Ford Fair 2013: Track Traffic

Most people would consider Ford Fair a show, some owners however, see it as just a busy track day with considerably more spectators than usual. They aren’t interested in shiny cars or ear splitting ICE installs, just laying down rubber around Silverstone and trying to burn off as much V-Power as possible per session.

You can spot these folk a mile off, their car will not have been cleaned prior to the event. To them wax is something stuck to their ear plugs at the end of the session not smeared on the paint then buffed off. A layer of black soot deposited above the exahust is a proud badge of a rich fuelling setup. Battle scars acquired over numerous events adorn the bodywork and practicality takes a back seat, or at least it would if these cars had back seats.

Intermixed with the hardcore, the glossy paint of the occasional track dweller sits nervously alongside the veterans, with equal measure of excitement and trepidation. The Mk2 Focus RSs congregated here were taking part in an exclusively Revo Technik customer session, generously funded by the company themselves.

Catching a static glance of the pure track cars can be tricky as the the drivers will often spend all day in the perpetual loop from on-track to the starting paddock, but thanks to a media pass we were able to access and snap these.
