Q&A with Ryan

What’s been your favourite car to drive, and why?

“My favourite car to drive would be my previous 420bhp Mk2 Ford Focus RS… that thing was an animal.”

What’s your favourite track to go on with your car?

“I’ve yet to go out on to a track but it’s something I’m itching to do.”

What would be your dream car?

“Without a doubt it would be a Ford Escort RS Cosworth! That ‘whaletail’ and the front end is just so beautiful.”

Do you use any garages to perform the work on your car?

“I recently had security measures fitted to my car at ‘Matt Lewis Motorsport’. I’m currently in talks with them about forging the engine and going for a big turbo.”

What have you learnt about modifying a car?

“Things will always go wrong and everything will cost more than you think (ha ha). It’s best to do your research first.”

What advice would you give to someone who wants to modify a car for the first time?

“Pick a path… do you want ‘show’? Or do you want ‘go’? Try to focus on either one rather than bouncing between the two. I’d always recommend going to a reputable garage to carry out the work on your car.”

What’s your favourite type of Motorsport and why?

“My favourite motorsport would be F1. I was brought up around F1. From a young age I was looking up to world class drivers. This is what really got me into cars in the first place.”
