Between 1968 and 1981 the Ford Escort was probably the most successful rally car in the world. Rallying became progressively more glamorous, the teams and drivers more famous, and the cars became more colourful, in that period. European, then World, Championships were set up and prospered. The Escort won its first major International rally in April 1968, and its last in mid-1981. The brand won the World Rally Championship on several occasions during that time, its drivers won the Drivers’ Championship twice, and the Escort was the standard by which all other rally cars were judged throughout that 13-year period. The Ford-UK factory and its closest associates built no fewer than 113 Mk I cars of all types (1968 to 1974), and 55 Mk 2 cars (1975 to 1981). This new book covers all of these vehicles, car-by-car detailing build details, colour schemes, competition history, technical development. Every individual car is illustrated in its principal liveries using archive pictures and several of the more important cars have been specially photographed in great detail.

Graham Robson has been involved with motor cars since the late 1950s, as a designer, a development engineer, a motorsport manager, and an author and historian. Starting in Coventry when that city was still the centre of Britain’s motor industry, he worked at Jaguar, at Standard-Triumph, and at Chrysler UK. He competed in international rallies in the Rootes, Triumph and Ford works teams
He first began to write about cars, motorsport and automotive history in 1960 and spent some years on Autocar magazine before becoming an independent motoring writer, author and historian in the early 1970s. Since then he has travelled widely, has carried out assignments for publishers and motor companies in several continents, and become the most prolific of authors.He was one of the first enthusiasts to contribute to the new classic car movement, and is known as a true expert on older cars of all makes and nationalities. Over the years he has had more than 125 books published, many of them with a historical or technical theme, including biographies and definitive company, one-make and one-model studies.
