Looking for Info on SandBlast competitor

Looking for info on Brian Kirby.

 

He is listed as the co-driver for Michael Gillespie for the upcoming SanBlast Rally.

I think I read somewhere that he was listed as being from NY (but I don't know where I might have saw this).

 

Trying to find out if he is the same Brian Kirby who used to live in Pensacola, FL and was building a XR4Ti rally car before Hurricane Ivan ruined all his plans.

 

If anyone knows him or knows how I can get in touch with him, I would appreciate it much as I haven't spoken to him since the hurricane.

 

Also they are listed as driving a Mk2 Escort. Is this a European Mk2 Escort ('74-'80) or a American 2nd generation Escort ('91-'96)?

 

Thanks

 

Michael Gillespie Brian Kirby M2 Ford MK2 Escort

Matt, you disappoint me.

 

A guy who might be building a XR4Ti and you don't know every single thing about him, including his shoe size?

 

Thanks for the info on the Escort. I didn't realize there was one running in NASA.

Matt, when are you going to get your web page back on line?

 

I'm about to pick up my own XR4Ti in a couple weeks (no, not a rally one, just AutoX, PDX, TT, maybe some RallyX).

Thanks for noticing that it is down. I think it is going to back up shortly and greatly revamped. Matt Robinson (the other half of FireAnt! Racing) andles the webpage and has been busy with his day job. Look for more tech features on what we built and why we wish we had done it differently or why we like what we did on the new site.

Wow, small world. I was actually looking for info on the owner of the mk2 escort as I would be interested in the car if it ever comes up for sale.

I know of an Escort for sale for about 7000 Euros. It would need to be shipped from Finland, but it is in great shape with a bunch of goodies.
