The Stig Races Focus ST Against Gran Turismo Counterpart at Goodwood

It's the battle of real vs. virtual.

The Goodwood Festival of Speed was the perfect setting for Ford to unveil its refreshed 2015 Focus ST. With its 2.0-liter turbo-four still delivering 252 hp and 270 lb-ft combined with a retuned suspension and electric power steering, the Focus ST is better than ever. To prove it, Ford employed the services of former Stig, Ben Collins, to pilot the updated hot-hatch up the hillclimb, while a gamer simultaneously set off in the virtual counterpart on Gran Turismo 6. The one-on-one race was pretty much neck-and-neck, with just a tenth-of-a-second separating the times.

Check out the video to see who won the battle of real vs. virtual.
