I know its a long shot, but do you think Ford MoCo would consider making this an option for RS owners? I sure would love taking the RS around Europe *cough*Nurburgring*cough*

I know BMW, Porsche offer it, so I figure its a long shot. But I think it would be pretty incredible to drive this thing on the roads it was truly designed for. I think they actually mentioned this specifically about the FoRS on the most recent The Smoking Tire Podcast.

Asked. Not going to happen. Ford hasn't got the infrastructure for it.
I doubt that's the reason but I agree that it's not going to happen. They have dealers and a delivery system in place so the infrastructure is there, all they would need is to set up the procedures.

Direct quote from chief of marketing. They don't have the infrastructure as in they are not set up to do a European delivery program akin to what Volvo and BMW do

I had a blast in my base focus 1.0 ecoboost rental car around europe in may. 2500 miles and 6 countries. It's actually what turned me onto the focus platform. I imagine a euro delivery with a focus rs would be that much better.

Is that at the Caracciola Karussell ("Carousel") at the Nürburgring?

You can purchase a sticker everywhere around the track. I prefer " zugang nordschleife" or " brünnchen"
Unfortunately nordschleife doesn't offer such a DVD. But you can drive in a ring taxi if you want to

Is this what you did....Opening times Nordschleife*- Nürburgring

Did you get the sticker of the track for your vehicle? I cannot remember if it is there or at Spa where you can purchase a DVD of your on track fun. Those two tracks are on my "bucket list".
Yes, that's what I did. Basically drive up in whatever, buy a card and load it with laps and then just drive up to the gate and off you go. I bought a sticker. Haven't stuck it yet.
