which built Matthew Robin­son’s Fiat 131 Abarth BHRC car – and is hop­ing to be ready to com­pete on se­lect events next year.

“I want to build a re­ally fast Es­cort and go and have some fun,” said 22-year-old Carr.

“I want to get it built for the RAC Rally when it comes back next year, so we’ll do a cou­ple of events next year and the year af­ter that we’ll do the whole his­toric cham­pi­onship.”
