Re: New England Forest Rally (July 18-19, 2014)

I finally found out where the Saabaru came from

Re: New England Forest Rally (July 18-19, 2014)

Such an amazing weekend!

WUT!? How did I miss her!?

While there, I saw that ugly WRB WRX with the 9-2x front end, and I have to say that its just as ugly in person  biggrin

I'll have to read that article later. I was pumped to see a couple old Saabs cruising the course.

The ugly wrx was working the rally. I didn't see it in person but I did see it on my friend's dash cam.  The other Saab was in the house for a while too but left because there weren't enough beds.

Re: New England Forest Rally (July 18-19, 2014)

Fuck me, not going to be there this year. We thought the early bird entry ended yesterday, but it was actually June 20th. The price jumped from $800 to $1200. Looks like we are only running in Canada this summer, may try another in the Fall.

Re: New England Forest Rally (July 18-19, 2014)

I'll be there. I was also thinking about volunteering, they are still taking applications. Last year a bunch of people decided not to show up, it's almost guaranteed you will get in if you register.

Hey, I remember that car:

Re: New England Forest Rally (July 18-19, 2014)

Yup, that's the car I was supposed to be in. Do you have video of the Saab hitting the guard rail on that same corner?

Re: New England Forest Rally (July 18-19, 2014)

You are confused, my friend. It wasn't the Saab that hit that corner. It was this:
http://i.minus.com/ib0bve0uBCgUne.JPG

Unfortunately I didn't have my other camera recording then.  mad I remember that moment very well.

Sometimes, when you are looking through the lens of a camera, you forget you are standing directly in the path of destruction. Right from the start, I could tell the driver had chosen the wrong line.

http://i.minus.com/iA0fsdTYKeVjx.JPG
http://i.minus.com/iblaN9JpxIbGR3.JPG

This is when I duck and cover. Driver hit the RRear quarter, full on. Moved the barrier I was taking cover behind a good 2ft back.  eek
I placed the camera I took the rest of the videos from, about 3 ft back from this impact point. Nobody else hit the guard rail, but this guy came bloody close:
(I can't figure out how to start from 1:05)


Very cool. Nearly pooped my pants, but very cool.  heart driving embeer

I had a blast up there! Biked at Sunday River the day before, did some swimming and got to see a few rally cars!  roxor  roxor

I am pretty sure the Z will be there, but I can't make it. It we have a family reunion this weekend. I do need to get back up there. Maybe next year I will skip the reunion again.
