Motor Sport News - - Historics -

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.
