The shootout ? NEWS

As most know Mid-Ohio left everyone hanging with 13 days before we were to be there saying the track would not be ready and was called off

Now there is a new date 4 - 21,22,23 - 06

Now some of the Co that were going to come are backing out "wooses" saying they cannot make the new dates BS so now from what Ron has said only 2 or 3 shops are going to make it , These will be the shops that are true Focus minded shops still willing to do what ever it takes to make it work

No one has spent more time or money on this than Focus-Power has to be there with what we think is THE FASTEST FOCUS

I didnt like the rules from the start and stated my dislikes worked around them and was going anyway now the rest of you gather up your slow a$$ crap and drag your butts out here

Its when things like this happen and who steps up to the challange that seperates the men from the boys , the fast from the wanabees

Tom

I think quite a few people became disenfranchised with the whole thing with the date switch and being that close, had other plans already set for that weekend. I know I personally set vacation for that week, hence me being out.

Crap happens and things change sometimes. Most work places let you change vacation dates if you explain what happen

As for P-51 now your fussing over 50 to 70.00 more $ and having to move up in class now you know how i felt about the old rules , just show up ill let you follow me around the track

Larry you will be able to fall in some where at the NASA event and run , can you please call me today

Ron says FS and Marcy are out , they couldnt run with the big dogs anyway !

Well... I'm "wussing out" of the Shoot out..... BUT I'm gonna be packing some heat for Beaver Run.

Plus I dont want to spend 2-2.5 days in driving classes and still have the chance of not getting to do the TT.

Well this conflicts with the BIG G2G we've had planned for months in Columbus, OH. This upsets the people that were going to attend both. I understand where you're comming from Tom and understand you're frustrated (to say it lightly) and i know a few of us are upset that were planning on going to this big meet down in Columbus too. So now we might loose a few people like 03OrangeSVT that i knew was planning on showing up too. As far as i know, he was also planning on having a hole bunch of people Camping out on his friends land the night before the meet. This just puts a BIG Wrench into things.

I for one would vouche for having this thing at a later date. Just because, it takes people awhile to get plans in order and make arragement among other things. This is a HUGE EVENT that a lot of Focus Fanatics are wanting to attend and see what exactly their Focus has the potential to do.

Why you wont get to run the TT at beaver run either so why not come over and hang out and run in what ever class they put you in it will still be track time and on a track where you can stretch you legs not on a "built for go-kart" track
