After I attended the media launch of the Ford Focus ST, I found a competition Ford was running entitled, The Ford ST Experience. I entered immediately as the grand prize is an exclusive VIP behind-the-scenes tour of the Ford Focus Factory in Germany and secret testing ground in Belgium, homes to the All-New Focus ST!!
A few weeks later, I got an email notifying me that I was one of a couple of hundred people who had won an “ST Experience” all around SA! I was told to head for the Swartops Racetrack and my Glugster went with me with the intention of waiting for me (I don’t like to drive in the rain) and we discovered that he was allowed to attend the event with me!
Our rides were filmed with special cameras inside and outside the car, and I was VERY lucky to be taken on three laps around the racetrack with Gary Formato as my driver!
And for your amusement, here’s my video (I’ve watched a couple of the other videos and I can’t believe the other people are so quiet)!
