Thanks! Well I raced in my first autocross event today. It was a blast! I took 3rd out of 5 in the H Stock class. It was a great experience, and I did fairly well for my first time ever racing. The focus with my brothers Subaru in the background. He took second in the packed Street Modified class.


I thought this was a pretty cool photo. My brother took it while we were right lane cruising on the way to the track: My oldest brother's Corvair in front ( He took 3rd in the vintage class), my older brother took the picture, and there I am the youngest in the rear view mirror. What a great way to have some brotherly bonding time.


Here is me at the starting line. I'll have some video and more pictures that my sister-in-law took eventually. I didn't bring my nice camera to take some more artistic shots, but maybe I will go out and cruise some back roads next weekend and get some good photos.


I saw one other Focus there, a red 2002 SVT, also in the HS class. He had to leave so he ran in the heat before me. I talked to him for a while, but I don't remember his name, maybe he is on here.

I really want to paint my headlight housings black now, they will flow much better with the black wheels, so that along with a matching suede ebrake boot and painted mirror caps are the next things on my to do list. I guess I have kinda settled on a Black/Blue/Red color theme for my car.

Ohh, I forgot to add that I made it back home in one piece minus some rubber and brake dust :)

I've got a K&N CAI, Magnaflow cat back exhaust, Spax shocks and struts, and Megan Racing lowering springs. Autocross is awesome. You should give it a try if you can find a local event.

Sounds like you have a good list of projects going. It was a lot of fun. I'm hooked. Even though I came in last place in my class, who cares. It was my first time ever racing and the other drivers and organizers were so nice and helpful. Anothe rdriver let me do a ride along with him before my first run, gave me pointers. Then he rode along with me to give me and gave me more pointers during my first run. Then another driver came and helped me out on my second run. Then I did my last two runs by myself. Everyone was helpful, and made things less stressful for newbie that had no idea what I was doing. I am hopefully going to do another autocross event in the next few weeks, and I might try out a TSD rally.

Hey guys, yesterday I picked up some SVT contour wheels with tires for $175. Will probably use them for winter wheels or autox.



Also, guess what I am finally doing today:

Haha, well i should have some more artistic pictures soon. But to hold you over here are some pics from autox. In the first pic notice that the Pontiac Fiero behind me really knows how to get low :)

Well, today I stopped on the way home from work to take some pictures of my newly painted mirror caps. I only had my phone and the lighting was really bad. Sometime I will get out and take some real photos, sometime...







Also, I really need to buff out my headlights...
