Bean re­vamp­ing his Ford Lo­tus Cortina be­fore re­turn­ing to the forests

Motor Sport News - - Historics -

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.”
