Richard Hammond’s Ford Focus RS – A Massive Hunt
The Grand Tour hosts chose three cars to drive and review in the latest episode of the Amazon show without knowing what was in store for them. Clarkson chose the Bentley Continental GT V8, May a Caterham 310R, and Hammond chose a Ford Focus RS.
When they formed a plan to travel to Madagascar to find hidden pirate treasure, they modified their cars to deal with what May describes as “the worst roads in the world”. Hammond chose to modify his cars with caterpillar tracks, and while this seems like a great idea, in the real world it was an accident waiting to happen.
The tracks didn’t survive, and in fact, the Focus was the first Grand Tour car to not finish a challenge.
