    I think he won for the best sounding car, bonus prize for best looking by splitting up all those Escorts.

    Great effort none the less.

    Don't suppose anybody took any pictures we could have for the Calendar? Please.
    Sach.

    What cruel cruel luck to have to retire 8 miles from the end of a grueling 4 day event. The Perez family and whole team must be gutted to have come so close to a record 2nd place after the full rebuild in 2018. Our hearts go out to them.

    Bloody good effort! I am guessing robust transmission parts are not quite as easy to obtain/use as ford bits...
    Cannot be easy choosing to run a Stratos so that morally makes it a win in my mind

    I think the Escorts are 'newer' and had so much development on them over their life.

    Re: Steve Perez refueling fire

    Should we do some sponsorship for the car next time?
    It might only be small but it might be meaningful

    A nice thought however I suspect Mr Perez isn't short of a Bob or two given he was the main sponsor of the whole event. When you look at the plethora of Escort race and rally parts companies I think your comment about their development is much nearer the mark.

    Hopefully this event's profile will have been raised significantly enough on the "Continent" to encourage a few more EU competitors to consider an entry for the next event? It would be nice to see a little more variety in the entry next time. Whilst I appreciate an Escort Mk1 or Mk2 the overload on this rally was almost too much. It would be nice to see a few Fiat 131's, Fiat 124 Abarth, Opel Asconas, Mantas, Minis etc etc. Maybe even a couple of more Stratos could be scared out of the woodwork?

    Variety is the spice of life they say. After this years event I'm probably going to revisit Rally Legend in San Marino, Italy later next year. The attraction of that event is the variety of machinery for me!

    His son Leigh. 'Probably more a racing driver than a rally driver.
    One HT lead wasn't working in that video.

    You right Guy! Only one french driver this year with my friend Maxime Vilmot on Ford Escort retired early with a engine issue!
    Hopefully there will be a few more EU drivers with differents cars than the Escort armada in 2025!
