I Took My Dad to a Racetrack for Father’s Day, and Here’s What Happened

In a days heading adult to Father’s Day, there’s roughly always that insane hasten to figure out what to get dad. Such is a box for me every. Darn. Year. Here’s a thing: My father isn’t accurately one for “stuff.” He’s a starved reader, though give him a square of wardrobe or a watch and it won’t ever see a light of day. Seriously. we also didn’t wish to review to removing him nonetheless another book, saying as he most owns a entirety of a True Crime and WWII sections during Indigo.

To make matters even some-more difficult, we also had a new father in mind: My brother, a newly-minted father to an darling (and impossibly chunky) 1-month old. So, we set off to find gifts for both my father and bro, anticipating that it wouldn’t come down to holding them out for brunch. Boooooring.

The latter, partial of Ford’s opening line, isn’t your normal Focus hatchback: it facilities all-wheel drive, that keeps a automobile glued to a track, and an combined turbo-charger that produces a whopping 350 horsepower. According to my brother, a Focus RS had “wicked handling,” definition a some-more assertive we drove, a improved a automobile performed.
