Default SWRT Look-a-like Spotted in West Toronto

I was driving south on the 427 at around Eglington. I was coming back from meeting up with SWITCH (Rich) and Mabinesh (Mark)only a few blocks away. Ironic eh? The one I saw on the 427 was a WRB Impreza with the SWRT decals rally wheels (looked like 15" Compmotives). There were two short people in it, but I wasn't able to make I contact with the driver. It looked like they had aftermarket headlights too. I've heard of this car around Toronto, anyone on this site? I must have a closer look at that car!

Sweet car either way. Between that car and SWITCH's car, I've developed an inferiority complex. I gotta get myself some rally hardware. Thanks to SWITCH, Mark and I have templates to make some sweet mud flaps.

Could it have been one of the Subaru of Canada team cars?

I had a blast driving Randy Zimmer's Open Class Impreza through Toronto back to the states after when we won Swift Rapids rally and our trailer had broken. Too bad I cooked a fresh set of rallytires. The border guards had a few extra questions for me about the car but let me cross regardless.

I'm not positive but I'm pretty sure I saw the swoosh not the 'S' on the side. If I'm not mistaken only SWRT uses the swoosh. The Canadian and American teams use the 'S'. Also my car was louder than theirs was. The driver was also not in any kind of racing seat since what ever he was sitting in was reclined way back it seemed. I couldn't see much through the dark windows.

Anyways, I'm over it,

The car can be seen in the Mavis and Derry rd area. They live in the new housing development there. They own 2 Subies, a WRX and a GC8, the GC8 is driven by a blond lady and it has the SWRT logos all over it.

Nice people...
