This video was taken as part of a cource on high performance driving at Race City Speedway in Calgary. It isn't perfect racing driving, and there are plenty of mistakes I would love to try and fix, but it was my first time doing autocross in my own car. Enjoyed the hell out of it.
Just a note, while I do pass a few BMWs and a Subaru Impreza WRX, this is out of standard courtesy on the straights. Since I was out driving these cars in the corners, they were supposed to let me pass on the straights. As you can see in this video, I barely have the power to keep up with most of the cars on the straights.
There was 1 lap where I was able to get around clean, and approximated a time of about 2:01 based on timing on this video from when the last set of cones on the front straight disappear.

2013 Ford Focus ST 0-60 MPH Drive & Review
( http://www.TFLcar.com ) The 2013 Ford Focus ST is one of the best
American hot hatches on the market today. Unlike many economy cars that are
Boosted, turbo-charged and lowered to look fast...the 2013
Focus ST is genuinely fast and trackable. In other words it is a
comfortable on the track, as it is not the road. That's because Ford has
done their homework and tuned and turned the 2013 Focus ST into a proper
sports car. In another fun and informative TFLcar drive and review, Nathan
takes the fastest focus from 0-60 to find out just how fast it really is at
a mile above sea level.

2015 Ford Focus ► Interior & Exterior Design
In addition to a host of styling and technological advances, the new Focus
will offer the remarkably efficient, fun-to-drive, award-winning 1.0-liter
EcoBoost® engine with a six-speed
transmission -- surpassing the fuel efficiency of the previous model, and
once again raising the bar amongst the competition. Twice already,
automotive journalists have named Ford's 1.0-liter EcoBoost powerplant International Engine of the
Year, for 2012 and 2013. The optional engine will be offered alongside the
base 2.0-liter GDI I-4 engine, which currently helps the Focus deliver an
EPA-estimated rating of 40 mpg on the highway.
The smallest engine in the company's growing EcoBoost family will increase the choice for Ford
customers in the United States, as Fiesta is already available with the
1.0-liter EcoBoost engine.
In Europe, where it is already on five nameplates, the 1.0-liter EcoBoost accounts for 32 percent of sales of
the current-generation Focus and 26 percent of Fiesta sales this year.
Robust demand for the 1.0-liter in Europe has prompted Ford to double
production capacity at its state-of-the-art plant in Cologne, Germany, to
more than 1,000 engines a day.
A package of sensors brings a new level of convenience for compact car
customers by adding driver-assist technologies including a rearview camera
and an available Blind Spot Information System (BLIS®) and lane-keeping
Standard on Focus for the first time, the rearview camera will appear on
either a 4.2-inch screen or the 8-inch screen that comes with MyFord
BLIS uses two multiple-beam radar modules, the same used with cross-traffic
alert, which are packaged in the rear quarter panels, one on each side. The
radar identifies when a vehicle enters the defined blind spot zone and
illuminates an indicator light on the corresponding sideview mirror,
providing a warning that a vehicle is approaching.
Should a Focus driver start to drift out of the current lane without a turn
signal on, the available lane-keeping system provides a warning through a
series of steering wheel vibrations that mimic a rumble strip. If the
unintended lane departure is not corrected by the driver, the aid function
of the system actively applies steering torque to help the driver direct
the car back toward the center of the current lane.

Test Drive: 2002 Ford Focus
In this video I give a short tour and test drive of the 2002 Ford Focus. I
take viewers on a close look through the interior and exterior of this car
while showing details, over viewing of features, and noting unique styling
cues to the vehicle itself. I show the car idling as well as take it on a
thorough test drive through the city and highway on various surfaces. A
thorough drive of this car designed to give others a greater overall
appreciation of the vehicle.
