Fresh from their outstanding showing at the famed Sebring International Raceway, Steeda President Dario Orlando and Racing Chief Engineer, Steve Chichisola continued their very successful development process on the Steeda Focus ZX3. This time, Moroso Motorsports Park in Jupiter Farms was the scene of the action as the SCCA Florida Region hosted the Double South Atlantic Road Racing Championship races. Dario Orlando qualified the Focus third in a field of 60 cars the first day.
” I cannot believe just how easy and how much fun the ZX3 is to drive,” Dario stated, ” We are getting the suspension dialed in as we test and continue to develop new parts for our customers,” he continued. The 2.0 liter Zetec engines produces around 200 normally aspirated horsepower, enough to keep the yellow ZX3 ahead of the majority of the field. In fact the only cars to finish ahead of the Focus were purpose built race cars during the two days of competition.
Encouraged by the progress of the Focus, Orlando explained,”we plan to continually up grading our ZX3 all season long as the development process continues. The Focus is an exciting car both on the race track and on the street and we look forward to engineering and developing more and more competition proven Steeda Focus performance parts.”
