Yikes - doesn't look like Liberty Subaru did that great of a job of saving that STi at the top. What happened to it?

Considering they stuffed it in a wall at Road America yesterday, just finishing is an accomplishment!


Lots of good photos!

Hate to see anyone end an event that way.

Hmm, why didn't they use the tow hook?

Anyway let me guess cleared the top of that hill and wasn't pointed straight at the time the suspension unloaded? Physics plays out so well on some tracks.

I suspect he was going the other direction. Looped it on the corner maybe?

Got a little wide and put a wheel off in the dirt, then over corrected and shot across the track and stuffed it.

Great pictures, thanks. Not often you see an M-5 crossed up sideways in a full power drift.

How did the Forester do overall?

Here's a couple of excerpts from Car & Driver:
Quote:
...

With the top three positions essentially decided after the previous day’s time trials at Road America, in Elkhart Lake, Wisconsin, the only real drama in the skidpad competition was the struggle for the top spot in the Mid-Price sedan category.

Like the entire One Lap campaign, this battle began on the Tire Rack skidpad, where Paul Gerrard’s Mitsubishi Evolution VIII posted one of the worst scores while Blake Fuller’s Subaru WRX STi scored near the front of the pack.

Although Gerrard’s Mitsu was in the top five or six runners at every circuit through the week, and actually posted the quickest time of all in the first road circuit time trial on a damp track at Heartland Park in Kansas, Fuller was always close behind.

Thus it came down to who could circle the skidpad quickest, and Gerrard prevailed, winding up seventh to Fuller’s 15th, nailing down class honors as well as fifth in the overall standings. Fuller, working with about half the horsepower of Gerrard’s highly-tuned Mitsubishi, was a very creditable sixth overall.

...

The other interesting skidpad performance entailed the reappearance of the Subaru WRX campaigned by Andrew and Adam Firestone.

The Subie was last seen in a severely wrinkled condition following the second time trial at Road America.

A media darling thanks to his appearance on “The Bachelor” TV show, Firestone stuffed the car into a tire wall at Road America’s turn five, and the Subaru looked to be finished.

But some resourceful overnight patching and fabricating got the Subaru going again, and it showed up at South Bend minus its front fenders, hood, and grille.

There was some grumbling from regular Lap Dogs about how the fragile Subaru had managed to make it to South Bend.

The One Lap rules require competitors to actually drive their cars from track to track, and as one veteran observed, “there are no bugs on the front of that car.”

Firestone admitted that his car had made the 250-mile trip from Wisconsin on the back of a flatbed truck, but said “we drove it in here,” which he felt was sufficient.

Did it matter? Apparently not. The Firestone team wound up 22nd overall.
