Aye some spectators were just insane - and the marshalling was non existent.

Here's a drivers eye view:

Amazing footwork!

Amazing also to see what engines can be shoehorned into a Mk2 Escort nowadays - big difference from the 70's!

There's a guy that works at a garage by me that has a beautiful baby blue MKI Mexico with a 500bhp Cosworth YBD and full 4x4 Sapphire Cosworth running gear.It was a labour of love over 10 years and looks like a factory job wherever you look and the workmanship is second to none.

TRG-22, yes it had a serious effect - I think it was Henri Toivenen and his navigator getting killed when his Lancia crashd out that finally nailed it.

Some serious looking projects there lads - thanks.
