Picture Of The Day - Rallying Escort

Nothing stirs a true petrolhead more than a Mk1 or Mk2 Ford Escort in action.  Lightweight, rear wheel drive, frequently rallied.

This one is being driven by Tim Gibbs in the 1978 New Zealand Rally.  The car had previously been campaigned by Hannu Mikkola in the 1974 RAC Rally.
