The staff and I mulled this over, and think this is a great idea to bring 2 communities together. The event seems very well planned out and looks to be a good time for all. I truly hope that as many people from our community can come out and support this event!

Just wanted to take a quick moment to introduce myself as well as invite your FMV (Mazda 3, Speed3, and Fusions) forum members to FocusFest 2011 (www.focusfest.com).

My name is Thomas Tang and I'm one of the co-founders on a Ford Focus website called FocusFanatics.com. Each year we host an event called FocusFest as a way of bringing our community members together for a day of car show and track event. Recently one of our community members inquired to our staff if he can include his Mazda3 friends to come to FocusFest. Our team loved the idea and inspired us to bring up the topic of reaching out and inviting the Mazda communities to join in on the fun. One of our moderators who now owns a Mazdaspeed3 and also a member of your forum suggested that we approach your site first, due to your overlapping of Mazda & Ford. Since the Ford/Mazda compact-car segment is relatively small compared to others, we wanted to approach you with the idea of perhaps having a combined Mazda & Ford event. By bringing our communities together we can put on a much larger event as well as reinforce the Ford and Mazda relationship.

This year our event will be held at BlueGrass Raceway in Owingsville, KY on August 13th.

Regards,
Thomas

If anyone has any questions I'd be more than happy to answer them. Hopefully with a good turnout we can do these joint events between communities every year.

So if you have a Mazda 2, 3, 6, etc please feel free and register for the free car show.

I'll be going, just haven't decided which car I'm bringing yet.

Mostly stock Focus Zx3, or since there's drag racing involved, the Mustang.

There will be some stock Focus there too. If you bring either a Mazda or Focus you can also participate in the car show. Or if prefer to bring the Mustang, you can race it against the more powerful Focus. :)

I'd be ashamed if I got beat by a focus. Especially since this is an 1/8th mile track. I know there's some 11 second focuses out there, but yeah, they get speed in the top end, not quite as much down low where I do. I wish this was a 1/4 mile track, because I've been itching to break into the 10's and should be able to now.

I'm one of those odd people that went from owning a Mazda 3 to a Mazdaspeed 3, down to a base model focus with crank windows, lol.

I went to a focus fanatics meet and they duct taped a guy to a tree.

Seriously.

It was very fun though :D
