Escort Twin Cam ex Broadspeed Group 2

Drives Available


1969 built Escort Twin Cam With HTP just issued

Registered 1st February 1970, Campaigned by a privateer Keith Edwards built by and hired from Broadspeed (Thought to be one of the original 25 cars built by Broadspeed). The car as all Broadspeed prepared cars was fitted with a British Racing Motors (BRM) engine unit.

Only some 22 of these cars remaining licensed for use on the road here in the Uk with a further 11 Sorned so a rare car indeed, very few actual original rally cars remain in existence, possibly only half a dozen.

Keith campaigned the car throughout the 1970’s and entered with his wife as co-driver on numerous European events including:

1971 – Tour of Switzerland

            RAC Rally of Great Britain

            Circuit of Ireland

            Rally of Spain

            Scottish Rally

Throughout the 1970’s many BTRDA rounds,
