It should have been directed to the first post in this thread.

Basically, we want to see something like this, no discussion:

So tell us a bit about your car, what class and region you're running in and how your season is going.
Feel free to come back to your post throughout the year and give us some updates.

I'll start this off...
Car: 03 Focus SVT
Mods: See sig.
Class: STS
Region: SCCA #7 Chicago

My first event was missed due to my oldest son putting the Focus into a ditch 2 days before.
The car has been fixed and a few suspension pieces have been upgraded.
Event #2 is this Sunday and will be my first time out with the Focus.
I've been running a Mustang the last couple of seasons).

I'm planning on going to the Philly Wintercross event on the 18th @ NJMP, are you going to be there?
Sorry I missed this post, and I forget your name lol. I'm Tim by the way. I have not been following up on the thread, so sorry for being a month late. I did not make the NJMSP AutoX event. How did you do and did you go? Early morning weather in PA was bad. I would have had to leave an hour earlier the way the back roads were that morning.

I did make Feb 8th at Citizens Bank Park. Was an excellent track.

I plan on making the next to winter series events as well.
