Whoa! It just struck me that we may be discouraging people from autocrossing their Focus. I just wanted to add that just because you won’t be winning a jacket at Nationals is no reason to not try autocross on a Regional level. It is the best way to hone your driving skills (many big time road racers started out in Solo II) and the Focus is a good car to learn in. Heck, some suspension tweaks and good tires and you could be quite competitive Regionally. As the Nike ads used to say: Just do it
. I guarantee you’ll have a blast.
