Watch Eight Fast Fords Do Battle In A Staggered One-Lap Race

From the F-150 Raptor to the race-ready GT, eight fast Fords take to the track in a staggered-start race over one lap of a sun-baked Spanish circuit

Do you ever wonder what would happen if you took eight fast Fords to a race track, staggered their start times to let the slower cars start sooner, and then had a race? No, nor us, but Ford has gone and done it anyway.

Eight models from the company’s meaty portfolio of quick cars went to the Motorland circuit near Barcelona, from the F-150 Raptor to the GT racer, for a one-lap, 3.3-mile time trial between some very different machines, all with pro drivers at the wheel.

The Raptor, as the slowest track car of the eight, left the start line 11 seconds before the next car, the outgoing 2017 Fiesta ST. Two seconds after that the new Fiesta ST gets going, then it’s another five seconds before a Focus RS sets off, three more seconds to the Mustang GT, and then the bigger gaps arrive.

Between the Mustang GT and a GT350R there’s 10 seconds, then a further seven seconds’ wait until a road-going GT hits the gas. Finally, a 10-second gap leaves the GT race car alone on the ‘grid’, until, 48 seconds after the Raptor started, it launches its pursuit.

We won’t tell you the finishing order, or which two cars nearly make contact on the final corner, so place your bets and enjoy.



Did the Mustangs touch or did they just miss eachother…?

Since they’ve hit basically everyone else on the planet, they’ve turn their attention to their own relatives

I bet Ford was inspired by GT4

Oh my god, that race was SO hard, I don’t think I ever got within a minute of winning… That and the 24 hour endurance races stopped me from getting 100%

This is the type of stuff manufacturers should advertise, not some guy making rhymes or saying a car is faster or better with all the awards and building car elevators just for an ad (looking at you chevy), but rather the true performance aspect of each one or the capabilities.

The problem with that is that the other commercials bring in more money because that’s what the general population wants.

As a proud Focus ST owner I am sad they included 2 Fiesta ST’s but no Focus ST…
