One of the biggest, shiniest and fastest shows for all things Blue Oval built and RS powered rattled the scenery at Santa Pod yesterday, with plenty of big-bhp and big-dB drag strip action, miles of RS owners car club stands – featuring every era of gorgeous Ford metal – and a chrome-packed show ‘n’ shine all keeping a Sunday sun-treated Pod crowd nicely busy. I even got a tan!
A big thank you again goes out to our Performance Direct show car buddies – Danny and Robert – who graced our show stand with two Blue-Oval-belters in bright white; a MK2 Focus RS and a Series II Escort RS Turbo, both of them beautifully presented to the passing Ford fans. A cracking show this one with the very best from Ford’s UK-centric peoples’ performance cars and a fine example of the strength, quality and camaraderie that makes up the UK’s enthusiast car club scene.
Danny’s MK2 Focus RS – unashamedly standard and perfect
Rob’s super-clean Series ” Escort RS Turbo. Up for sale – he has an even rarer Escort to concentrate on. Call Rob with around £4k ready, on 07869 207576
Performance Direct show babes Michelle and Hayley making this chap’s day!
