Ford is showcasing three tuned versions of its wild, performance-oriented Focus ST, and the TrackSTer is one of the first ones down the pike. Built by fifteen52 and partner, His Royal Hoon-ness, Ken Block, the TrackSTer is built as a weekend warrior capable of driving to the track, busting some hot laps, and rolling home. “Teaming up with fifteen52 for this project was an obvious choice for me. They’ve got a great understanding of what’s hot in the small car performance marketplace right now, both from the style perspective and from the performance end of things,” Block quipped. “With the TrackSTer, they’ve worked closely with both Ford Racing and Mountune to put together a potent package that blends on-road performance with on-track performance. I can’t wait to actually get this car out on a track and put it through the paces.”
fifteen52 has incorporated the best of the best in constructing the TrackSTer, and trips to the Ford Racing performance well have been numerous, to say the least. A partial list of incorporated parts that will soon be available to all Focus ST enthusiasts include a Ford Racing short-throw shifterand performance exhaust system. In addition to Ford Racing Performance Parts, components and partners from Ford Racing’s Focus
race programs globally have lent their expertise, including a full Mountune engine build (using forged rods and pistons), a Mountune performance intercooler, a Mountune upgraded ECU, a Quaife limited-slip differential, a Centerforce custom clutch kit, custom brakes from StopTech, and fender flares from the Chinese Touring Car Championship Focus.
