#58 Ford Escort Mk2 - Chris Bruce, Peter Carracher, Dave Turtle

Bruce/Carracher/Turtle, Ford Escort Mk2

Chris Bruce & his Ford Escort in 2006

After completing London Sydney '77 Chris continued to use his Escort on several long distance events in the late '70s and early '80s. Several of these events were organised in Europe and North Africa by Jacques Regis, who drove a Peugeot 504 on London-Sydney.

1986 is the tax disc date indicating the last time the Escort was on-the-road. This 2006 photo shows Chris holding the original London-Sydney bonnet on one of the many days when he has thought about starting a proper restoration.

These days Chris keeps busy helping organise various car rallies for The Classic Rally Association and The Endurance Rally Association.

Peter Carracher is the technical director for Iveco in China and Dave Turtle is a senior engineer with Ford in the UK.
