|Video| 2012 Mt Hood Rally Car Meets Deer

StartingGrid friend, Pujo! co-driver, and mechanical wizard Doug Chase, of Chase Race shared this video from an event he was crewing at last weekend. I’ll let Doug describe the video, “Last weekend was the Mt. Hood rally and we were crewing for our good buddies at Roshambo Racing. Unfortunately our rally was ended just a little bit early. By a deer.” The video has clear audio that shows a little concern about conditions. Rally is awesome.

“Just Woah”- Mark Higgins Subaru WRX STI Isle of Man TT Record Attempt

I had read about this six months ago, but this was the first time that I’d seen it! His huge moment at 150mph just serves to remind me that your hands follow your eyes, when racing.   Thanks again to Steven Taylor for the find!

“Quote from YouTube- See Mark Higgins and his Subaru WRX STI setting an all-time course record for the historic Isle of Man TT Mountain Course. Highlighting  the speed and drama surrounding rally driver Mark Higgins’ lap that averaged 115.356 MPH. After the run, Higgins talks through the “moment” at Brey Hill when he momentarily loses, and then regains, control of the WRX STI at more than 150 MPH.”

Subaru BRZ- Super GT (Video)- We are ‘Proud of Boxer’

Christmas must be coming upon us early, as automakers have been getting involved in some exciting projects. earlier in the week, I posted a picture of the new Subaru BRZ Super GT300 car.

I’m already in love with it, as I’m glad that Subaru is entering into the series with a new an exciting chassis.

Just this morning, I was able to find a preview video of the car that I wanted to share with you all. Happy Friday!

Hopefully Toyota will bring more information on thier proposed Prius Super GT contender soon, as well.

Roughridden Parked Subaru- Drift?

Found this photo at random during my lunchbreak.

Taken in the classic JDM drift-parking lot, I don’t know much about it. I do know however, I love it. (In a way that I’m apart ashamed of.)

You can tell that someone took Toyota Chaser headlights and fixed them to the front, which only the Japanese would think to do. Can anyone help me do some research and find out more about this wagon?

Anyone know any more about it?
