We were talking about this last night at home and felt the same - how can you compare a car costing £12995 with one costing £19995, £7000 more expensive! It really annoys me - and like said above, it would have been nice to at least get a time comparison.
If you add £7000 of mods to the cup it will sure as hell massacre the focus, or if you choose to compare the Focus with a car such as an Evo (not much more than £7k more expensive) then it will get its arse caned too, they are simply not valid comparisons.
I taped the program to see what they said about the Clio Cup as i am picking mine up this Saturday.
Takes the piss when Tiff said that it did not come with anything like ABS etc, but thats the point of the car. Then he said that the Civic is a real car as it is a non turbo, then he says how good the Focus turbo engine is, in the same sentance
Watching all the car prorams overthe weekend all i have sean is that Focus RS.
i like the way Tiff dismissed the Cup on the grounds of not having ABS, then proceeded to thrash the other cars round a racetrack. I can count the number of race cars with ABS on the fingers of one foot.
