You might be interested to know that apart from offering a full range of competitively priced, local servicing and repair work on all marques of vehicles, we also sponsor and prepare an Escort rally car.

Contesting our first rally of the new season recently, the first event was a resounding success for the Lessian Motors/GPM Rally Team.Run jointly with Ripon based PR & Marketing company, GPM, the 1976 Ford Escort MkII RS2000 will be competing on a number of forest rally events over the course over this year.

Driving the GPM Escort MkII RS2000 on the Riponian Rally, which consisted of 12 forest stages within the North Yorkshire Moors National Park, Graeme Powell, GPM’s Director, battled against 70 other crews, to finish first in class.

“Out of the 80 cars that started the event, just 45 cars managed to finish, proving that the rally was a real test of man and machine over the mixture of muddy, wet, and at times, deeply rutted gravel stages,” said Graeme. “I’m very pleased with this opening result. It’s a credit to the commitment, technical knowledge and experience devoted to the car by the Lessian Motors team.”

We look forward to seeing you soon, for all your vehicle servicing requirements.
