Ford Fair 2013: Focus Pocus

Supernatural Focii

Last year I wrote about what I called a “quantity dilution” effect of so many Focus RSs being in one place making them less impactful. 12 months later I find myself the owner of an FRS but still of the same opinion, so you won’t find any photos of my near standard car below. What you will see is the best examples Ford Fair had to offer. As you might expect, my interest in the Focus has been magnified infinitely, hence there being over 100 images here compared to the 23 of 2012.

A year can be a long time in the modified Ford world and several cars seen last year now looked very difference indeed - Eric from KMS Motorsport’s previously Polestar blue FRS now sports a custom wrap, huge WRC rear wing, one off bonnet and monster brakes and Focus RS Direct’s “Optimus” RS500 has been unwrapped and treated to many new parts - more on that later.

Also playing chameleon were the “BA57ORD” RS500 on the KMS stand - last year still it’s original matt black and now rewrapped a pearl white, the Mountune Focus (yellow last year) and most interestingly what appeared to be an RS which had been resprayed in the ST’s Electric Orange. A quick check of the reg plate betrayed this though and revealed it to be an ST with the RS parts fitted. Extremely well done though and a credit to the owner.
