This is a reverse story of David vs Goliath. Goliath actually get's to hammer lil David, if he is driving around a Volvo 850 T5-R around the ring! The guy in the Volvo gives a very good chase and closes the gap during the start off point, where he had to manuever through cones and traffic. He closes the gap when he approaches the famous "Carousel" around the Nurburging Nordschleife. I had the same moments when some guy in a red modded, twin exhaust Mitsubishi Lancer GT decides to chase me around the NKVE all the way to the Duta Interchange toll, towards the DUKE highway. Proof that, it all boils down to how Goliath could deflect your sword, if he could read your mind! So if you see a Volvo on the streets, do not overlook his capabilities, else you'd be bonkered by Goliath flat!

dat focus let the 850 pass, looking at its acceleration outta the corners, d 850 shudnt be able to pass pun. i still prefer the 850R nonetheless

well, basically, u could see there was some gap between the ford focus and the volvo. u could see him closing the gap, when the focus saw the car that was that far all the while, the focus decides to pick up his pace. but yes, the volvo is fast on the straight line, while the focus was a fast corner carver. remember in the first few parts of the ring, theres more straight lines than slow corners
