Phil Collins commissioned Quick Motorsport to build this car about 14 years ago to be able to compete on gravel Historic rallies and in particular the Roger Albert Clark Rally.

The Escort continued to be Phil’s primary focus on the Irish Tarmac circuit so the Ascona hasn’t done an awful lot of rallies. The highlight was 5th on a snowy RAC and winning Den Golding’s Swansea event outright including taking fastest times on Walter’s Arena, beating Mark Solloway who tests there regularly.

Phil was lying 3rd in Killarney HIstorics in 2018 demonstrating the car’s undoubted speed on tarmac as well as gravel. An engine failure prevented a finish but caused it to be fully rebuilt and a small clutch bolt problem meant the car has done very little mileage since its full rebuild for last year’s RAC.

It is Phil’s age and subsequent retirement that has brought this sale about and Phil is keen to see the car go to the right owner who will use it as intended.
