Bean revamping his Ford Lotus Cortina before returning to the forests
Bob Bean is already planning his 58th season of rallying in 2017 with a winter re-shell for his Ford Lotus Cortina.
Bean, who will be 79 years old next March, says that the recent Trackrod Historic Cup was the last event for the current bodyshell. “I’ve got a nice new ’shell just ready for painting,” said the Cleckheaton driver. “Prepfab has done the work on the new ’shell.
“I bought another shell in 2002 but that was too nice to take rallying,” said Bean. “I damaged this shell in 2014 and I bought another ’shell a week later. I plan to be back in the forests again next season.”
