There have been two Focus Challenge/Redline Track Events on the east coast this year. Results/Times for neither event are posted on the Focus Challenge website or the Redline Track events website:dunno: :what:
Yes, the 2005 event was posted very nicely and promptly. But the 2006 events have not been. I know we didn't have as many cars this year for various reasons. But some of the FJ members who did run also ran in the Redline Time attack event and did very well. I just want to see their efforts recognized.
I'll speak with Chris about getting the results up and posted. One thing we will need is everyone's handicap that participated in the Focus Challenge at Summit Point. I think we only had 3 cars, so it wont take long to figure out the final results.
Hopefully next year we'll see more cars compete in the events out on the East Coast.
Well, as one of the 3 participants, I've got to say (respectfully): too bad. If you promote the event, support it. Plain and simple. Sorry to all involved, but I can say in all honesty that I did more to promote the event on this board than the organizers.
Sorry for the negative tone, but promoters have a greater responsibility to their events than the participants. We (participants) are buying your (promoters) products.
You are right. Not taking care of an event even with only 3 people is not at all cool.
I dont think that is the spirit of the Focus Challenge and I'm sure the guys who are implying that 3 cars isn't enough to care about, dont really mean it that way.
The real issue here is that the Focus Challenge is in transition. I've made updates to the website to make it more user friendly and a bit more useful for those who do use it for now in hopes of keeping the few drivers we do have while this transition completes.
Everyone who has stated that the east coast events havent been treated in the same manner as the west coast events are correct. And I apologize for not being more available to help.
Ya I sure didnt mean an offense...its was more I sensed that there was the feeling Redline couldnt handle it. They can, just didnt post it. We all agree that that has to happen.
I know what you saying about promotion. You should have seen what I had to do to get SVTOA to accept the TT idea. It was a first for the club. Nevermind that its 70% Mustangs . Working internally at Ford (as Ted and some others can attest) is challenging because of the size and current enviornment.
I'm a Mum from Brisbane (Queensland Australia), and I've been fortunate enough to be one of 12 people Australia wide, test driving and reviewing the 2012 Ford Focus Titanium 2.0L TDCi Turbo Diesel for 6 weeks.
The catch is, only the person with the MOST votes by 5pm on the 12th of August 2011...
I wonder if there is any interest in attempting to revive the Focus Challenge in 2011, especially once the 2012's start hitting dealers in mass.
We can make it relatively low key.. make it an All Ford thing... or only a Focus thing.
I'd love to get my Focus back out on...
Well i know the FC has fizzled out. But i figured this would be the place to post Redline's new rulebook / schedule for 2010
And rules here:
A great day of racing out in the desert of Willow Springs, as the 2008 Focus Challenge Championship concluded with the fourth round. Everything went perfect as the temperatures were just right, the winds were mostly calm, and the track was clear!
After a few close practice sessions this...
