The first event for the RSOC in 2012 was a Driver Training and Track Day yesterday at Sandown Raceway. A number of Victorian members turned up on the day. With the entry open to all comers but limited to 45 cars in total, our Ford Focus RS’s were the most prominent make of car on the grid. Other car types comprised Lamborghini, BMW M, AMG Mercedes, Nissan and some hot Holdens, just to mention a few.
The Focus’s were very quick and completed the track day in style, with effortless ease, and with high degrees of primary and secondary safety. We received many comments from fellow attendees and the staff as bright green, and gleaming white RS’s all lined up tend to do. And once we were on the tgrack, the sheer speed and abilities of our cars was news to many.
