The New RS 2009 has been trialed and unconfirmed reports are saying 8:04 which will set it as the fastest Front wheel set up ever to go round the track - again unconfirmed to date...... but interesting

The Focus RS did a 8:34 according to Jost Capito. The 9:05 was the ST170.

yes but the reference claimed sportauto..they never made a Focus RS test..if it would have been in 2005 like the source claim it would be published in every sportauto car magazine.. there they always have the laptime list of the past 3 years for both Hockenheim shorttrack and Nordschleife

Fair enough Georg.... as it had a ref I added that one.

Further research seems to suggest that the 9:05 time was a claim made by Ford when the RS was released so I'll add it again without a ref. Remember not all lap times here have a reference.

delet the Ford Focus RS Nordschleife laptime... in the source is sportauto named as tester.. sportauto never tested the Focus RS at the Nordschleife..
sportauto test only supertest cars at the Nordschleife..according to their online libary they never made a supertest with the Focus RS.. they only drove the RS at the Hockenheim shorttrack
