Alvin’s Mondeo is one of two built by Andy Rouse Engineering in March 1993, one was for Paul Radisich and the other for Andy. Readers may remember Nigel Mansell spectacularly writing off Andy’s car at Starkey’s Bridge, Donington Park. Paul had a very successful year in 1993 winning three races, one being at Brands Hatch, winning Ford’s 200th race, hence the unique number 200 sticker on the car.On October the 17th 1993, the Mondeo went to Monza, Italy for the FIA Challenge World Cup where it won both races, the car went on to finish 3rd in the 1993 BTCC Championship.

2011 for David was a year of injury and surgery. Having injured his hips in round 1 of the EWC, david went on to win the second round with the help of pain killers. Surgery, however, was always going to be needed. Two seperate operations on either hip put David out for most of the season, he came back after the summer to win the last 2 rounds of the BEC and the super-tough Weston Beach Race. More operations during the winter, this time on his recurring hernias, were made slightly easier by his meeting with the Queen, where he received a well deserved MBE for his services to sport.

What influenced you to convert your car to Evans Waterless Engine Coolants?

The engine has always had overheating problems, especially in the holding paddocks whilst waiting to go out on track, they were inherent problems that we could never overcome, then a friend on the racing circuit told me about Power Cool 180 and I decided to get in touch with the people at Evans directly. They told me that Power Cool 180 would not only eliminate the overheating but would improve performance and prevent corrosion and erosion... how could I ignore that!

So... what’s the verdict?

Overheating is now a thing of the past... I could tell the difference the first time I fired her up in the workshop. The cooling system is now completely under control, and as it’s running at a lower pressure there is reduced strain on hoses and other engine components, plus it’s protecting the engine. I’ve now got complete peace of mind on a previously problematic car, result!
