I actually had to unmod my car a little to be eligible. I was down about 50whp from what I run the car on the street.

I think I did OK considering my suspension setup, tire situation, and Auto-X n00bness.

You are most welcome! I know that Steve and I had a BLAST Friday night and yesterday, meeting everyone and seeing all those sweet-as-can-be subies!!

In terms of smoothness, something has to be said about running 100 less people than usual... But I'm really pleased you felt it was a smooth event as we were on a skeleton crew due to nationals.

I personally want to send a HUGE thank you to Randy and the rest of the Subaru of America crew (i was really impressed by how many representatives came!!) for giving us the opportunity to run a Subie Challenge event. I hope Subaru continues to use the autocross venue as a way to promote Subaru's name and bring the community together.

Woohoo !! 3rd in D-Stock!!!

Had a great time. Thanks to Keefe for arranging to let me drive the RS. Congrats on the win! Impressive driving for sure. I don't remember the name of the actual owner of the RS, but a BIG thanks goes out to him (Ron? Paul? I suck with names. ). Great guy. Many thanks. I owe you guys one! That car was a HOOT to drive. I want an RS again!

Pretty surprised I did as well as I did, but definitely happy. Sorry to AJ and Chris for spoiling their fun.

Made the challenge, but I knew I didn't have a chance unless I pulled like 2 seconds on my qualifying times. Well, I tried a bit too hard and spun in the left hander at the top of the course. Took it pretty easy the second run because I didn't want to spin again and hold up the fun for everyone else. The level of competition was really impressive, and some incredible times were pulled out in the Challenge.

Great to see everyone out there. Lots of people I don't get to see too often, but always enjoy their company! You know who you are!!

The bar on Friday night was a blast again. Definitely was a bit more "responsible" this year and switched to water early enough for a fine day on Saturday. Weather was great too. Woo hoo!

Thanks to SOA, NASIOC, and all the sponsors for a great event. That was definitely one of the smoothest run autocrosses I've ever been too.

Can't wait until next year!

I haven't autocrossed in probably ten years, and this was the Legacy's debut as well, so I wasn't unhappy with the results. I was a mess on the course, I must say, driving too fast into just about every corner and just punishing all four tires constantly. I'm would hope with some practice I could do a little better. The car seemed to work pretty well. For a family hauler, it gets out of its own way.

I have a bunch more pics, but it'll take a few days to get 'em up. Stay tuned.

1st in AS, and 4th in the Challenge. My best autocross day to date by far. I don't where my first run came from, but I'm guessing the V710's were cool and just stuck. My other 3 runs were with cones. I managed 2 good clean runs in the Challenge. There was a lot of hustle and heads-up work on course and at start, and that is large part of the event running smoothly. Course workers were awesome. Hope everyone liked my course, it was my first try at course design. It wasn't as easy as I thought, and that was the main reason for the delay getting it open for walk-through.

I had a blast!
Steve

New York's region of the SCCA had 6 representative's this year. Chris in AS placed 2nd, and his wife placed 1st in SML in the VERY SAME car. Dave Brown (#33)from MSPT (www.mspt.net) came in 1st in SM with his co-driver Spencer (#37) placing second. My co-driver Mark Valera (#63) (NYR Organizer) placed 4th in SM and I (#62) placed 7th in SM in the other MSPT sposored car.

All six of us were able to make it into the SuperStar Challenge where Chris finished 2nd and Spencer was able to muster up a 3rd place finish as well as FTD with a 41.5xx. Unfirtunately the other MSPT car suffered from really bad brake fade (we think) and both Mark and my 2nd runs in the Challenge were done with basically no brakes.

A big thank you to all the sponsers, and organizers of the event. It was truly worth the drive to come down for a great event. An even bigger thank you goes out to the volunteers for the SuperStar Challenge. Unfortunately, they were on a skeleton crew and had to red flag my best run because of a down cone in the far left sweeper after the offsets. Oh well, better safe than sorry.

Thank you again to everyone for a great event.

**HUGE** thanks to the Super Star Challenge workers...!!!! You guys made my life much easier, and I know there wasn't much in it for you guys, though you got to see me get sideways ... a LOT... ha ha!

BTW - Subie Challenge workers are AWESOME overall. If there's anything the WDCR committee noticed was how you all ******RUN****** for cones unlike some of our event regulars...

Hats off to you all!

I thought it was great. Generally easy for the many first-timers to follow, but tricky to drive as fast as possible. The only issue seemed to be that a lot of guys were getting tunnel vision through the offset gates and skipping the cone with the three pointers at station 6.

The course was superb.

The event was AWESOME.

Long live Subaru Challenge Events... and shame on those who didn't come because they are missing out hanging out with some awesome people and a great community.

It is not about the racing! It is about the awesome people that make up the community!
