Well, the Blue Oval also has a solution for that, introducing the Focus ST-R, a racer that will be available to North American race teams soon.
This is a turn-key race car, so it has been homologated according to US and Canadian touring car racing specification. However, the vehicle will eventually also be offered on other markets.
So, what makes it special? It will be able to cater to all your motorsport needs, as it comes with goodies such as a track-tuned suspension, a stripped interior and a roll cage.
In addition to that, Ford explains that the car will allow its engineers to evelop enhanced parts for upcoming road-going performance cars.
"Because the Focus ST-R is a production-based road race car, it features stock body panels and production parts where possible," said Jamie Allison, director, Ford Racing. "People who buy one will get will get a fully prepared race car that will only need communications equipment and the customer's decals to go racing. We've already had significant interest in this vehicle from numerous established race teams."
