At last Julian and I had a run at full boost in his outrageous Kaliber Ford RS500 touring car. Docile at low throttle, it turns into a raging beast as the boost hits maximum. The wheels light up, the engine roars and we were catapulted down the straights even out accelerating some of the prototypes on track!! Weighing in at 1100 kg the engine pushes out 576bhp at full boost and revs to 7,800. Running on skinny tyres, wheel spin and opposite lock are constant partners so looking after the rubber will be a challenge.
