Take no offence to this please, but
It doesn't seem like there is much promotion going on for this. the forum is buried down here where only a small group of the forum members look regularly.
Maybe it should be placed up top like the JF2 forum was then maybe it will catch the attention of the people that don't care to race but want to come with their car and meet everyone and support our beloved little car.
There just isn't a buzz about it like there was for JF 2 or FOTB.
I know its not meant to be as big but still. Down here I am certain its not getting much attention.
Obviously I don't know what all is going into it or if there are outside promotions, but this is just my opinion as an outsider. I will be at the event FJ presence or not but I would LOVE to see a big focus presence as well!
The number of planned activities has been scaled back. Capaldi Racing was going to be spending a lot of money on this event and I don't think it's fair for them to do so if only 20 cars are going to show up.
However, there still is going to be all the great on-track action and several hardcore Focus enthusiasts in attendance.
So, I hope that everyone that is within driving distance will still show up because it's going to be a great time to meet other Focus enthusiasts from the area and see some great on track Focus action!
Just because there won't be a car show, etc. doesn't mean it's not going to be a good time. And anyway, when more than a couple of Focus enthusiasts get together you know it's going to be a party! arty:
Leo, I have been meaning to call and follow up with you, but haven't yet.
I'm willing to help out where ever I can, unfortunately, I won't be able to show up until probably 3-3:30 both afternoons (and later on Friday, if we're doing anything), which will pretty much make me worthless for organizing a car show or leading parade laps.
I'll put my other Forza in the car and give ride-a-longs in an almost race car. I also have EMS strobe lights and previous Pace Car Experience, if it doesn't conflict with lunch or instructing I'll lead or let someone else drive my car and lead the Parade Laps.
