I use Motul 5.1 and I recommend it. It has a really high boiling point and woks with Dot 3/4 and ABS. I be it at the local motocross shop.

Do you know where you'd be going or what group you might run with?
In Virginia you have Summit Point and VIR very close.
I like NASA, but there are many groups that run at both tracks.

I'm familiar with VIR and it's an easy 2 hour drive for me. I've looked at the different groups there, and it looks like NASA is probably the best fit. BMWCCA and PCA have MUCH faster cars on hand. Chin looks mostly exotic - don't know about any others.

One other group to consider is SCMC (SVT Cobra Mustang Club). I know it sounds like mostly Cobras and GT500s, but they run (at least for the last two years) in conjunction with SVTOA. They have a nice mix of cars, mostly Fords, and any Focus would feel right at home.

But they are finished for this year at VIR, probably the next one would be next Memorial Day weekend.

SCMC is running Atlanta Motorsport Park in a few weeks. I'll be running VIR on Friday with Rezoom and on to Dawsonville for AMP Saturday and Sunday.
