Rally News (2)
Racing’s Mike Jordan (and co-driver Howard Pridmore) had a
monster accident in their Ford Escort last weekend, on the Epynt
Ranges. The car flipped and rolled at the Devil’s Leap, the
front of the 1970 spec. rollcage then collapsing around them.
of Jordan’s helmet can be seen in the roof of the car (below
- Jordan himself on the 'phone in the background), which was a complete
write-off. Fortunately Mike Jordan had only superficial injuries,
which included bruises to his wrists, caused by the roof pinning
them against the steering wheel.
Mike Jordan vows to find
another shell, and carry on rallying – but is pressing for
more up to date cages to be allowed in older rally cars.
Park will be less of an adventure for he and Mark Sumpter this weekend.
