Formula Ford EcoBoost: A racing car for the road!

Chris Harris drives the Formula Ford EcoBoost

Imagine this, you’re about to tackle the Nürburgring in a car powered by a 1.0 litre three cylinder engine. Hardly seems worth getting worried about. How fast can it be? In the hands of Nick Tandy last year it lapped the Ring in 7 minutes 22 seconds.

That was with 200hp on tap. After the break you can watch Chris Harris tweet, fart and whistle his way around the Nordschleife with 170hp at his disposal.
