It’s been a while, but I’ve been working on a pretty special film. The Escort Cosworth is one of, if not my all-time favourite car. And I’ve driven one…for you!
It’s taken twenty years for Ford to bring out anything close to rivaling the ‘Cossie’ for performance and extravagance, but the company will tell you they’ve done just that with the Mk3 Focus RS. So of course, purely in the name of scientific balance (and poetry!), I got my hands on one of those too.
The results of my fairly-conducted, controlled scientific test of the two cars (yeah, right!) are, I suppose quite predictable. But there are a few things in there that you maybe wouldn’t expect. Or maybe you would. Either way, I met some great people, drove some great cars, and hopefully you’ll agree produced a great film all in the name of one of the most iconic cars that ever…err…lived.
Film lands soon. Here’s a trailer to get you excited…
