2015 SCCA Autocross H-Street #93 Campaign (2002 Focus SVT)

Hi,

I am planning on running the 2015 autocross season in SCCA H-Street class in my 2002 Focus SVT. I am a couple year member of this forum, and I am on my 4th SVT right now.

I come from a mild racing background (stock cars, road racing, and autocross). Looking to do autocross again next year full time. I live in Central North Carolina and am within 2 hours of some great events all year long against National Champions across the board.

This is one of my previous autocross cars I ran - 1999 Saab 9-3 Turbo:



I ran it in Street Mod, DSP and STX while I had it. Was heavily tuned at one point but was heavy and not a lot of great autocross related aftermarket support was available.

In April of this year, I purchased my 4th Ford Focus SVT. I have owned two 3-door SVT's and two 5-door SVT's. This one is a 2002 two-door SVT, no EAP package, and factory sunroof included. Had 140k miles on it when I bought it and almost completely stock. Only aftermarket part right now is a short ram CAI that will be replaced with a stock SVT airbox and drop in K&N very soon.



Since then I have replaced the following:
- rebuilt most of the upper end of the motor to stock specs, adjusting valves, etc
- timing belt, water pump, thermostat, radiator hoses, etc
- clutch slave cylinder
- new fan, and stock heat shield
- IRMC
- new starter and battery
- new front end links
- new stock focus svt struts

Right around 145k miles now, but getting very reliable and continuing to replace most worn OEM parts with new Motorcraft ones. I have a lot left to get it ready before the season starts in late February or early March.

I am going to use this forum as a way to record my progress, event results, get help with prep, etc. I will write a few posts this weeks discussing plans, mods, etc. Please subscribe for some great content and SVT autocross technical talk!

Thanks!
Jr.

All Ford Focus models except for the new Focus ST (Turbo) are classed in H-Street currently. The Focus ST (Turbo) is classed in G-Street and won the 2014 SCCA Solo Nationals in that class last week.

I plan on running re-valved Koni Yellows next year and brand new SVT springs. Just have not purchased them yet. [like]
If you don't mind, can you show me where you see the rules for any non-ST to run in HS? I'm interested
