I just wanted to share my joy with the forum.
I have just passed my SCCA Race School over this weekend, and I am the proud owner of an SCCA Club Racing novice permit.
Here's a video of my 5 lap sprint at the end of the class.
I owe all of this to my friend Dave, he got me started into modding the Focus 2 years ago. First just autocrossing etc, then a few track days, now I'm going racing.
It was his idea to get me through race school in his car early in the year.
Now I can relax and sort out the Focus and get my first 2 races under my belt during the year so I can get a proper regional license.
