Independent Reviews

Review from Fast Ford magazine, June 2007

There's no doubting the works Mk1 Escorts were legends, and Graham Robson confirms this in his new book on the multiple rally winner. Covers the birth, development and career of the original Escort with 100 archive images.

Review from Old Stager magazine, May 2007

I constantly struggle to see the book that I'm looking for in the bookcase. So, I for am delighted to see that the new series of Rally Giants by Graham Robson all have matching grey spines with the name of the featured car clearly marked.

Three have already been released by Veloce Publishing and feature the MkI Escort, Subaru Impreza and the Lancia Stratos.

The books each describe the birth of each 'rally giant' and the author chronicles the development, politics, successes and failures of the cars. The style and format offers an easy read and the ability to dip into each book as and when.

There are plenty of excellent photos (both mono and colour) and sections covering the personalities that shaped the various cars' development as well as the star drivers.

The best news though is that Graham Robson is working on another dozen or so books to include the Austin-Healey 3000 through to the WRC Ford Focus – I can't wait!

Review from The Motor Cycling Club Ltd

It’s three for the price of one this time as I have been reading the Ford Escort Mk1, Subaru Impreza and Lancia Stratos in the Rally Giants series, written by Graham Robson and published by Veloce and thoroughly recommend all three volumes. Priced at £14.99, each has an interesting 8 x 8in format with about 125 pages containing lots of well chosen pictures, mostly in colour, so looks impressive enough for the coffee table, yet due to the author’s experience and attention to getting his facts right, must have a place in the serious enthusiast’s bookshelves, from whence they will frequently be taken as a source of reference.

What I really enjoyed most though is the way in which Graham has made a readable tale from what so easily could have been equally factual but totally boring. The author knew and worked in the rally world with the people and events he describes so brings out their characters and the behind the scenes action not always appreciated at the time.

Review by Mike R for Classics Monthly, April 2007

This publications traces the history of one of the most successful rally cars ever. Ford's Escort came in RS1600, 2000 and Twin Cam models, and all are covered here with period photos of production lines and cars in competition. A useful book that contains a lot of information for the Escort's many fans.

Review from Classic Ford magazine, March 2007

Another tome from the pen of Classic Ford’s very own contributor Graham Robson and part of Veloce's Rally Giants series, Ford Escort Mkl is a great read for any old school rally lovers.

Review from Classic Car Mart, Spring 2007

Followers of rallying will be impressed with the latest new series of books from Veloce Publishing, going under the general moniker of Rally Giants.

The book is impressively high in quality. Fans of the MkI Escort will buy this book for its plethora of amazing photographs and illustrations – just about a hundred in all, most of them archive shots from the early Seventies and from a variety of sources. Action shots of such rallying legends as Roger Clark piloting various Escorts through some of the world’s most gruelling rallies are enough to make this book a worthwhile buy. But it’s the accompanying text that inevitably provides the biggest insight.

With Robson’s experience in the world of rallying and his own success at the wheel of numerous competition Escorts over the years, he’s able to provide a truly unique pe
