Formula Photographic Rallying

After over 17 years of watching and filming from the sidelines, it was time for Formula Photographic to put together a team and go rallying. With a love of both classic cars and rallying, it only made sense to campaign a rear-wheel drive historic-spec car.

The Car: 1971 Ford Escort Mk1

  • 2.0L Ford Pinto Motor w/ dual Weber 42’s, built by Ivey Motors in Portland

  • Rear-wheel drive, English axle w/ Quaiffe LSD and semi-floating half-shafts.

  • Titan dry-sump oil system.

  • Bilstein coilovers, with 5-link turreted rear suspension.

  • Summit Technologies Raptor wireless steering wheel controls.

  • Summit Technologies Talon solid-state control panel

  • Pyrotect custom-shaped FIA fuel cell

The Team:

Driver: Warwick Patterson - Squamish, BC
