Tommy: Thanks for the info, I might just take you up on that offer. I should be able to come by for a few hours at some point in the weekend. When would be the best day and time (I don't want to interfere).

Thanks a lot.

Euro: Thanks for the info, I posted this here because I am trying to get hooked up with auto-xers in the local area, and I wanted information about the local competition.

I will let you know when I get my Focus!

Euro: The shin-dig will start somewhere 'round 6. By then the autocrossing will be done. I don't drink Sam Adams, so bring as much as you can consume. [:p] I'll have a bunch of rum and some Citrona's or Bacardi O3's. [:D]

Ian: The autox this weekend is over at Lot B by Coor's Field. To get there, From I-25 North or South, take exit #212 20th Street (eastbound)
or Park Avenue exit 213 (eastbound). 1 Block east of Coors Field is Market Street.
Make a left (northeast) on Market Street. Stay on Market Street (which becomes
Walnut Street) until you get to 27th Street. Make another left on 27th Street and
enter "Lot B". This is the ONLY entrance you can use to the event.
Please respect the neighborhood, and keep the noise down when arriving and departing.

For more info check out www.rmsolo.org.

It's free to watch, you'll just have to sign a waiver. C'mon down and watch!! [:)]

As far as I can tell it costs about $35 for non-members of SCCA to race (members are $25). Unfortunately It looks like this weekend is a members only event for racing[:(], and joining the SCCA is $75 for a year. The next event is Aug 31st in C.Springs.

Check out rmsolo for more detail.

tommy can i do a ride along with u? thatd be awesome. do u have a nice garage? im tryin to think i have anything to install. we are doing a udp install on my buddies focus tonite. but i have a torque gun so its only going to take like 20 minutes.

tommy check back on the forum later tonight. we are trying to get a bunch of foci together for pictures and possibly another bbq on sunday, lol. the way im thinkin its gonna work is we could bbq, take pictures, then roll out to arapahoe crossings kinda early so we can get them all together. ill post more info later though. royal check back later tonite also!

Actually Chris, I don't have a garage!! [paranoid] I have a carport that everyone can use, and there's other spaces, but no garage. If the guys over on the 'Jet wanna install stuff, that's cool with me.

But no garage, sorry...[:(]

I'll give ride-alongs on all except for one run. That last run will be my run for time, and we usually get 3 or 4 runs. I just saw that there'll be 200 drivers, so we'll most likely only get 3 runs. I'll be glad to take 2 guys; and Euro and JonnyQ have spoken up first. If we get another run, I'll be glad to take RoyalZTS if you want. There's also gonna be another SVTF there, as well as another ZX3 that's modded running in STS class. The ZX3, (Scott) will be at the BBQ later and is a good guy, so I'm sure he'll give a couple of rides as well.

As far as Sunday's concerned, I don't get off of work until 10 pm; so the earliest I could make the A.C. deal would be 10:30. [:(] It'd be nice to get in some of the pix, but I'm sure I'll be too late. Maybe we can get some at Saturday's BBQ as well.

I'll check back later...[:)]

The proposed run order is up and both GS and STS, (where us Foci will be running) race the last heat. If you wanted to be there for the racing tomorrow, plan on showing up somewhere around 1 pm. Sunday, however, we're racing the second heat. That usually starts around 10:30/11:00.

I've never raced a Divisionals race, however, and if things get all weird the times might be off.

Sooooo, either give me a buzz at 303.808.3925 and let me know, or just show up.

See everyone tomorrow or Sunday...[:)]
