Icon Game ForzaHorizon4
The #5 Ford Escort is perhaps the most iconic rally car of all time; built to Group 4 spec, it won the first WRC world championship for drivers in 1979, while being driven by Swedish rally driver Björn Waldegård, aka Walle, sporting the iconic British Airways livery.
Between 1977 and 1979, driving the #5 Escort, Waldegård would win WRC races in Kenya, Wales, Sweden, Greece, and Canada; some of the most punishing rally races in the world.
To this day, Waldegård still holds the record for the oldest driver to win a World Rally Championship event, and holds 16 total WRC wins to his name.
