We are always more than happy to hear from Jesse Crosse, whose expertise on the track and iconic Ford Escort RS MK2 make the perfect match for our Kumho Ecsta C03. This time, Jesse was taking on the Bolton Midnight Stages rally at Snetterton, which was the final round of the Motorsport News Circuit Rally Championship.
See below the reasons behind his tyre of choice – the Kumho Ecsta C03.
“The weather was fine and dry, so I went for the usual tyre option of Kumho Ecsta C03 moulded slicks with the super-soft K12 compound at the front and the K22 soft compound behind. I ran the super-soft all round at Donington previously but with the all the grunt from the engine going through the rears, they were getting a tad hot and the handling a bit lairy. The firmer compound on the rear would cure that while giving maximum possible grip.” Crosse, PistonHeads.
Competition was tight and the team were smashing it until there was an issue with the Ford Escort’s new exhaust system. To read about out all of the action, click here to read Jesse’s full blog post over on Piston Heads. And be sure to check out the On-Board video below:
