Rally - Compulsive reading


The April edition of Pacenotes Magazine is out now with more stories, more opinions, more reports and even more pictures. This one is a 'special issue' too with a strong 'Ford' theme throughout the content and includes reports from Rally Mexico, the Malcolm Wilson and Snowman Rallies, the Mayo, Bishopscourt and OrmCo Stages.

The Ford theme takes off with features on an ex-Billy Coleman West Cork Rally winning Escort Mk2 and an ex-Colin McRae Ford Focus WRC, while David Bogie talks about his highly modified Mk2. There's a peak behind the doors of Tom Blackwood's stunning drop dead desirable collection, Jamie Arkle looks back at the Escort Maxi Kit Car and the 'In the Spotlight' series features Johnnie Mulholland, Alex Allingham, Ross Weir and Frank Bird.

Columnists include the Belfast Telegraph's motoring and motor sports reporter Sammy Hamill who managed to spin an Escort RS2000 between the trees during a press day at Ingliston, Becs Williams recommends a Ford flavoured YouTube video to watch and Martin Holmes recounts stories of the military rule during Rally Argentina some 40 years ago.

And amidst all these interesting, enthralling, absorbing and technological revelations and insights there is a column from a certain Scottish based correspondent (??) who was given the keys to a 'works' Martini Ford and let loose on Knockhill! It may have had the name 'McRae' on the door and embroidered into the driver's seat - but it's not what you might think. Yeee-Haa!
