    No, the fabulous 5-cylinder 2.5 Turbo which is is the prime reason for having the MK2 ST.

    That's the Volvo engine isn't it? I wasn't sure if it was on the ST as well as the RS, now I recall they had the RS output 300Bhp as oppose to 250? Something like that?

    It is a fabulous one, they used it later for the C30 Polestar (PCP) which unfortunately never made it into production, shame, it sounded magnificent over there with 400 horsepower and 500~ Nm of torque.

    Correct, from Volvo. But it was called the ST225 as the standard ST had 225PS. But a simple remap brought the power to 270PS and 450Nm. This gives it pretty close to RS performance for (nowadays) less than half the price.

    Absolutely amazing, shame they're gonna kill the Focus by 2025, with all due respect to the Puma, I think it still would've made a great Rally1 car, or a last gen WRC car for that matter, again with all due respect to the Fiesta WRC.
    If in doubt, flat out!

    A Hyundai entertaining on a road section could lead to trouble ?

    I believe they closed the road from traffic and there’s marshalls controlling spectators

    The road wasn’t closed, but lots of police around trying to prevent gridlock. This was close to Kasarani.

    Unlike last year when the full road section afterwards was closed, we had a police convoy for every 6 cars or so.
    I think it worked pretty well, I have some videos I took with my phone but must admit I fell asleep for large parts!

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3NCUziUK5Wo When watching the video of Neuville getting stuck in the mud it seems that the main cause was that he was taking too much speed in the corner, got off camber and eventually got stuck. Whatever, I admire his all or nothing approach here since he had nothing to lose

    But I think Rovanperä getting stuck in sand and blocking the road last year was a lot more silly https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SOI4AOG7aaA

    And there is also this: KALLE ROVANPERÄ'S DRIFTING SKILLS CAME IN HANDY ON THE FINAL PAIR OF SATURDAY SAFARI STAGES ACCORDING TO HIS TEAM BOSS
