Historics sign up for Wales Rally GB
The Ford Escort Mk2 of Rudi Lancaster and Guy Weaver heads a 19-strong contingent of historic cars on the entry for the WRGB National Rally (October 28-30).
Leading the chase of the Devon-based former Peugeot Challenge contender will be more Escort Mk2s for Ben Friend, Mark Bentley and event newcomer Mike Tomkinson.
Fresh from victory on the week-long Baltic Classic in their Datsun 260Z, Andrew Siddall and Andy Bull return to the Welsh forests in Siddall’s Escort Mk2.
Variety to the entry comes in the form of local driver Rikki Proffitt (Datsun 240Z) and the rare Beetle-shaped 1958 VW Oettinger GT of Bob Beales and Mike Leflay, which is set to be the oldest car on the rally.
