Do you have any more plans for this car? If so, what?: I plan to Supercharge the car next. Making the Worlds First Twin Charged Mk2 Focus RS ?

If you could change anything on your car, what would it be, and why?: Nothing. It’s perfect right now.

Previously owned cars?: Many…..Vauxhalls, Seat, VW, BMW

What car would you like next?: I really want to own a Ford Escort Cosworth so that will happen at some point. There aren’t many modern cars that do it for me at the moment. Maybe a nice M4 or M5 Beemer.

Focus RS

My love of cars has been passed down from my father. He also loved his Fast Fords and I grew up with XR2’s, XR3’s and Turbo versions. The car of my teenage years was the Ford Escort Cosworth hence my need to own one at some stage. That was the car that the footballers of the day had. Nowadays it’s Lambos and Ferraris.

To be honest Ford went through a period of producing really dull cars so only when the Mk2 Focus RS arrived I got interested in Fords. Before that I had Vauxhall VXRs and Seat Leon Cupra R. I remember the first time seeing a Focus RS. I walked over to it almost in a trance. The next day I went to the local ford dealer and bought one there and then that had been a cancelled order. Pure luck.

From that moment on I wanted to build a car that was a scene leader. Pushing boundaries at every stage and that is what happened and the result is the car I have today. The brief given to my Tuning company ‘JamSport’ is to think outside the box and to do things that haven’t been tried anywhere else. In the Ford tuning scene the car commonly known as Blue Rocket has its own fan base and is well known on Facebook and Instagram.
