Autoblog UK reported that Mark Higgins has broken the TT record for this road rally in a standard WRX  STi.

However, the event wasn’t without some peril as Higgins almost crashes hard as seen on these videos:

What I don’t understand is how calm and collected he is AFTER that save. I mean, I myself have had some crazy saves at the TRACK but on a city street with light poles everywhere. Also, who gave that co driver a tranquilizer shot before this ride because he was equally calm after that save!



Factory Five is building a WRX powered kit car that is track ready and they want you to design it in their latest contest! Our friends from Autoblog gives us the low down:

Massachusetts-based Factory Five, the builder of some exceptional Shelby Cobra replicas and the GTM race car, has announced a new project vehicle. Starting with a Subaru WRXdonor car, the Factory Five team says it will be able to produce a mid-engined two-seater for under $15,000… and you can help design it.

It’s a sure bet that they will get a ton of feedback and designs of this new track ready kit car.

Factory Five is teaming up with Grassroots Motorsports Magazineto run a public design contest. The goal for the this as-yet unamed sports car will be to feature the WRX running car and weigh in at just 1,800 pounds. It will have a removable top, 95-inch wheelbase and the Subie engine will power the rear wheels.

The winner will receive $5,000.00 cash and have their concept drawing made into the real deal. So, readers, get your creative minds at work!


I’ve fallen in love with the “Get More G’s” campaign that features Subaru poster boys Travis Pastrana and Dave Mirra. Well, the Aussies have their campaign for the new WRX, “All 4 the Driver”.

So which one do you guys like better?

Spotted this DC Shoes Gum Ball 3000 replica WRX from the Modified Live event in Brands Hatch, UK. Not sure if it’s everyone’s cup o’ tea but it’s interesting that people are starting to replicate iconic Subarus. How long will it be until we see the Gymkhana STi being replicated?
