A few snaps here of a beautifully prepared mkII Escort. GroupB Motorsport's Eaton Yale car sees regular action at rally events across the country, its high spec mirroring the impeccable finish to create something that's as competitive as it is easy on the eye. Check out the flawless stripes across those front forest arches, the eat-your-dinner-off-it neatness of the boot, the pure purpose of the interior, the functional mix of old and new in the engine bay... in the context of the Goodwood rally paddock, it would have been easy to overlook this car and fawn over the iconic Rothmans-liveried mkIIs nearby, but this really was rather special to inspect up close.
