It's the first round of World Rally Championships: Bridgeport series - which team Subaru did ended up under the bridge. The Subaru team needs to get back into the game because there's a Mitsubishi dealer on Bridgeport and their 6 speed automatic Lancers are taking the lead.

If the damage is to the front of a Subaru, it's most likely it's totalled because the Flat 4 calls for drive belts in the front, if anything such as the radiator/AC condenser pushes into the spinning belts... Gone!

it takes quite some speed to lose traction in a AWD, soft compound tires, and a dry sunny day.

mmm i have no pity for the person.

If there is no other vehicle involved, I must say I agree. Let him learn the lesson the hard way.

Wonder if ICBC will cover it.

Obviously, overspeed was the only possible cause of this accident unless another vehicle taped the STi and made it off track and loose control. I say it may consider reckless driving if no other vehicle involved..

haha, i test drove a wrx yesterday at the subaru dealership and the guy told me about this crash. its funny to see the pixs now. He said there wasn't another car involved. They just drove stupid and crashed.

and the guys who bought it were told repeatedly to take it easy for the first while to break in the engine...and even after that the car has so much power becareful.

It was not the quantity of posts it was based on quality.

Only a few ROOGP are left on RS as most of the ROOGP got fed up of the BS that the new breed of Post Whores are putting up in here.

He probably drove a 4-banger before, and figured he had to stomp on the gas to get anywhere.

Even then, it would be hard to crash like that with STi's superb handling and grip.
