The folk who make up the Ford RS Owners Club of Victoria have been celebrating their love of sporty small Fords for over 25 years. Club president John Masci explained, “Back then a few guys with RSs and Escorts, who are still around today as life members, got together to start a club.
An example of an RS Club elder is Derek Wickett, our Number 1 Life Member; he’s still actively involved with the club.”
The club is just back from a 20-car five-day run touring NSW, that included a visit to the Mt Panorama circuit.
Planning is well advanced for the next effort, the ‘Small Ford Sunday’ show on February 4, 2018. It’s to be held in aid of the charity Deaf Children Australia at the charity’s facility in St Kilda Road Melbourne.
Over 250 small Fords will be on display. The club’s aim is to encourage restoration, modification, preservation and use of Ford RS vehicles and other small Fords. It puts on a range of varied events and provides technical assistance to members.
It also arranges procurement or in some cases manufacture of hard to get parts. Club Permit Scheme registration and access to CAMS licences are also offered.
Membership is open to RS owners or small-Ford enthusiasts with Escort, Cortina, Capri, Anglia, Sierra, Fiesta and Focus. models.
