Default Subiefest time attack recap

We had major fun overall :) We just swapped a new upgraded set of axles from driveshaftshop and threw the car on the track for the 1st time since the AWD street class win of 2009 superlap battle finals Tarzan Yamada. Oh, also had a brand new set of rotors and pads :)

The WRX started the day with problems, but we managed to get it on the track about 11AM, and did 2 practice sessions before the time attack sessions started. I havent driven it since subiefest 2009, so was pretty exciting to get back behind the streering wheel. I did ok, but should have done better in the last session. Lesson learned :)

Although Crawford's STi was an unlimited class car, Subiefest organizers let it run in our class with a tire swap. We are not sure what tires they ran, but doesn't really matter as we already know it is one of the top 3 unlimited AWD cars in US. Maybe Michelle can chime in, and tell us who was driving which car on what tires doing what lap times :) Crawford also had a very good day, taking 1st place for unlimited and street/mod classes. Its always fun to be with hardcore subaru guys and see them push the limits. Cobb should have been running on 265 Hankook RS3s (140 treadwear), and we were on 255 Yokohama AD08s (180 treadwear).

Street/Mod class results:
1- Crawford Performance STi 1:26.XXX
2- Cobb Tuning STi 1:30.020
3- GarageGT WRX 1:30.630

In the Unlimited class, JC Meynet of AQ Motorsports went off track at turn 9 as he was pushing for RTA class record in the last time attack session. You can see the dust cloud in our Time attack 3 video. I'm sure he will be back soon on the track, luckly he didnt damage the frame.

Local guys from South Coast Subaru (team SCS) took the street class, Vincent (who also runs EVO/WRX challenge with us) got 1st place with a blazing fast time of 1:34.3XX. It will be fun to watch EVO/WRX street class competition as there is only buttonwillow and streets of willow left on the calendar.

I would like to thank to all Subaru owner who ran on the track, it was good to see the community making the effort to get into track world. We had our customers with us, racing and hanging out throughout the day.
Glenn Hendee won 2nd place for the driver's challenge,
Dennis Harp won 1st place for best 06-07 impreza.
Patrick Ward with his 05 STi had a personal best time of 1:31.233,
Glenn Hendee dropped his lap times to 1:42s from sluggish laps of 1:55 with a tire upgrade,
Gilbert & Ted were lapping 1:43-44s as well having fun on the track for the 1st time in their lives, and Andre, the crazy russian finally broke into 1:42s with his powerful but no so grippy STi ! A lot of fun lessons learned at Subiefest ! pictures
