First test at Hockenheim for the Team Schirmer 2010 CSL Cup car

Hi Folks

Just registered on this forum, but thought you guys might be interested in this.

I went to Hockenheim on Monday for the first testday with my new racecar. It's not the fastest of laps as its my first time driving a sequential gearbox, and its left hand drive, but I had great fun regardless.

Needless to say the car is incredible and I'm extremely happy with it. Schirmer Race Engineering have created a monster!

The video is here

I'm from Scotland, UK - but the car travels between the UK and Germany.

The 6 speed e46 M3 isn't slow!!!! It's a great car

He was going well - I don't know Fords very well now but it was some form of turbo'd car. I still can't believe they let us speed through the narrow pits

it looks like it was a Focus RS with an aftermarket rear valance. They have 300hp stock. Otherwise it might have been a chipped Focus ST which has 225hp stock. Funnily enough both have the 5-cyl Volvo engine (just different turbos) which we have in our new V70 putting out 245hp chipped.

It was a german trackday, not 100% sure who ran it. Well run though, rules were incredibly flexible compared to UK trackdays

I think you're right, it was probably the RS but modified I believe. I'm told it was quite light too - the car was stripped out and setup as a racecar. I was running with maximum ballast so the car was in its heaviest setup - thats my excuse
