Ford Focus RS vs. Jet Pack

So who would win in a sprint race – a 300bhp Ford Focus RS or a man with a jet-pack strapped to his back?

That’s just the question that led to jet-pack pilot Eric Scott lining up against BTCC champ Gordon Sheddon on the start line at Knockhill.

If it’s not entirely clear from the video who won, the answer is … the jet pack. Not a bad feat against the hottest hatch of the moment, although it’s worth bearing in mind the jet-pack only has enough fuel for thirty seconds of flight.

Fortunately his family has learned to put up with this obsession and the internet has provided a channel for his ramblings.
