That's good for Mirra, though a blown turbo ended his STPR early. Looks like Subaru's reign at the top is over for this year in Rally America. Nice to see Bacon doing so well as a straight up privateer though!

^it was stated "blown turbo" but a few people at STPR spectating were speculating that as he supposedly went rear first into the woods .... just speculating

Bacon is doing great and driving very well. There is a lot more talent out there in the privateer world. I wish there was more of a video following for those that pay their own way and make the sacrafices. Not the one's that are just given a car and legendary training but still have disappointing results ...


Lageman in an open car would be very interesting.

Finally. Thank God. I'm a Subaru man but honestly RA is getting boring with Pastrana winning all the time

Yeah Rallybagger is right. Mirra Crashed. Considering Lagemann had two stage wins, the longest Stage and the shortest I think that it's clear that with 100 more ft lbs he'd be going a lot faster. The SP car is very limited on power. There are a lot of talented privateers coming up again as we can see. It's good to see them all mixing it up.

It would be a dream to do a rally school like Tommi's. Maybe someday.

I believe he's working on it.
They are lining up a new EVO for him...last I knew it was stuck in customs over in Europe or something like that.

I guess its to be expected, but....

Lagemann already ran in an open car, not just an open car, but a SRT-USA car run by Prodrive USA.

He also ran an open class Evo in 2007 in his effort to get into the X Games, he then rolled the car in practice and had a poor showing but...


There was also his campaign in 2006 with the Escort Cosworth for X Games once again...

I'm aware that Lageman was backed by a factory, the evo he ran was out of his pocket.

They are working on bringing an EVO over for him, maybe NEFR if customs ever let it go. It's been on the US shore for a month now.

It's just nice to see such a strong privateer group coming up and capable of beating these factory backed guys. It shows that talent outways money and of course some luck plays a roll (after all it is rally)
