Curborough Sprint Course: A Day At The Races #2 – 07-05-10

I took the KP out for a spin this afternoon and, after rolling about a bit down some of my favourite roads, found myself in the vicinity of Curborough; being a Sunday, I thought  I’d take a gamble and see if anything was going on.  It was, so here’s some pics!


Contact, Bwap, Fire: Wahooooo

My friend Ryan sent me over this vid of his MK1 Escort. He’s been dropping a pretty special Zetec 16v lump into it and this weekend got it started!

What Prodrive engineers do on their days off……

My good friend, ex-room mate, uni veteran and all-round Escort-lover Ryan has taken it upon himself to put the keyboard warriors to bed and write the definitive, first hand guide to dropping a 2.0l 16v Zetec engine into his MK1 Ford Escort.

This is no trailer queen either. Despite being a Bubble arched, Minilite shod, 3-door it has been daily driven on its door handles since day one. When Ry is not neck deep in Escort bits he is working at Prodrive with his fingers in plenty of interesting pies from WRC cars to top secret engine projects.

In short, if you like old skool cars, sexy engineering, the BWAP of throttle bodies and sideways action this is a blog to watch!


5 Days with Unity Media

I recently spent a week working on Retro Ford magazine at Unity Media. It was awesome to get involved with the mag and see behind he scenes. All the guys are total legends and I am looking forward to working with them again soon! Here are a few pics from the week, as you can see, it was serious fun.
