To me, this is the quintessential lapping day experience -- my car running well, chasing a car of comparable capability on a sunny summer afternoon at the track. Would have been nice to have my R-compounds on, but very fun nonetheless. It does not get much better than this for me at a lapping day.
This was probably either a BMW 1600 or 2002 (did not check it in the paddock), but in any event, body was definitely from that that era of vehicle (60s to 70s). BUT: No telling what is under the hood at this point.

DOMINANT ENGINEERING SVT Focus Custom Exhaust
Custom Stainless steel Exhaust
fabricated by me. 2.5" from the header all the way back to the muffler with

Also take a look at my flickr gallery for more pics of the Exhaust and other things I have made:
430HP Ford Focus RS Wolf Racing - Acceleration with Backfiring Sound!
This time I have filmed a Wolf Racing Ford Focus RS 400 Stage 2 equipped
with Milltek Non resonated cat back Exhaust racing on a closed airfield against
other cars. Wolf Racing upgrades the 2.5 five-cylinder turbocharged engine up to 430HP and 580Nm!
Although the fact is that the RS is for a while on the market, it sounds
pretty good! Especially with an aftermarket Exhaust system like Milltek, Mongoose, Mountune
or Wolf Racing!
Modifications on this Ford Focus RS:
-WOLF Stainless steel Exhaust system
with 200 cells KAT
-WOLF / DREXXLER Sperdiff
-WOLF / H&R Coilovers
-WOLF hand brake

The Ford Focus, doesn't exactly ooze forecourt appeal, but it has always
impressed out on the test drive.
However, having a great chassis isn't enough these days. To impress people,
a modern family hatchback has to be stylish, economical, luxurious and
packed full of the latest technology. And the MK3 Focus was starting to
feel a bit lacking in these areas.
That's why Ford has given the Focus one of the most extensive mid-life
updates in history, while retaining the same starting price of £13,995.
The most obvious change is to the looks. The car now gets the Aston
Martin-esque grille and sleeker headlamps like the Fiesta. The rear has
been given similar treatment with new bumpers and new light clusters.
There's a punchy new 1.5-litre turbo
petrol which can return over 50mpg and a 1.5-litre diesel which can do
74mpg and emits under 100g/km CO2 so is free from road tax.
The existing 1.0-litre EcoBoost
petrol, which is one of the best, if not the best engine of its kind on the
market is still available, too. In higher power 125bhp guise it has just
about enough performance for a car of this size and Ford says it can do
One of the biggest challenges ford has faced with the Focus was trying to
make it feel as upmarket inside as a Volkswagen Golf. All but the entry
level car has a new 8-inch touchscreen system which not only looks good,
but is easier to operate than the old system which had a confusing array of
buttons. There's also the new SYNC system which has a much better array of
useful voice commands and is easier to use.
Refinement has been improved, and the suspension has been changed to make
it more cushioning over bumps. The steering is slightly sharper over the
previous model, too.
So then, as before the Focus is a car which will impress on the test drive.
Importantly, the improvements to the looks, technology, economy and the
quality, are clear and so the new Ford Focus is now more likely to impress
people on the forecourt too.
