Here are some pics from Car and Driver magazine's Super Four Challenge. I won't tell you the outcome... you'll have to pick up the mag (probably the Nov. issue) or watch their TV show to find out the details.

Some of the faces:



Larry Webster (blue shirt) and Tony Swan (black shirt and sunglasses) from Car and Driver magazine



Front Row: FJ members, fastraxturbo and Matador
Second Row: Buscher Racing's driver, Dave Buscher and the infamous TonyD




Easy Street/PDX Tuning brought in the big guns. They enlisted former ChampCar driver Memo Gidley

I love how the Focus is so understated compared to the other cars. No bodykit, no ultra fancy wheels, no expensive paintjob.....just all go.

Hey Ron, can you at least tell us if the Focus did "respectable" in the event?

WOW!!!
That AEM Si is the one they kept inside of the Super Autobacs store in So Cal.

At first I was thinkin.. who is the world is going to be able to hang with that HKS EVO. Then I saw the Flyin Miata MX-5 which these guys are GOOD! But probably still a bit under rated. THEN you bring in the ForceFed Elise!! And I just dont see that thing losing! Then you have the race bred Statis Audi A4...

Man what a crop of cars!! I can't wait!

Oh yeah... and while somehow I missed getting a pic of him, HKS enlisted the skills of D1 ace Nob Taniguchi to drive their car!


Not my pic, just for reference:

Congrats for the great scoop!



I fear for those that competed against Jon's car. (fastraxturbo).


Can you tell us which car he was representing? HKS?

cool pix but the focus in compairson to the other cars definitely does not have a cool look factor to it. hope it performs really well to make up for the non attention grabbing look haha.

haha, I was going to say that the Focus actually looks better than most of them, other than the Miata and the Elise.
Looking forward to hearing about the results (and seeing more pictures).
