A couple of nice Escorts....

Maybe that’s an understatement!

In the process of getting soaked at RSOC National Day at Donnington Park last Sunday I managed to snap these two together (they’re RS 1700T’s in case anybody doesn’t know). I’ve seen them both before and the ‘TeamSpan’ car on the right is a show circuit regular but I’ve never seen them both together. As they’re such a rare sight they attracted a bit of a crowd making it difficult to get a photograph but I persevered (or maybe it was Vicki Butler-Henderson :wub: attracting the crowd I’m not sure!) Anyway, absolutely amazing cars!

Here’s my comparatively humble Focus RS, captured on the way down in somewhat dryer conditions!
