You should toast him. Take him down some twisty roads (private runway of course) and let the clio show him what its made of. Escorts are heavy. I used to have a 1.6 scirocco and my friend used to have a 1.6 escort 16v and i always used to toast him! easy money mate.
Also, do all the pre-race checks: oil level, tyre pressures, remove spare wheel and fill with only a little optimax. If youre really worried, empty your windscreen washer bottle to gain those vital split seconds!
sat in the passenger seat on a test drive of a RS2000, felt crap, when accellerating was waiting for it to start pulling but it never did.
guy at the garage reconed they need overhauling every 50k due to blocked valves.
i recon you will win.
Bloody hell i used to beat one on regular occasions in my Heavily modded 1.4. Everytime the guy saw me he would try it on again and everytime he would loose. Since i got my Williams though he wont come near me Ha Ha Ha.
