Apart from a shift of headquarters from Nottingham to Harrogate, and some differences in the actual special stages used, the style was just the same.

At the time our Editor road-tested the Ford Maverick, the American car makers and the public were getting ready for Detroit's next step in the fight to curb the 13-15% share the foreigners had carved out for themselves in America's car market.
