The Who's Who of Focus Autocrossers

I started this thread to find out more about the folks on this forum who are competing in autocross. I know we have everyone from beginners to a few class champions.

I thought it would be cool to see just how many autocrossers we have and follow everyone's progress through the 2006 season. 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).

Car: 2002 SVT Focus
Mods: Now very worn Falken Azenis RT-615s, K&N drop in filter
Class: G Stock
Region: Des Moines Valley Region

2004 - 2nd in Class
2005 - Class Champion
2006 - Current points leader
2007 - Worldwide Domination bid
2007.5 - Realize I still can't beat the Minis and move to a different class
Don't waste another minute waiting on parts, or anything else. Just get out there and start racing! You will suck at first, and you will be slower than many other cars, but the only thing you will regret is not starting earlier...

Car: 2003 Focus SVT
Mods: lighter OZ wheels on MXs, STS, VF Mount, and H&R 24mm Rear Sway bar
Class: STS
Region: Oklahoma City SCCA, North East Oklahoma SCCA, and PCA

I ran G stock last year for three events I believe. I moved into STS once the 2006 season started. So far I am in first place for season points, but I'm only there due to consistent attendance. I'm slowly trying to catch the first place driver. I've dropped the gap from about 2-3 seconds down to 1.5-2 seconds. I hope to take first out of consistency, but more importantly, I would like the honor of eventually beating the first place STS driver out of skill for one event (that would make me happier than getting first for the season).
