Video: Fast, Sideways and Mental – Insane Ford Escort Mk2 Rally Action

Submitted by on March 12, 2015

Ford Escort Mk2 Rally

Spend a few minutes going fast, sideways and mental with Frank Kelly, Liam Brennan and their Group 4 specification Ford Escort Mk2.

Frank Kelly and co-driver Liam Brennan are masterful behind the controls of their beloved ‘Baby Blue’, a Group 4-spec Ford Escort Mk2, and have amassed an impressive collection of rally silverware to show for it.

Similarly impressive is Baby Blue itself! The Escort Mk2 has a 2.5-litre Series 2 Millington engine under the bonnet, pushing power through a Tractive five-speed sequential box and Atlas Casing Elite LSD. Suspension is handled by DMS four-way adjustable shocks on all four corners, and (occasional) braking duties are looked after by AP four pots up front and two pots at the back.

Most impressive of all, however, is the insane rally action you can enjoy in their latest video – Fast, Sideways and Mental. There’s no false advertising or pretenses here, this is three and a half minutes of fast, sideways and mental rally action. You need to watch it.
