PP's weekend quiz

Recommended Posts

Close but no cigar...yet.

Not Capri, other models... struggling to give clues without giving it away.

Okay, just to confirm it was Ford. But a certain range of Fords.

As it's getting near cut-off point, I'll give you the answer.

I am Colin Stancombe and brought in by Ford Motor company to engineer and create the 'XR' fast Ford models. These included Fiesta XR2, Escort XR3 and Sierra XR4.

I did actually appear in 2014 on Wheeler Dealers when they restored a MKI XR2. Mike and Edd asked how we developed ordinary family cars into sporting versions.

At the time VW Golf GTI was beating all-comers so Ford had to act quickly in the sector.

Mr. P owned the XR3 and XR4i.

I have raced cars but the Fords raced that I designed was the Fiesta.
