Ford Focus Global Test Drive Leaves the Starting Line

Hi, my name is Jenna Ezarik, and I was brought on board by Ford to the Focus Global Test Drive event in Madrid, Spain, as a special insider correspondent.

Day one of the Ford Focus Global Test Drive in Madrid was a huge success. More than 20 bloggers from all over the world got a sneak peek at the new Ford Focus and had the opportunity to test it out on closed courses at INTA, Spain’s National Institute for Aerospace Technology.

We had the opportunity to drive the 2012 Focus on the INTA track and were faced with various drills that simulated specific road and weather conditions. Each drill demonstrated the strengths and improvements of the new safety features of the Focus. We were even given the opportunity to drive on the test track reaching top speeds up to 100 mph!

So what was my favorite part of today? That would have to be meeting professional drivers Justin Bell and Tanner Foust and getting a behind-the-scenes look at a full racing experience in the new Focus.

I’m looking forward to more fun Ford festivities, and I can’t wait to see what day two has in store.

Watch for more updates on the Focus Global Test drive, and visit the Ford Focus Facebook page for more information.
