finally saying hello to old & new friends after a year of lurking - been reluctant to chime in since i rallycross an '84 Quattro. DO co-own a forester, 'tho, so i suppose i qualify for this board. i'm younger than my audi - in dog years anyway, and live in hillsboro, or. interests include improving rallycross opportunities in the NW.

one group that has stepped up this winter is the Spokane motorsports club - they held a SWEET rallycross sunday, 11/13/05 in two inches of snow, and have another planned next month. catch them at www.autosportsnorthwest.org

are there others interested in OR/WA winter rallycross?

hope to see ya' in the dirt,

bill

Hi bill, I'm a new forester owner from across the pond, pleased to make your aquantance.

Rallycross - good stuff that, I've spectated at quite a few events over here where mostly Metro 6R4, RS200 and certain others have been the vehicles of the day.

So Bill, how did you do?

Actually, I'd be up for it, but I really can't justify 10 hours of round trip driving for the fun of it. ---ed---

hi back - i hear rallycross in UK is quite a bit faster - the RS200 would be fun to watch here, but it would need those euro-only knobby tires to get any traction on our clay-based grass/dirt courses here in oregon. .......bp

hi, ed - the trip was easy for me to rationalize since i needed to visit friends & family there. same with erik. plus, i needed to chill, as you know.:cool: - the trip was good for my (normally low) blood pressure.:rolleyes: btw - the series of spokane falls thru downtown is still spectacular, as are dry falls and the ginko petrified forest on the way back to ellensburg. erik was overdriving or would have whooped me, and wes, the organizer drove my car better than i did! my car saw 14 laps! you would have loved it, ed. i'm thinking about their december event which should be snow over tarmac - with studs allowed!:)

check www.autosportsnorthwest.org for possible date change. ........bp

we had one rallycrosser from missoula last weekend at spokane - possibly "tiko" or sounds like - his name should appear soon on the results page if you don't know who he is. .. .....bp
