Rally - Focus Gone
Quintin Milne appeared at the pre-Speyside test and VIP day with a 'new' car. "I've sold the Focus," he said, "it wasn't for me. I couldn't relax and drive it as hard as I wanted to because I kept thinking about the price of parts. Fabulous car, but not for the faint hearted. Within an hour of advertising it, it was sold. So I bought this. It's a MkII with a John Reid 2 litre engine, Tractive gearbox and wide track rear axle. It's not as good as my own MkII which I sold, but if I break anything tomorrow, I won't worry about it. I really like the stages up here and they suit the MkII, so I bought this in Ireland - yesterday!"
