Not sure if this happens for some of the other vehicles in the game but the MK1 Escort in the historic trophy races flips and rolls if any other car touches it, it doesn't seem to matter what force is used or what speed as even the slightest touch at a slow speed sends it flipping off the track during cornering, I have basically skipped every single race in the historic trophy because of it. Such a shame as the handling of the car is pretty good.

A fix is in the works.

There are also some gearing issues with the Escort. It is fine in the hands of an AI driver, but problematic for the player.

I've done all the Mk1 Escort races and not had this problem have you tried different car settings?

Ps4 user. Same issues. Doesn't seem to matter how gentle some touches are, it often ends in a catastrophic reaction. Shame, as i have always had an affinity for the old mark one, owned a few over the years.

this happened to me as well, I would try to keep my distance and still no matter the slightest touch or bump from another escort and whamo, flipping on my side. I just ran the races out and well, I'll be staying away from those historic escorts from now on.. oof
