The Cars

Weir Rallying UK compete in a fully rebuilt Ford Escort MK II, affectionately known as Black Beauty.

Having switched to a brand new Jondel engine for 2019, known for its high levels of performance, we feel this is the right step for the team to achieve greater success as we move forward.

With a complete overhaul in early 2019, our cars feature a 2 litre BDG carbureted engine coupled to a ZF 5 speed gearbox which is in turn connected to an Atlas axle. With the benefit of two identical cars, one configured for gravel and loose surfaces making it ideal for forestry events, whilst the other has the suspension tuned for tarmac and sealed surfaces.

We're proud to have our cars prepared and supported by Dave Jenkins Motorsport, a leading UK specialist in rally cars, and specifically in Escorts MK I and MK II.
