SJN 830R, MkII Escort RS1800, 1978 RAC Rally, Rugby Shirt

SJN 830R is the car that Hannu Mikkola & Arne Hertz used to achieve victory on the 1978 Lombard RAC Rally. The car was a MkII Escort RS1800 in the famous Eaton Yale Lift Trucks blue livery with Castrol stripes across the bonnet. The Escort won this event a further 7 times and became one of the most successful rally cars of all time. A young Finn by the name of Henri Toivonen broke the Escort domination in 1980 driving a Talbot Sunbeam. And the year after rallying was to change forever with the introduction of 4 wheel drive and the Audi Quattro, and Mikkola was victorious once again.

Our design takes classic elements from the great car brought together to make a truly unique rugby shirt. Slightly quirky, this will appeal to escort fans and rally enthusiasts alike, whilst leaving others simply wondering!
