Autocross - 2 October 2005 - RIT (56k could be a bit painful)

Had a really nice time today. LOTS of cars. I managed to place 13th in novice (of course, they gave out trophies up through 12th!).

MyBlackST scored 2nd place! Go Dave!

Here are some pics (I'm # 440, Dave is # 65)







Full album here (small one), including other Focuses

WOW...you got these up fast! The event was really fun and there were 6 focuses there...Todd and I were the only sedans.. Had to show them what we can do... .

Todd did do really well for his 2nd event ever...this course was really big and fast.

Those are some really good pics. They show how much we are loading the front suspension into the turn....And I have to say, the front is WAY down...

Todd, too bad there were no fun runs..I could have taken the video camera out of the car and taped a run or two.

Mine is as stock as the day it rolled off the assembly line.. Dave has a DIY CAI on his.

Next year I have a feeling we'll both end up in STS (I'm going to stay Novice for another year I think as well)

Technicaly all I did was replace my air filter, but other than that..all stock. There was no other place for a focus ST other than HS this season..I think they may put the ST in GS next year though, because of the 2.3 non-pzev engine and the SVT struts/shocks. I would like to move to STS for next year though. We will deffinetly need different tires to replace the ice skates we have now.
