FORD FOCUS RS IS SCOTS' FAVOURITE

Nov 16,2009 Elton

Ford Focus RS has won the "sporting" category at the 12th annual Association of Scottish Motoring Writers (ASMW) Awards in St Andrew's, Scotland.

A jury of 17 Scottish automotive journalists chose the Ford Focus RS against a short list of eight contenders that included the Audi R8 V10, Nissan 370Z, and Volkswagen Golf GTi.

President of the ASMW, Bill Caven, presented the award and commented: "Ford has a great history with the Scottish Car of the Year awards and once again is a winner with their Focus RS.  Its combination of power, poise and  affordability makes it a worthy class winner."

He added: "The Ford Focus was the winner at the inaugural awards in 1998 and  Ford has had winners almost every year, proving that Ford cars deliver what the Scottish market demands."

On receiving the award, Ian Slater, Vice-President Communications and Public Affairs for Ford of Europe, said:  "This is great news for the Focus RS and testament to the skill and enthusiasm of our engineers.  In such a competitive environment it's great to see performance and value recognised in this way."
