Bit of BDA goodness for the old timers....

Postby Jafa » Tue Dec 03, 2013 7:49 pm

Spot of real driving skill here....




Reminds me of a chap who raced a white and blue Escort at the Wellington street race many years ago, similar style, spent most of the lap on three wheels, cant for the life of me remember his name...

Wrxico build is pretty awesome to. Though I'm not sure how I feel about a 4wd Escourt.

I hear what you're saying, whilst hes done a great job, and its an awesome vehicle, there's something just not kosher about a Subaru powered and 4wd'd Escort.... :wink:

There's an awesomely modified/built Model A rocking about with a BDA in it too. Should be a few clips on jewtube if you haven't seen it already.

They hide the racing harnesses behind a throw cushion in the back seat :lol:

20 years or so ago there was a guy in Ashburton who raced a rotary powered escort.
He was fast and from memory a bit mad when behind the wheel :D

Grasshopper! No idea on what his real name was..... Was a regular at Levels. he rallied, rolled, bowled, arseholed, raced and probably shagged that thing!

I suspect that first vid is one of the modern "BDA"s by these guys: http://www.millingtonengines.co.uk/
Is also rather a few running sequential boxes as well!
