A meeting with a Focus RS
A chance to shoot the new RS a week after it went on sale
Facebook can be handy at times, we know that, but when I spotted a friend was about to take delivery of a brand new Focus Rs as they went on sale, I jumped down his throat to the offer of a shoot of these beautiful machines.
The Focus RS I photographed, owned by Luke Morgan was taken through its paces on the Epynt hill climb by Luke, who frankly, considering its a month old 34 grand car had no reservations as he thrashed the 4WD hot hatch through the chicanes and ropey ribbon of tarmarc, with so little margin of error im blown away by this mesmerising up hill sprint.
The part time rally driver hinted at a possible hillclimb during the shoot and I didnt doubt him!
Especially when during the shoot he took me for a blast in the Rs, and after a massive scare, he showed me his lunacy first hand, despite me seeing his driving at previous track days in his mk2 Escort
