Saturday

It's a FORD of course

Now here is a great hobby car.
Ideal to fill a Saturday afternoon with enough adrenalin for the rest of the week ahead.

Ford Fiesta

650 hp 
660 lb-ft torque at the wheels

0-60 in 1.9 seconds. Yes that is under two seconds.
To get an idea of this type of power and performance check this website. ZERO-60
A fast Porsche is coming in at the 3.6 to 4.00 second mark.


Don't want to be the chap on the Segway!  


Shot just south of Paris, France in Linas at l'Autodrome de Linas --Montlhéry, this 1.58 mile oval track, built in 1924, features banks as steep as 51 degrees, which is more than double the standard incline of most NASCAR ovals. Chosen by Ken for this specific reason, the ramp-like banking proved to be a unique and exciting challenge. The driving physics for the stunts performed were totally unknown until Ken attempted the maneuvers during filming.
