This Broadspeed Ford Escort was driven by racing ace and team owner John Fitzpatrick at Mallory Park in 1969.
John Fitzpatrick won many titles throughout his racing career. He still works within motorsport as a consultant doing corporate events and driver management as well as entering the occasional historic race.
Fitzpatrick first entered the British Saloon Car Championship (now known as the British Touring Car Championship) in 1964 driving a works Mini Cooper, finishing the season in second place overall behind Jim Clark. In 1966 he won the Championship driving a Broadspeed Ford Anglia. In 1971 Fitzpatrick won the Jarama 4 Hours in a works Ford Escort RS2000 along with many other races in both the UK and Europe.
In 1976 he won the Bathurst 1000 in an Australian Group C Holden Torana touring car with Bobby Morris driving for the Ron Hodgson Team. In a dramatic finish, Fitzpatrick nursed the Torana home trailing smoke over the last few laps.
Fitzpatrick was a regular driver at Bathurst, teaming up with many Australia’s greatest drivers.
Fitzpatrick also started John Fitzpatrick Racing with success in the World Sportscar Championship. Both as a driver and team owner, Fitzpatrick enjoyed success using the Porsche 956 with drivers such as Thierry Boutsen, Roberto Moreno, Rupert Keegan and racing journalist David Hobbs all driving JFR cars.
Scalextric first made the Ford Escort in 1970 and issued six liveries which, even today, are very desirable cars for the rally enthusiast. The all new Scalextric car improves upon the original model design in all area – detail, interior fittings, body shape, livery decoration and stunning performance.
The car is fitted with the super fast in-line FF motor and features Magnatraction™, easy change pick-ups and front & rear lights.
A standard Scalextric Ford Escort also won the Brooklands Test Hill Challenge in August 2009.
