It was around a year ago now that I shot this car for Gert Botes. It's his Mk1 Escort that's seen on track in the South African Historic Racing Series in the pre-'79 Saloons class, and it's arguably the best looking one of the lot. Besides being a racecar, it's one of the neatest and cleanest Escorts I've seen in the metal and uses many of the best components on the market today. As pretty as the car is, it's fast too, having taken Gert to many podium spots in the classes it runs in.
Not only is this machine built by Gert himself, he has loads of Escorts in various states of tune at his workshop, a place any Ford fan will kill to visit. He builds cars for clients, in both race and street spec. I snapped a few of these cars when I did the shoot, and you'll see them below. This shoot was good fun, and of course being a Ford fan made it even more special. A big thanks goes to Gert and Neoline for the opportunity to shoot the car.
Have a look at the shoot below...
