Martin Page & Hugh Holdaway - Escort Mk2, 2.0L XE

Martin (driver) & Hugh (co-driver) entered the Brands Hatch Winter Stages rally on the 31st January 2016 and were doing really well in their Escort, they had just carried out a rebuild of their engine and it was now producing 10bhp more than previously. 

Martin was very pleased and they were comfortably moving up though the field, they had managed to get up to 9th overall before having a problem with the gearbox, it had been running faultlessly for 4 years when 2nd gear got very loud and they decided to pull out of the rally to save further damage.  Martin is looking forward to his next rally once the gearbox has been serviced.

Email received January 2008 from Hugh Holdaway of Staplehurst, Kent who with the owner Martin Page rallies an Escort Mk2 with this kit:

Hi, this isn't an enquiry - more of a "thank you". My driver (Martin Page) came down to see you on Christmas Eve as we'd had an engine failure and needed some parts to get the car ready for a rally at Longmoor on the 30th. Obviously we needed the parts but the advice given and the oil pickup pipes (and modification instructions) were fantastic - the engine was rebuilt on Boxing day and running again on the Friday. We competed at Longmoor on the 30th and the engine performed without fault all day, without the advice given I doubt we'd have finished. We managed to achieve our best ever result coming 2nd in class so we're well pleased .
