Rallye Sport Fords

The inside story
Mike Morton

This is very much a personal story written by a sometime racer who spent 23 years project managing, planning and implementing the hottest of hot Blue Oval projects. Some of it will be familiar, but the insider view on the ill-starred RS1700T makes for compelling reading; same too for the RS200 – complete with some fantastic renderings from the Ghia studio. If there is a criticism, it’s that it could have done with a more thorough edit. And better proofreading, as a few well-known names are spelt incorrectly (Jimmy McCrae?). That aside, this is a good overview of some fondly remembered Everyman performance cars, and a decent human-interest story of a life spent in the British motor industry. RH
