This an Escort Cosworth that is undergoing a full rebuild.

The owner Turhan Turker was kind enough to email me the pictures.

As you can see the damn fuelcell is an FT3 and look at the manufacture date, it's not a fuckin pre 98 it was built in 2004 so the midwest mafia needs to STFU.

I don't see a damn bulkhead, do you ??

This is legal for FIA, 100% legal, it is nothing but a bag tank and an aluminium shell on the outside.

Cheers

Thanks for the pics. Wow looks like the strut towers are lower then on a Sierra.

I found a picture of a NASA road race car with tank mounted just like JVL did with Skye's car, but it was in an Audi. I didn't see a bulk head, though I only had one view.

No. They need a complete 2.5" Lexan shield between the rest of the car and the fuel cell, and, one of the two required small fire extinguishers can be mounted directly to the Lexan.

And we shall never forget the bells, two 3' diameter cow bells must be mounted hanging vertically from the main hoop of the roll cage, to bug the shit out of the driver and codriver, of course to keep them awake.
