Ford Escort Mk I '70
Thirty years ago, Hannu Mikkola, with a little help from co-driver Gunnar Palm, carved a place for himself and FEV 1H in rallying’s history books with a dominant drive to victory on the epic 16,000-mile Daily Mirror World Cup rally.Conceived as a promotional event for that summer’s football World Cup, the rally linked London (site of the 1966 World Cup) with Mexico (venue for the 1970 tournament); it was the longest and most ambitious trip in post-war rallying, and received massive world-wide publicity. It would also make Mikkola and the Escort superstars.
The Scalextric model
Scalextric first made the Ford Escort in 1970 and issued six liveries which, even today, are very desirable cars for the rally enthusiast. The all new Scalextric car improves upon the original model design in all area – detail, interior fittings, body shape, livery decoration and stunning performance. The car is fitted with the super fast in-line FF motor. A standard Scalextric Ford Escort also won the Brooklands Test Hill Challenge in August 2009.
