You can view the page at http://fordstnation.com/content.php?r=198-focus-st-hot-laps-in-dearborn

Earlier today I was informed that Ford Performance Group is inviting anyone willing to make the drive to Dearborn, Michigan for special access to the SVT Homecoming event to tour the facilities and test drive the 2013 Focus ST.

This Friday at 10:45am. (8/10/2012)

I need to know your real name and contact information (phone number) via PM ONLY if you are interested, so I can give it to Ford Performance Group for security clearance.

This is the real deal, so for those of you have felt like you have not had a chance to be a part of the Focus ST events going on, this is it. I will be going to this event, so anyone who goes will get to meet me. This should be very educational, because some of the pioneers of the SVT will be there. As well as Lisa, and others from the ST group.

Read about the full event here: http://origin.library.constantconta...48/2012SVT_Homecoming_EventGuide_FULLPAGE.pdf



You may express your interest in this thread, but DO NOT give out your personal information in the thread. Remember, PM me.

The deadline is 4:00PM tomorrow (8/9/2012) for anyone that wants to go.

Son of a bitch! Of course my friends are getting married that weekend.
Although this is a once in a lifetime event. People usually get married more than once anyway :p

You could look at this as a reward, for all your hard work, with this site. Along with a finge benefit, of your move. Enjoy the day, we all look forward to hear how it goes/went.... Upon reading further; no cameras allowed :(

PM sent! I would love to test drive an ST before receiving mine. I'm only 20 minutes away from Dearborn (across the border).

Damnit!! I'm gonna have to see if I can get off work. Of course all the ST drive events in cities nowhere nearby are on the weekend and this is in the work week.

As an SVTOA Member I almost went to this but wasn't able to make the drive out this weekend :-(

Of course, I finally get a shot at something local and can't get off work. Ugh, only a half hour away from Dearborn. Oh well, I'll just drive one of the ST2s when they get on the lots while I wait for my ST3...thanks for the heads up about this.

This sounds amazing!
Of course this is one of the worst weeks for this to come up, my boss is out this week and I'm swamped!
I'm still going to see if I can get Friday off though!!
Or... Maybe I'll have to "work" out of one of our Detroit area offices on Friday! ;-)

It's a 2.5 hour cross state drive for me, but it would be well worth it to me, and I'm used to doing that trip for work anyway.

Chad,

Did they specify if it would be hot laps strictly as a passenger or will we be allowed to get some behind the wheel time?

Negative ghost writer. I believe we will be passengers. All we can do is ask though. :O:

Obviously, the Friday event is the best part of the weekend.
However, do you know if we are invited to join the other activities this weekend as well?
The SVT Garage visit on Saturday would also be pretty awesome to attend.

To be honest I am not 100% sure. My instinct tells me that it would be most likely fine if you did stick around for the entire weekend. I can ask tomorrow when I talk with the Coordinator.
