I've uploaded my onboard to YouTube now. Nothing particularly hairy although I did enjoy taking passing three cars in four corners! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-N-A...ature=youtu.be

Thanks Suze, looked like you were enjoying yourself!

I'm a bit bruised and battered, but the car took the brunt of it

I did take a load of pictures so will see if I've got any of you or your husband.

It was a brilliant event; I'd wanted to do it for a while but had put it off (have done the Goodwood Stages the week before normally and wouldn't have planned the two events in two weekends, or sometimes they've clashed). Very pleased to have done it; not sure how many cars will have tackled Wales Rally GB twice and then managed 40 mins on the Silverstone GP too but what a day! A huge amount learnt to apply for the future...

Thanks for looking for photos of us. I have some of your Subaru being recovered (and a friend has some just after it happened) as I came back to the pits and found your sorry looking sight. Hope you feel back to full fitness quickly!

I've got it home now, not sure what parts at the front have survived but it still rolls and everything from the cabin backwards appears fine at first glance. Will probably get another one and swap any good bits over, I can't think of another vehicle that can do so much for as little money - it was also our family car for long journeys, given that our other car is a Nissan Leaf so is a pain to go long distances in.

Good that at least there are some positives. The wagon always seemed much less valued, I guess because the saloon was the rally car. But as you say, a very useful multi-purpose car! Out of curiosity, have you Pomíd it with enabled airbag(s) or disabled. No idea on the rules for them!

I am over the moon to find out todayI was 12th! Was not expecting that so very happy given the number of entries and my first attempt at the event. Missed Goodwood Stages (driving) to do the Pom so pleased to have an enjoyable day, backed up with a good result. Planning to be back next year...!

The wagon is also of lower value because they only made the WRX version (for the UK at least). Only saloons were the top STI models here – bigger turbo, better brakes, semi-forged engine bits, 6 speed gearbox, adjustable centre diff etc. In Japan they did do an STI wagon up to 2001 but they are quite rare over here. A lot of my upgrades were to use STI bits but fundamentally the wagon is heavier and set up for lesser performance. Mine was running about 320 bhp.

I ran it in the Pom in 2017 and 2018 (my only entries), and won a couple of awards. There's nothing in the regs about airbags, but both mine went off as it was a sufficiently hard impact. In principle the Pom should be a road-going production car event, although that principle has always been tested somewhat!

320 real horses, phew! Cant imagine your wagon as a tow car much more powerful than the one on the trailer! It seems the japanese sensors dont use the same settings, I had a bad surprise one morning with a Mitsu Evo flying over a simple bump. We had three black ones, cherished by a nice german guy belonging to Rally Art. One of your relatives, Mike?
