If Subaru totally dropped out of motorsports using the WRX, but Mitsubishi or someone else continued motorsports involvement with the Lancer or something, then maybe it would effect my next performance car purchase...

But as long as the WRX is still out there competing on a "Works" level, I will always own one, no matter where it finnished.

Hello,

Shik makes a good point! If the EVO was all over the TV and the WRX wasn't, I wonder how many would-be WRX owners would be forking over money to Mitsu?

As for a Subaru NASCAR effort - what 1960's technology would Subaru have to draw on, here in the US? I guess they could campaign a little 360?

Yes, but with a clause. I don't want any tube-frame cars the "look like" the thing I buy at the dealership. It has to be at least based on the standard unibody.

Why do you think I've been driving Subaru's since 1996? It is because of their participation in the WRC.

3rd Poll: Will Motorsports Results Influence You?
No...
becuase a car is mear transportation. Yes fun transportation, but... some of the things that make a car an excelent race car, have little bearing on daily driving. maybe that's just me
I'd prefer to have my car be a little more balanced, but have little compromises in luxery for performance...
though it's nice to see my brand of choice win.
