Super long-time lurker, minimal poster. I'm the owner of Focaljet.com, a Ford Focus enthusiast website, and was part of a group of media who were invited to France to drive the upcoming 2013 Focus ST.
I spent approximately eight hours and 500 kilometers in a euro-spec Focus ST last week on some great roads just outside Vence, France. Half driving, and half as a passenger.
I thought my experience might be of some interest to TCL. So, without further ado, ask me anything.
