Warley, Essex - Test-track trials: In the fourth of a series of videos from Ford that tells the story of how the new all-wheel drive Focus RS was developed, development driver Ken Block takes us to Ford's top-secret test facility at Lommel in Belgium to indulge in some hooning on Track 7. The new RS, due in South Africa during the first half of 2016, has a specially uprated version of Ford's new 2.3-litre EcoBoost engine that's rated at 258kW driving all four wheels, taking it from 0-100km/h in 4.7 seconds - and this is the story of 'how they did it'.
