I did my first autocross about 19 years ago. Back then I had a 1998 Nissan 240SX SE. I have had the itch to get back in to the sport again, so I dedcided it was time to see what a bone stock Ford Focus SE (5-speed and 4-wheel discs) would do. I ran in the Novice class with 500 treadwear all season tires and managed to get a faster time than a 2013 Subaru WRX STI that was also running in the Novice class. Between my first and third runs I managed to shave off just over 3 seconds. The instructor that rode with me said I need to move straight to the HS class and register as a Rookie. Next event is on May 5th....
