I am working on squeezing every second out of the stock engine and stock tune. Here is my updated time running Falken Azenis RT-660 Tires at High Plains Raceway with the full course configuration. 2:07:10
HPR Stock RS 2:07:10
Also, I think I’m gonna try to see two tracks and do HPR and Pueblo in one weekend. Do you have any hot lap videos from Pueblo by any chance?

Real late to this party but has my first real track day ever yesterday. It was a blast at VIR with NASA. I got a 2.36.27 on the full course. Factor stock brake pages and rotors with 26,000 on them and everything else except a set of tires I got. They are MPSS about 10,000 on them. I was pretty happy for my first ever track day!

I really enjoyed HPR, what a good track!

I only managed a 2:15.45. Comparing the videos, you were a few mph faster than me just about everywhere. I think some of that 8 second deficit was due to greasy tires and a heat soaked engine (it was 100 ambient) but I’m very very impressed with your 2:07, bravo!




I also really enjoyed Pueblo. Turns 5-7 were very tricky and fun to work on. Here is my favorite lap from that day, which was also 100 degrees.

Was back at VIR this weekend on the full course. Best time was today a 2:21.94 with Hankook RS4s and ferodo ds2500 pads. No traffic, got all my lines hooked up well, and it was my smoothest of the weekend by far! Had a few other low-2:20s too. I’ll try and pull the video tomorrow from my Gopro

The Focus ST/RS/Fiesta ST database on Facebook's ST/RS Track Drivers Club is where I submit all my times.
Thanks for sharing, I never knew about that group or database

This was my first time ever at a track, so I'm about as much of a newbie as possible with this. I do not have a good basis for what a "good" time is at Road America for a streetcar like ours, but I'll throw my time in the hat to start us off. I'm looking forward to more entries from Road America!

Years later here.
But a 2:55 isn’t bad if it’s your first time in track. I was low 3:0x with my Focus ST. But that was on stock everything, including oem pads/fluid.

I’ve never had the RS at RA, but will probably take it one day.
