Blinded by Glare? Focus solves the problem
Technology that was first developed for fighter jets is helping to improve the driving experience for the new Focus – that offers our first Head-up display for Europe.

The display will make it easier for drivers to keep their eyes on the road as they monitor information including speed, navigation and road signs on a display that is projected to overlay the view ahead.

For some existing systems there can be a drawback – that for those wearing polarised sunglasses, which counteract glare, the display can be rendered almost invisible. Our Head-up display also emits the kind of light that polarised sunglasses are designed to eliminate from view. But a carefully tuned filter “bounces back” polarised light to the driver and effectively solves the problem.

“Wearing polarised glasses can make a massive difference to visibility for drivers affected by glare, such as when stretches of water, snow or even tarmac reflect sunlight. Our Head-up display also offers one of the brightest screens and has among the largest fields of view,” said Glen Goold, chief programme engineer for Focus.

Ford GT at Le Mans 24 Hours
Chip Ganassi Racing will be competing with four Ford GT's at the 2018 Le Mans 24 Hours race (16th-17th June), two representing the USA and two representing the UK





In previous World Endurance Championship races, the Ford Chip Ganassi team has been very successful in getting podium at many events, the burning question now with many new vehicles such as BMW and the new Aston Martin entering into this year's series, is 'will the Ford GT be competitive enough to take a win?'

How low do you go before refuelling?
How low do you go before refuelling?
Normally I refuel when its 1/4 tank, with my new Fiesta though its been lower than the 1/4 gauge on the dash, is it bad to wait til the warning light comes on to refuel?

And how many of you refuel to the top? Usually I put in enough to take it to 3/4 tank if doing a lot of driving. If not enough for 1/2 tank full.
