  • From show car to Race car

    Since the full refurb of the ex Nelly 444 mk1 Escort , Darren Anslow has done 2 NEC Autosport shows and 2 MWA shows with the car . It is now time to go racing !

    The car has been o n a wild trip since built by Neil Edwin over 14 years ago ; it was sold on and the space frame removed for an all steel front end raced by Carl Checkley 862  ; he piled it in the wall at Hednesford , the car then went to Roger Wright. 

    Roger didn’t race the car but it was sold onto 222 ShaneTaylor who took wins with the car , Dez Green was next to handle the car before it was sold to Midland Banger team Captain Scott Hill 999 of the Scrapyard Screamers. 

    Darren purchased the car form Scott and made a  lot of changes ; a freshen up of the roll cage , fresh front suspension and a all new rear . The car is now ready to race again !
