Why not show your enthusiasm for the Focus RS on your laptop/desktop by saving this epic picture as your computer wallpaper? Coming from Sytse Dijkstra, this wallpaper is showing us the Ford RS’ rich racing history in seven generations.
First in line looks like the Ford Escort RS. The Escort Mark II had a rich rallying history; winning the RAC Rally from 1975 to 1979, and in 1979 it was the vehicle that Björn Waldegård won the drivers’ title in at the World Rally Championship. Hannu Mikkola was the runner-up and Ari Vatanen was fifth that year, all of them driving Escort RS1800s. Also in the lineup is the Ford Capri, a car that Hans Heyer drove in 1973 at the Nürburgring.
The Ford RS is rich in racing history and the new Focus RS will carry on the torch. Ken block is certainly doing us and the RS predecessors proud by hooning it in the 2016 FIA World Rallycross Championship.
