PHOTOS: McRae tests Escort RS1800
The Flying Scotsman, Alister McRae, hit the forests in his Ford Escort RS1800 yesterday, ahead of this weekend's Dunlop International Classic Rally of Otago.
McRae got to grips with the Bryce Biggs-prepared BDA Escort in cold and wet conditions, and from all reports, he looked impressive and loved the car.
