I do run with MAC, although it's been very limited for a few years thanks to marriage and house purchasing. When I ran more it was in a black mk4 gti. I should be back to running more regularly this year.
I should have the Fiesta at one of the ValleyFair events. I may be co-driving my wife's SMF Del Slo at the other. Sadly neither have proper tires right now, so I won't be that competitive. I won't make the TnT though. The "You've met your Waterloo" gravel road rallye is on the 17th and I'm not gonna be able to do both.
Actually, I should be taking my Fiesta to it's first motorsport event this weekend. The "Escape to Wisconsin" road rally. My normal driver won't be able to drive his Mazda2, so it looks like he gets to navigate for me instead. Pictures should be forthcoming.
A couple pics from the Escape to Wisconsin Rally. We were first in novice class, 4th overall out of 15. Not bad for my wife's first rally and my second. She drove, I navigated and tried to suppress my terror of letting my wife bomb through Wisconsin hill country in my new FiST. For those of you who may not know what a road rally is, you try to maintain a speed over challenging roads while navigating an unknown route. There is alot of nerdiness, but it's still entertaining and gets the competitive juices flowing.
Here is a picture from the VERY wet Novice school Auto-x
The two people that were students in it (both friends of mine) finished 2nd and 4th overall out of 58 drivers. One of them was in first when another friend in an evo finally put together a good run and won by .17
What kind of tires are you running? I was saving up for the 225/45 16 z2s but now they are sold out. Which leaves me with limited options. Actually I think it leaves just the skinnier RS3s in a 205/45 16, since none of the Rivals fit without rub.
Or maybe I should go crazy and squeeze the dark horse 235/40 17 federal RS-Rs on the stock wheels for 1 season...
