I have to complete 2 SCCA races "safely" to have the novice permit converted to a full regional license, so that takes all priority for this year.
I do have great fun with EMRA and NASA, as they do put on excellent events also, but since I'm a homeowner, the importance of the liability insurance provided through the SCCA is very important to me.
If NASA was running spec focus events in the NE region, I might have committed to that series, but that option is not currently on the table.
If all goes well, I'll probably be looking to sell my focus in the spring of 2011, and move on to a RWD platform, possibly an RX7, or BMW E36, or something else along those lines without breaking the bank.
Before I turn 50 I want to be running an open wheel car or one of those sports racers with a 'busa powertrain, so I've got about 5 1/2 years to figure out how to get there.
