  • Targa West 2009

    G'day All,

    My little Escort has come out of retirement to contest the 2009 Targa West, Although it will be difficult to repeat our performance from 2007 we aim to have a shitload of fun and pass as many V8's & WRX’s as we can in the process. The event starts Thursday this week and runs till Sunday evening.

    If your interested in having a look or incorporation spectationg with a ride, here is the spectator guide

    Spectator Information

    Hopefully the rain continues throughout the week and weekend as it is an advantage to the smaller cars.

    If you do come out to have a look feel free to say gday during service breaks.

                      Its a 2L SOHC Pinto, heavily modifid of cause, produces about 200HP @ the crank. All forged internals, Twin 48mm Webbers revs to 7500RPM. Its quite quick with the close ratio box and 4.44 diff (quaife lsd).

                      I got a couple of hot MK1's and just in the late stages of a MK2 gravel rally car

                        Hope it all goes well. I will be spectating on Sunday at Toodyay and only go to see the older cars such as yours. WRX etc are boring to watch compared to the older ones.

                        We are lucky to have a property on Sandplain Rd near the event.

                          Nice work Mik! I hope you nail as many WRX's as you can! Looking forward to hearing how you go
