Roger Clark in 1981 season

 

 

Ex. Ari Vatanen

Shell Oils

MK2 Escort RS1800

 

 

 

Possibly the most iconic MK2 Escort rally cars of all time , used by the British rally legend Roger Clark in the 1981 rally season in MCD red colours , then rebuilt into a new LHD shell for 1982 - driven enthusiastically by the 1981 World Rally Champion Ari Vatanen at the end of the Escorts competitive life for a factory driver/Team (1982 season) in the famous Shell Oils colours .

 

This car is fondly talked about by Ari himself as being "the fastest Escort" he had ever driven . Fully restored using original authentic parts , mechanical Lucas Fuel injected BDG engine , ZF 5 speed gearbox , Atlas axle , AP brakes , Coil over tarmac Bilstein dampers , original period dash & Recaro seats , wide minilite wheels etc. Just undergone restoration back to its former glory.

 

FEK was driven by two of the most iconic Escort drivers of the period , during 1981 Roger Clark revved his way around the British Forests in true Roger style ...window down and big revs . Then in 1982 the newly crowned World Rally Champion Ari Vatanen took the car to another level, driving it to its limit and beyond on several occassions.
