This past weekend the Blue Ridge Region SCCA had a Rookie School and auto-x. School was Sat and the 'cross was Sunday. I had a blast. I've auto-xed twice before, but not since 2003ish. Since I just picked up a focus SVT 3 weeks ago, I decided to take the school. This was a brilliant decision, if I say so myself. I was able to learn the car a bit before the actual event. And I learned that the tires that were on it when I bought it need to go away. Far away. Actually, since I'd gotten them to slide on the street without even pushing the car hard, I already knew that. But I have a better understanding now of why this car is so loved. The plan as of right now is to just drive the car as is, and keep running in G-stock. At least the rest of this season. Of course, after seeing the price on Massive, I just had to pick up the Saleen suspension kit. It's just sitting there in the box waiting for me.
Enough talk. Pictures, and short vid.

And I got a surprise. Another SVT showed up.
Washed up a bit and home again.
W/ my new (to me) stock 16" focus wheels, soon to be sporting winter grippage. Currently sporting the ever stylish worn to the cords Victoracers.
And a vid...
