Independent Tyre Test - The Results

In the world of modern tyres it is common place to come across a tyre test. However in the world of classic tyres the investment never seems to be there to do a proper modern tyre test. However a German magazine in July 2016 conducted this modern tyre test using classic tyres. This classic tyre test has been translated from German to English. What is remarkable in this tyre test is quite how well the PIRELLI CINTURATO ™ CN36 classic tyre performed in the table at the end. The scores in this table are not scored in relationship to the other tyres in the test, so when a score of 1 is recorded, then that is a perfect score for a classic tyre or a modern tyre. It is wonderful to see that these classic PIRELLI CINTURATO ™ CN36 tyres can give such exemplary results.

History of the Ford Escort

Built as a replacement to the Anglia in 1967 across factories in Germany and Britain, the Mark One Escort would go on to be one of Ford's most popular cars outside the USA. There would later be versions available for rallying where it made a name for itself, in particular winning the 1970 London to Mexico World Cup Rally being driven by Hannu Mikkola. This would lead to the creation for the Ford Mexico in honour of this achievement; a special edition 1.6 L road version of the rally car.

The Mark Two Escort would take over in 1975, where it would also enjoy a successful rally career as well as popularity as a road car with L, GL, Sport, RSMexico, RS2000 and Ghia versions all being produced.
