Bertie Fisher was Ireland's most successful rally driver of all time. Bertie achieved 20 Irish Tarmac Championship wins including three Circuit of Ireland victories in 1995, 1997 and 1999. His rallying career began as a teenage navigator in the late 1960s before he made the move to driving in 1971. A significant development in the early part of his career was his link‐up with Dungannon rally engineer Sydney Meeke. Meeke first worked with Fisher at the 1975 Circuit of Ireland and the partnership continued for the rest of the Fermanagh man's career.
Fisher's talent and more importantly, dedication, were obvious from the outset when, in 1979, he acquired the MK2 Escort previously driven by British rally star Russell Brookes. Improvement was immediate with Bertie taking third place at the 1979 Circuit of Ireland in the car modelled here.
The Mk II Escort is without a doubt the most iconic rally car in the world, recording five consecutive RAC Rally victories from 1975 - 1979, and a variety of other international rally wins. Ford had many successful drivers during this period, for example, Roger Clark, Hannu Mikkola and Bjorn Waldegaard.
