Ford Focus ST vs Jaguar XFR stunt test
Owen Mildenhall turns his hand to stunt driving, as we help recreate a car chase from The Sweeney with a Ford Focus ST and Jaguar XFR
Things don’t always go to plan. But if the cameras are rolling, you might just end up with a better video than the one you were expecting. And that’s what happened when we were asked to take part in a car chase stunt featuring the new Ford Focus ST from The Sweeney.
It was always going to be tough ask: just one-and-a-half hours to practice a stunt sequence on a test track before doing it live on Goodwood Hill. But the challenge of pretending to be a movie star was too much for our resident racing river Owen Mildenhall to resist, so he gave it a crack. We hope you enjoy the results.
