1972 Safari Rally

Gartrac continued developing parts for the Escort Mk1 rally cars. In the early 1970s another famous victory was Hannnu Mikkola and Gunnar Palm's 1972 Safari Rally win in the Escort RS 1600. The pair would take an early lead which they never lost and became the first non-African crew to win the East African Safari Rally.
