I hear industry insiders saying that auto journalists are some of the worst drivers. This guy must be the quintessential example of what they're talking about. no wonder he's the first guy to get a video up (and, apparently, break the embargo)...because on the road and on the track, he's clearly a pathetic driver. how is he an auto journalist?

Eeeesh that second video was tough to watch. Slashgear??? Jeebus BMO's got more car cred. If he/they broke embargo- hope enjoyed the ride because they won't be invited to Ford events for awhile...

Wonder who determined the apex cones around the track, Pobst? A couple were interesting and match a theory I've had.

I wish I could do a solid Harry Carry voice...and be unemotional about cars...then, I could take that guy's job.

What I liked about the second video was the right hand drive Mustang!! For some reason they flipped the video in the upper right. Nice Technique?? :eek: ??? ::)

My impressions after yesterday :
Quick impressions based on my experience yesterday:
- tons of grip
- big fat power curve that just pulls for days. Think boss engine on "11"
- Brakes. This is how it should always be. Great pedal feel, confidence inspiring world class braking.
- did I mention the brakes?
- great exhaust note

This car is just a great package.

R model guys? Stop worrying about the wheels, Ford has really thought this one through. Get an extra set of oem track wheels and tires and soak in the experience. The play book has changed; swapping out sway bars and wheels is going to take a 180 degree approach vs the boss......

Great to meet a couple of BMO guys in person

I heard the magnetic white striped car blew the motor......
