Taken from British Rally forum
White Mk2 Escort reg no NLF227V fitted with a 2 litre Zetec engine with twin 45's on a Weber alpha management system.
The theft was recorded on CCTV (the car was in a yard with lots of expensive plant machinery but was the only thing taken). Stolen from Maidstone.
It's white with RS1800 style stripes down the side, it has large arches and a roof vent. The front spoiler is a bit battered where cones have got in our way. Drivers side also has some marking behind the rear wheel arch where we clobbered a pallet. Front end has additional holes drilled to get air to the oil cooler.
It's fitted with Motordrive seats (one wide, one narrow), the cage is welded in. Brake servo located in passenger footwell behind footrest.
"The engine is a standard 2 litre Zetec on twin 45's with Weber alpha management - it's well under 200bhp in its current state of tune. Engine mods were something we were thinking about but we needed to get the handling sorted before going for more power.
We don't think it was joy riders - the car was in a gated, locked yard, covered by CCTV, it's not on a main road (the yard is served by its own dedicated road) so it's not in plain view of any casual passers by. They had to move some other stuff to get the rallycar out, it would be too much hassle for a casual joyrider, some utter *beep* just wanted our car."
