EA82 stage rally days
Posted 15 January 2013 - 06:48 PM
I'd HIGHLY recommend to anyone interested in classic motorsports to take a look through his albums, and maybe consider buying some of his work, as he is trying to make this a living (which means thanks to Rally America, he's likely getting out of Rally for 2013 and any foreseeable future).
Anyway, the reason I'm posting this, is I started noticing a name, Chad DiMarco, in the late '80s that seemed to have a different EA82 rally car every year, and it seemed to be a new RX model (switched sedan to coupe in the '87 season). Here's one sweet picture of him in '87 in a sedan:
So I started searching for his name, and found this article on the history of the Subaru Rally Team USA on the Subaru Drive Performance website. Pretty cool read!!
"In 1986, DiMarco fielded two cars in the WRC round in Olympia, Washington. New Zealander Possum Bourne also entered a Subaru and, significantly, this was the first time Subaru had entered multiple cars in a WRC event besides the Safari Rally in Africa.

And this: "For the 1987 season, DiMarco used one of the RX Turbo 3-door coupes that had been prepared for the Safari Rally."
Also.....he won the first of his 4 Group A National Rally Championships in 1990....which was the year he switched to the Legacy chassis.....
