I've been twice and it was well worth it. I'm currently set up for go back in April for my RS Adrenaline Academy experience. Do NOT miss out on this opportunity!
AutoGuide.com gathered six of the most significant new cars for the 2017 model year for our annual Car of the Year evaluations. This year, our contenders are the Hyundai Elantra, BMW M2, Volkswagen Golf Alltrack, Kia Optima, 2017 Ford Focus RS and Chevrolet Cruze. There was no hard price cap on this year’s entrants, but we tried to make sure none of them were extravagantly priced. We will release a new video on each contender every day leading up to Dec. 13, when we announce our winner. Stay tuned for our Crossover/SUV of the Year and Truck of the Year series, which is also coming soon!
This is the first time the 2017 Ford Focus RS has been offered in North America, and the hot hatch has a lot of enthusiasts very excited. The car basically builds on what drivers liked about the Focus ST and makes it even more hardcore.
The biggest upgrades to the rally-inspired racer are the all-wheel-drive system and the 2.3-liter EcoBoost four-cylinder that provides a very healthy 350 horsepower and 350 pound-feet of torque. Thatengine is hooked up exclusively to a slick six-speed manual sending power to all four wheels so drivers have maximum traction for powering out of corners and even drifting like the Ken Block proteges everyone aspires to be — the system can send up to 70 percent of the engine’s torque to the rear axle for maximum hoonage.

The 2017 Fiesta rendering saga continues with the image we all want to see: a possible preview of the hot Fiesta ST. It will arrive late next year, possibly at the Frankfurt Motor Show. But the question is: will she be a party animal or a bookworm?
Ford has had two chances to make the Fiesta RS and failed to do so, meaning the ST badge is as high as it's ever going to go. While I have no problem with that, I can also admit that it's not my favorite hot hatch. Sure, it's the best in the segment, but the MINI Cooper S has an extra dose of refinement and everyday eventfulness.
The differentiations is unlikely to change, but Ford is going to give its fans more stuff to play with. The lack of driving modes is one reason why the Fiesta ST is fun - Eco mode is your right foot, so is sports mode. But the next ST will have that and more. With how much money has been invested in the interior, we wouldn't be surprised if the engine sound comes through the speakers.
Nobody knows what's under the hood, but according to my hypothesis, it's the 1.5 EcoBoost, not the 1.6. Remember the 150 PS 2-liter from the old Fiesta ST? That one had 140 PS when it came out of the Focus. As for the 1.6 EcoBoost, it originated from the Focus too, where it makes 182 PS.
And since the 2014 mid-life facelift, the Focus has been using a 1.5-liter engine to make the same 182 PS. Considering Ford dumped huge amounts of money into making that engine, I don't see why they would continue to develop an old mill.
Why deviate from the subject of the Fiesta ST rendering? Because X-Tomi Design probably spent a couple of hours working on it and now I'm going to tell all of you that it's not perfect. Obviously, the... [Read More]

We jump into a modified hot hatch to see what its like being a Time Attack driver at 2016's Snetterton season finale
We get a first taste of Time Attack in a super-hot Ford Fiesta ST to see what one of Britain's best-value series is like.
From afar, Time Attack might look like a glorified track day championship. Rather than racing, its drivers are sent out on track in sessions in order to record their fastest lap time. No race starts, no battles, it’s just you against the stopwatch.
Those who crave wheel-to-wheel competition — and can afford to fund the inevitable damage — may not find Time Attack as appealing as a race series. But for those who love driving on the absolute limit and extracting everything from themselves and their car on every corner, Time Attack might just be the perfect fit.
To find out what it’s like to be a Time Attack driver, this Autocar staffer headed to Snetterton for the final round of the year and strapped himself into a Project Carsbranded Ford Fiesta ST, prepared by intercooler specialist Airtec. With extensive engine and suspension mods, including an uprated turbo that boosts power to 345bhp and a very pointy (read: oversteery) chassis set-up, it’s a serious piece of kit.
The Time Attack championship visits six tracks, including Brands Hatch, Oulton Park and Snetterton, and generally takes place between April and September. Our entry is at Snetterton, on the two-mile-long 200 circuit. This year’s series has more than 50 entries per race, split into eight classes that range from Pocket Rocket, in which the smallestcapacity cars run, to Pro Extreme, where modifications are unlimited.
