ST couldn't shake me
I'm driving a 147 2 litre twinspark. Had some fun today on an A road with a Ford Focus ST. He couldn't shake me in 10 miles of fast curves and straights. I got past him on a motorway slip road in 3rd and then he pushed into the fast lane and risked his licence. I stayed with him and then dropped back after a few miles when we hit the speedcams.
OK, the 147 hasn't the grunt of an ST but I was well pleased with the way the car came alive in a competitive situation, especially in the higher rev range. It was like the car knew it was competing.
Lovely. What's not to like?
