SVT Focus Chasing a Vintage BMW Race Car

To me, this is the quintessential lapping day experience -- my car running well, chasing a car of comparable capability on a sunny summer afternoon at the track. Would have been nice to have my R-compounds on, but very fun nonetheless. It does not get much better than this for me at a lapping day. This was probably either a BMW 1600 or 2002 (did not check it in the paddock), but in any event, body was definitely from that that era of vehicle (60s to 70s). BUT: No telling what is under the hood at this point.

2004 Ford Focus SVT Import H8TER
Here's one of my rides. It's a Focus SVT. Not a scratch on it yet. I picked this up locally from someone who babied it for 5 years. It has never seen a winter yet, and it curently has 20,000 miles. This is my daily driver. BTW...I don't really hate imports, some are pretty cool actually, however, living in the Detroit area, I just prefer driving a domestic name tag. Enjoy, ~Combat Chuck
