Ford Escort - Star of Rally Road and Track DVD
For almost half a century, one car stood above all others in Britain on road, rally and track - the Escort. If you've ever owned one or enjoyed rallysport, then this is the DVD for you. This comprehensive programme traces the design and development stages of the Escort through to the present day, with added interviews from owners and enthusiasts.
The car that managed to retain the title of second best-selling vehicle in Britain for the best part of four decades is uniquely celebrated here, from the first 1100 and 1300's in the sixties right the way through to the S2 RS Turbo of the nineties.
Originally hailed as a practical family vehicle, see how the Escort evolved from a strange little car to become the most popular brand in the history of Ford's production, and still remain a first choice for many rally drivers today.
Take a unique look at the Escort RS Cosworth and WRC cars, the hero models that won so many world class events back in the nineties. Unseen archive footage of these cars in action both on and off the road is not to be missed!
DVD extras include promotional body work film, 'Dressed for Success’, and two memorable commercials; one for the XR3i and the other starring Ronnie Corbett.
