SCX Ford Escort MKII No.1 Allied Polymer - Lombard RAC Rally 1975.
Timo Makinen and Henry Liddon
For almost five decades now, the Finnish drivers are among the most competitive drivers in the Rally World Championship. Timo Mäkinen is one of the best examples of the Flying Finns, the name given to the most successful drivers from the Scandinavian country, and which includes other legends such as Timo Salonen, Ari Vatanen or Hannu Mikkola. Mäkinen honoured the Finnish team by achieving several victories in the decade of the 70s.
The most well-known were the ones which led him to dominate the prestigious British RAC Rally: nothing less than three consecutive victories, all of them behind the wheel of a Ford Escort MKII and with Henry Liddon. The combination of the Scandinavian´s hands, the knowledge of the Liddon terrain and the capacity of one of the most competitive cars of that time, the Escort, led Mäkinen to beat legends such as the tremendous Lancia Stratos or the legendary Alpine-Renault A110, among others.
The model which SCX have reproduced corresponds to the 1975 edition of the RAC Rally, disputed, as was the tradition, on the roads of Wales. There, Mäkinen and the Escort RS (Rally Sport) were unrivalled, and took the three places on the podium, with the hot rod sponsored by Allied Polymer on the top spot.
