Subaru Stars Going to WRC in Monaco

I will be attending the WRC race in Monaco with a Subaru VIP Hospitality area pass. I would like to be prepared with meaningful questions for the team and or drivers if I get the chance.
Anyone have some suggestions for meaningful questions?

Thanks,
---4porsh---

Well, as far as I can tell bring your mountain climbing gear. You'll need to find yourself a nice cliff face to attach yourself to to watch the rally.

See if you can find out what they did to make the car come to life in the last part of 05. If that doesn't work ask them if you can drive it.

hey, that makes two of us
my brother moved this year to "nice", france.
which is about 10 minutes from monaco... so i figured i'd take advantage of it...

I still haven't bought tickets yet though... I'm in the midst of it now... subaru hospitality VIP though, do we get special deals as subaru owners?

And Monte Carlo is just a district in the city, what's the point? The rally is in France anyway

FYI... Monaco is the name of the country, while Monte-Carlo is a district within Monaco. Taken from the official Monaco website

I've been there for a conference. Gorgeous. Expensive as heck but very nice.

Or at least that's how my wife and I did it at the 2004 Wales Rally GB.
Cheap? Hell no!
Worth it? Hell yeah!

Mebbe not worth it if you're a seasoned World Rally spectator, but for this coupla Yanks, it was just the ticket.
Now that I've been to one, I might try taking a stab at spectating on our own, but it's very nice being right there in the middle of things. No worries, no muss, no fuss- no parking problems (okay, our bus got slightly lost once), everything is taken care of. Ahhhhh...
And at the Rally GB, when it really started pissing down on SS7 (Walters Arena), we were warm and dry in the big heated VIP tent! Drinking Welsh beer, even. The tent wasn't solely SWRT's, but it was pretty exclusive nontheless.
Jeez, I think I just talked myself into doing another VIP event!

FYI, 4porsch- if you go around referring to it as "Monaco" EVERYone will assume you're referring to the Formula 1 race known by that name. It's the Rally Monte Carlo, man- probably the most prestigious of them all!

Good luck- you're gonna have a blast!

I'm going to Paris also--I don't say the 5th district or arrondissement.
When I travel, I tell people I live in Los Angeles--- not Brentwood.
It's disappointing that people can not read the first post---


"I would like to be prepared with meaningful questions for the team and or drivers if I get the chance.

and reply to what is being asked.

Monaco is not a country, it's a principality (from CIA Factbook)

I did the same thing for F1 Monaco this year. My girlfriend has a place in Nice. It's a short train ride over to Monaco, although I'm not sure how it works with the rally. I wouldn't try to drive anywhere, traffic can get pretty nasty.

As for smart questions, ask them if it's got a hemi, I hear they love that
