Fun in the winter sun

Brands Hatch Winter Rally

Fun in the frost and ice at Brands Hatch RallyeTrack Day

We took the SPEEDMERCHANTS Ford Escort to Brands Hatch for the inaugural RallyeTrack Day ahead of the Motoring News Circuit Rally round. -4 degree temperatures and frost and ice helped ramp up the fun levels to the max.

The Escort performed well as opposed to the driver (me) who had a couple of spins. The car has been Sprinted, Hillclimbed and Rallied and upgrades are planned to Track Race the car as well.

HSR Sebring 12Hours support races

Rolercoaster at Sebring

First outing for car and driver at Sebring marred by electrical and overheating problems, but a good finish in race 1 and a strong performance in the early laps of race 2 shows the potential of the car.

We will be returning to the USA later this year
