SVT Focus Chasing a Vintage BMW Race Car

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.
