I wish I could stay in GS, but I don't want to sacrifice the short-throw for it. I think I could do a lot of proving for the SVT Focus in my region (maybe being too overly confident because I'm still new) with better tires and such against some of the good drivers out there. Right now, I can run with some of the guys on R-comps and Summer tires on my all-seasons, so that suggests I'm driving well and/or they're not pushing as hard. However, I cannot even begin to touch one member in his Cooper S in the region adjacent to mine - partially due to tires and I'm going to take the fall and say mostly due to lack of driving skill still. I would like to make this "hobby" into something more serious, but time and money do not permit my dedication to do so. The most important thing I get out of this is good clean ol' fun with great competition. I guess when I run STS, I'll have even better competition.
