Default Rally School Trailer - Subiesport #3


In 2011 I pitched Fuel TV an idea for a show based on the Dirtfish Rally School. We went back-and-forth, but ultimately they passed, citing a passing similarity to Octane Academy - a Ford sponsored show they were already committed on. Ever since, it's been in the back of my head. Percolating.

Fast forward to 2013. Dirtfish was still onboard for the idea. Enough to allow us to take over the school for a couple days last February to shoot an episode based on this concept for Subiesport TV. They provided us with a pair of trainer cars (one a 2006 STI, the other a 2008 STI) and a couple instructors. And, aside from a certain celebrity testing his GRC car in the background... we had the place to ourselves.

The full episode will be out next month, but in the meantime, we just dropped this this trailer to whet your appetite. If this episode is well received, we could be looking at a second spin-off series. Who knows, maybe you'll even have a chance to take part of the next class. I'd love to hear what you think about the concept.

Default Film Maker, Subie Enthusiast

My wife is from Bellevue Washington not far from the school. I have always been temped to drop the money to take the 3 day course.

As a film maker and car enthusiast I would love to see the episodes and get a feel for the school... and see your film skills.
