Took my Focus to Streets of Willow

I drove my Focus out to Willow Springs, Streets of Willow July 8th. We managed to finish 10th out of 22 cars in the beginners division.

Nice pictures. What are your thoughts on the H&R coilovers now that you have taken them to the track?

Thanks, I agree, the 2012 Focus looks good on the track! My best time was 1:41.608, going counter clockwise.

This is the second Focus I've had the H&R coilovers installed on, and I love em. The car is so stable on the track. FSWerks in Anaheim installed these, and Vik didn't drop them much at all. They still could drop much further. FSWerks seems to have about the lowest price going for the 51660 H&R's.

To be fair to the car, I'm positive a decent driver could shave AT LEAST 5 seconds off my lap times! In spite of myself, I continually drove it into the corners to hard and pushed the front end.

Thanks, the orange block on the grill is a transponder, tie wrapped on to record lap times.

Thanks man, this is the third track event I've gone to. Once to Buttonwillow Raceway, once to Willow Springs, Streets of Willow , and once to Willow Springs, Horse-thief Mile.

The organization that has the events is, extreme speed track events.
