Kirchheim/Teck, Germany, November 23, 2017 – With the “Ford Go Faster” event series, Ford is offering action fans a first-class driving experience of a very special kind – with a starring role in their own action film. Participants in England and Spain were already given the opportunity to drive a Ford Focus RS equipped with seats from RECARO Automotive Seating and be part of a car chase with a Ford Mustang. Coached by professional stunt drivers, participants learned how to drift and how to use the handbrake for a skillful rotating maneuver to slide into a parking space. The finished scenes are part of the action movie trailer “Go Faster.”

“Seats from RECARO stand for quality, craftsmanship and purposeful design that gives the driver the best possible control over his vehicle and thus the best maximum driving experience. Stunt training simply puts the icing on the cake for the true aficionados,” says Martin C. Klein, vice president of RECARO Automotive Seating. “We take pride in giving the drivers the opportunity to feel the performance of our products under these challenging circumstances and at the same time the experience how important the perfect seat is for the control of such performance cars.”

From November 24 to December 3, 2017, participants in Le Bourget, France will be able to attend the event. Italy and Germany will follow in 2018. More information about the event series can be found at www.fordmedia.eu/project/ford-go-faster
