James Rogers had been building his perfect car, a black Ford Escort RS Cosworth, only to have it stolen while it was getting a simple repair. Help us find a fellow enthusiast's one-of-a-kind petrolhead masterpiece.
McLaren may not have won the F1 constructors’ championship for 13 years, but it’s certainly not for the lack of young talent. Pictured here is a pedal car race for the children of Formula One people from 1969, and the girl in the top car, team founder Bruce McLaren’s three-year-old daughter Amanda, had serious…
The Ford Sierra RS500 Cosworth has a serious reputation as a legendary rally machine. In case you've forgotten why, want to be reminded, or didn't know to begin with, watching and listening to this vintage racing footage will sum it up nicely.
