I'll arrange a group buy while I'm there.

My schedule meant that I could not take John Felstead up on his offer of driving the Westie at Donnington (that is such a bute of a track), or Richard's offer for a spin in the 22B so I just had to salvage the holiday somehow.

There is one big potential problem here. I'm not going to be satisfied with less than 300 bhp and want to be sideways all the time. I'm a born adict.

If I email pictures, is there someone who can post them?

Talking Going to rally a 320 bhp Prodrive WRC Impreza

I've booked it. August 22nd. I'm the only one booked in on that day so I'll get lots of practice. Owen gets to ride with the instructor. Should be a blast.

I'll get Owen to take lots of pictures (and hide the embarrassing ones).

Thumbs up

Petrie -- and if you can get someone to video tape it, even better. I've got a vid-capture card so i can capture it as long as it's in NTSC format!

LaterZ!
Darren!!

I gave my video camera to a relative when I came to Canada. Everything over there is PAL.

If I can borrow one, I will have it transfered to NTSC when I come back.

Finally back in Vancouver. I'll send the pictures to Orbiter when I have created an article for the Vancouver web site. A video camera would have been great. With still pictures you just don't get it. The sound that Subie makes going around the track is intoxicating.

The day was fantastic. Started out in a RWD Escort to get the feel of swinging the car through corners. 180 right, gravel - brake, flick left, hard right, let it rotate, full power, sooooo sweet.

After 3 sessions in the Escort and getting to grips with the circuit came the Subie. First few laps sitting alongside the instructor. 320bhp full blown Prodrive rally car - it flies. The car is just fantastic. Technique is different to the RWD car. Much less dancing and in many ways, much harder to drive. The grip out of the corners (on gravel) just has to be experienced. Never once was I encouraged to slow down. If anything quite the opposite.

Anyway, I'll leave all the juicy bits for the article. Some words of caution though, it's addictive. I'm already planning a longer trip back next year.
