Default AVO at the 2007 spring Hypermeet!

After 48 hours of non-stop work, the AVO widebody STI made it's debut at the Evo vs. STI Hypermeet! It was a serious week of Murphys Law cropping up at every point - if anything can go wrong, it did. From fuel pumps that were pumping backwards to finding out the tyre sponsor wanted us to run street tyres despite it being an open class contest, they saw it all happen. By Sunday morning their shop foreman was hallucinating and talking to little pink fairies, but they dragged him out to the track, stuffed 45 liters of java in him, and got both him and the car going.

Btw, it is not "pink", Scooby owners prefer "Cherry Blossom Red".

No, it was clean sweep in the 10 lap battle, both street and open class, by STI models. Street was won by a GC8 STI, Open by the Prova STI.

There will be many videos and magazines features on this race, that I know for certain!

I was there at the hypermeet and the AVO impreza was very fast and sounded great! Plus those new titanium lip wheels were sick. I'm definitely going to have to stop by the shop one day.

I noticed that one impreza on the first turn after the front straight away crashed into the barrier. Who was that? It was a white one.

I took a few pictures also, I will post them up once I get a chance.

Come on down and stop by anytime, we'd love to have you down.

I believe the incident you're talking about involved the old-school white Evo who later ended up crashing into yellow Evo around the dunlop corner. He didn't crash, rather tried to pass someone and wasn't succesful and when he had to slam on his brakes he through up a bunch of smoke. You are talking about during the Open class 10 lap battle right?
