Here is a selection of photos from Martinstown based JMD Rallyteam's first test of Niall Donnelly's new MkII Escort.

This car has been almost 2 years in the making, and runs a Vauxhall 1.6 16V engine, coupled to a sequential gearbox. The colour scheme is a mirror image of Oran Donnelly's Pinto-engined MkII (Niall's brother), with the green and black colours flipped.

Niall, with navigator Eamon Gallagher, is well know among the rallying community for his antics in his previous car...a Kawasaki racing green rear-wheel drive Ford Fiesta. The lads are stepping up a class with the new car, but I have no doubt they will aquit themselves well!

Also along for a test was Jordan Williamson, Mervyn Williamson's son, in his Vauxhall Corsa. Jordan competes in the Alltrack series.
