Ford Escort RS1800 rally car Goodwood Festival of Speed

The 2013 Goodwood Festival of Speed takes place from July 12 to 14. Its Spring launch day typically features a multitude of uber-powerful supercars and iconic racers indulging in a short blast up the famous Goodwood hill, but evo features editor Henry Catchpole had designs on a squirm around the rally course.

A rundown of the car and some slithering around between the trees can be seen in the video above…
