Big round of applause for Qman!!! 1rst place!!!!


I didn't manage to get into the top three in Open class, but had a blast with the Baha. Hope you guys liked the ride!
My cumulative time is only 2 seconds off of 2nd and 3rd in Open with the imp. . . not too shabby for the little L.

Will have photos soon, the video is a blast to watch in slow mo. That Baha is something else. WHeeeeeeeeeeeee!!

A big HELL YEA to Ken - that brat kicks it

Bummed I had to take off after only 2 runs of the baja and your legacy (both seemed to be tearin it up!) - and I can vouch for the baja, :D all around

I don't have good enough zoom, but I got a few pics of Ken's run too.

Awesome!

Sorry I couldn't stay longer - when I went out to find lunch, my girl called - she managed to grenade her Cavilier on the West Seattle Bridge today. Grr...

It was awesome getting to meet all you guys, though!

Anyway, congrats to Ken!

I had a great time! The pics I took are lame because my camera won't zoom and they don't let u get too close to the action. Thanks to all who gave me rides! I had more fun getting rides then I did driving the volvo. :brolleye: Amazing job Ken! And Jeff got 2nd in his very first rally cross ever in his justy! That was cool... Way to go guys! :D

Congradulations to Ken and Jeff--you smoked them today! Thanks Craig for pix of my Brat that actually look like I'm moving! It was a fun day today with a fast wide open course that favored horsepower if you could keep it under control. Thanks to Northwest Region for hosting it. Excellent job!

Sorry I couldnt make it, I wish I coulda gone, but I had to work 2 hours today and my head gasket is giving me issues (and my tires are worn and my CV and wheel bearings need attention)

I let the car slide for too long, racking up 40K per year takes its toll :(

What an incredibly great day. This was so much fun. Almost all of the competitors were fun to be with. Got to see some people I hadn't seen since last year. Eric, Sean, Ed, Mark, Craig, Jeff all made Suabru's look good out there.

Second place caught Jeff completely by surprise. He was talking that he didn't think he did very well. His times were consistant and improving with each run.

Open guys got two good runs in before the track deteriated. The last two runs took a while to complete but was a lot of fun to watch.

Thank you for the compliments. All I can say is the Brat ran like it was on fire. It caught me by surprise how well it handled.

Scooby, Where? Ask the owners if they would consider renting out their fields for rallyX. It's a better deal if they(SCCA/NWR) run it. Better insurance and they supply the stuff needed to run safely.

Subaru was well represented. Actual count? Don't know. Subaru was well represented for sure. Brat's, wagon's, Legacy's, Impreza's, Justy's, WRX's and yes, even an STi and for good measure and fairness an EVO.

I guess I wasn't clear. If we can assist with locations we can have more events. More locations means more events.

How'd the Evo do compared to the STi? I imagine in the dirt the STi has a better time
