Thanks Peter, I also re-read MotorSport and found that D.S.J. had already done the research!! Love the bit about it finding its way into Doc Merfield's mad Cortina, it helps with the Special Saloon research we are doing too! Thank you.

Wouldn't it be great to see the Cortina FPE back in action - preferably road registered where it would make a highly amusing Q car...

Oh yes. Though quite a few of us would love to see it at a CSCC Special Saloon meet :-) B.T.W. do you happen to know which edition of Motor Racing contained the track test, I'll look out for it at Race Retro.

I think it's also reprinted in the Motor Racing end of year annual.
