On its first run each day, the new Focus ST will compete in real time against the Focus ST featured in the Gran Turismo®6 game for PlayStation®3.   A designated gamer at the Ford stand will match skills against Ben Collins – formerly “The Stig” from Top Gear – with the action displayed on big screens throughout the festival. Visitors to the Ford stand also have the chance to record their own times on the Gran Turismo 6 simulators. Also starring at Goodwood will be the all-new Ford Mustang that makes its first U.K. appearance. A 5.0-litre V-8 Fastback will take part in the Supercar Class, with Ford Team RS vehicle dynamics specialist David Put at the wheel. Ford also will display a Mustang convertible.
