I met Geert via the Nomad Racing guest book. He
mentioned he had an Escort Cosworth, I e-mailed him, and he we are a
week later with some lovely pictures, and a fine car to match.
He’s 25 years old and lives in Turnhout which is a
small town close to the Dutch border in Belgium.
While talking, Geert mentioned to me he is coming
over to England in the summer to visit M A Developments for a 330
conversion. Oddly enough, MAD is where I get all my work done, and
so we plan to meet up in the summer. If there’s any other Cossie
owners out there who fancy a trip to South-East England for sometime
between 9th – 30th July, for an enjoyable day,
But back to Geert’s car……
He’s not had it long. He bought it Saturday 14th
April 2001, and tells me without question it’s the best car he’s
ever had !! The car is a Pacifica Blue example from 09/09/92, and
so it has the larger T34 Garrett turbo.
Since purchasing it, Geert has added a Group N fuel
pump, dark green injectors, stainless steel exhaust. And upped his
boost to a healthy 1.6bar (23.2psi), which means 265bhp @ 5.830rpm,
with 366Nm (270lbs/f) torque @ 4250rpm (proven recently on a dyno –
pics above and below).
Further modifications on the car (not by Geert) are

Subtle changes, which really enhance a car like
Geert’s are a new carbon front splitter (ordered at Graham Goode
(UK)), and clear front and side indicators and half smoked rear
light clusters. Also a 300km/h white dial kit from Wolf Germany and
a special handmade short shift alu stick.
The car is an original Ford Escort RS Cosworth (i.e.
not a “lux”) and so doesn’t have leather seats. But he does have
those beautiful Recaro racing seats, which Geert (and I) absolutely
