Looking at other sources there seems to be widespread confusion as to the finishing order, though all agree that Harvey/King were the winners.

Can anybody help?

Visiting European drivers were successful at the week-end in

the Rothmans Hong Kong Rally. Outright winners were Timo

Mäkinen and Henry Liddon in an Escort RS (3,609 penalties)

ahead of Roger Clark and Jim Porter (3,953 penalties) in a

similar car. Both were in ex-RAC Rally cars, bought and en-

tered by Harpers of Hong Kong, the local Ford importers.

Correct.  The car was then used in 1972/3 by, I think, Ford France for Guy Chasseuil on a few events, mostly on the driver-only rallies that were peculiar to France at that time.  Simca built the CG, an open top sports car, specially for these events which were clearly quite important in the French market. 

 

The GT70 proved unreliable and quite what Ford were thinking of to build a superlight and low GT car and then saddle it with the hefty old OHV V6 engine instead of fitting the up to the minute & far lighter 16 valve DOHC BDA, which by then would have been all-alloy and fuel injected, we will never know.  Unless someone here can tell us!  Another of Ford's expensive failures along with the F3L, RS1700T and the RS200 (though that wasn't really their fault!)

"In the early stages Frank Mazet/Jean Todt were going well in

the Ford GT70, lying second to Larousse in the prototype

category, but the mid-engined Boreham car left the road irretriev-

ably on the fourth test at Le Minier."

From vague memory, did Ford France eventually realise this and swap the V6 in the Chasseuil car for a BDA towards the end of the programme?

Tour de France 1971

"The GT70 was a completely new and lighter car entered and serviced by Ford Cologne and driven by Francois Mazet/John Todt."

"Further up the road Mazet clipped a bridge with the GT70 which then spun round into a wall and was badly damaged,"
