Help!!

Can someone please answer some questions of mine please I posted these questions a ways back but no one ever answered them for me. Do you have to pre register your car to be in the show or is it walk in entry. also is there a pre payment you need to register or is it free to enter im assuming not, no problem, but if so whats the entry fee and when is it due by? if the show starts from the 26 to the 27 do we need to be there a certain day ahead of time to register and set up lets say like the 25th? just I need details Iv never been there, NOOB. lol. I bought a 2013 SE focus and im in the process of a project build so I need details so I can finish It in time for the show because it will be my first FocusFest and I want it to come out on top! please someone get back to me with an answer! Thanks so much

Hey dude, well if its anything like last year, you wont have to pre-register..

On Friday we did a meet and greet at the hotel and hung out in the parking lots and played some games and etc... Some people went to the track to test and tune and register..

On saturday we all got together at 6:30am.. and did a huge cruise to the track... then we registered and paid there... there were issues with payments and prices because they did not expect 150+ foci to show up..

One big thing you got to know ahead of time is if you are going to race or just show... there was a price difference..

IIRC it was like 40 bucks for both race and show.. sorry i dont remember since all the price discrepancies..

Once you register on saturday for the sunday event you dont have to do anything.. they give you a window tag and you just drive on thru..

NOW.. this is my experience based off last year.. things could change..

but dont worry.. there are alot of us there that can help you and whatnot..


the only thing in reality you can pre pay for is the goodie bag.. so you can just pick up at the tent.. and not worry about them running out..


once again.. this is based off what happened last year....


just keep an eye out on these threads as they are pretty good on updating them!

hope to see ya there!

^That's pretty spot on.

We will set up a "pre-reg" for FocusFest, but it's more just to get a head count so we know what we need to setup for the event. We will most likely do goodie bags again that you can purchase on here (once it's setup) that will include some different things for our event and sponsor items (stickers, keychains. . . depends what we get).

The show will have fees that are paid at the gate. i'm not sure on their schedule yet, but they might have a test and tune friday night. main event is saturday and roundup events sunday. Our events will be friday night for a meet and greet at the hotel. Show saturday with drag, autocross, judging, audio. . . Cruise and awards will be saturday night. sunday you can either head back to the track or most just head home then.

Last year there were plenty of food and product vendors at the show saturday (not as many sunday) that you can buy things from if you want.

We'll def post up more details as they become available. If you forget everything else though just remember to be prepared to be outside all day in potentially ridiculously hot weather. bring a chair, sunscreen, shade; whatever you would need to be there and stay safe.

Have we decided on a hotel yet? I'm actually going to try to have things planned out ahead of time this year unlike last year.

The dates they have listed is a friday and a saturday, where last year it was a saturday and sunday. Is that a misprint, or are they moving it up a day?
