RS History DVD Released
Discover the legend of the RS Fords from RS1600 to 2010 Focus RS500 with Duke’s new DVD, The Story of the RS Fords.
The DVD explores the complete story of Ford’s Rallye Sport models, from the very early days of Walter Hayes and the Advanced Vehicles Operation to the Focus RS500.
The story is told by the men behind the Rallye Sport revolution, including Mike Moreton and Stuart Turner, who were at the very heart of the RS legend. They reveal the internal politics, the successes and disasters, the secrets of the now iconic Rallye Sport cars and how a hardy band of dedicated professionals helped revolutionise the Ford name in Europe.
The RS name wouldn’t exist without motorsport, and to that end the DVD features Tony Mason, co-driver to Roger Clark on the famous 1972 RAC Rally victory, Malcolm Wilson, former World Rally Championship driver and now head of Ford’s WRC effort, as well as modern Ford WRC stars Mikko Hirvonen and Jari-Matti Latvala.
The film includes classic archive, rarely-seen Ford promo clips and unique concept drawings and photographs from the personal collections of Turner and Moreton featuring all the most important Rallye Sport models: the Escort RS1600, RS1800, RS2000 and RS Cosworth, the Sierra RS Cosworth and the 2010 Focus RS500. Plus, of course, the awesome Group B RS200.
The Story of the RS Fords is a must for any RS enthusiast, and is out now on DVD, priced £16.99 and is available from leading video outlets or direct from Duke Video.
