Believe it or not, but North Dakota is a state and people do live here. I'm not living here by choice (Air Force), but I digress. I've been watching WRC off and on since the mid 90s. Watching McRae and Loeb was amazing. That little Impreza really intrigued me.
I got away from rally and got into autocross and watching road racing for a number of years. Mainly during my Honda days. I've owned and autocrossed 2 Civic Si's, a Fit and lastly my S2000. I sold my S2000 after my wife convinced me it made no sense and she couldn't see me enjoying it. It was always stored in the winter. She said I was a Subaru/rally guy. I've always wanted one, but could never afford an STi.
As of last October I'm an STi owner. Since then I've gotten back into rally. I've been trying to find some local TSDs to cut my teeth in the sport. Work and this deployment I'm on has gotten in the way. I'm trying to generate some buzz with rallycross in our region (Badlands SCCA).
My ultimate goal is to participate in a stage rally at some point and finish. I think I'm going to focus on being a co-driver since I'm a bit OCD with details. Plus, I don't have the funds right now to be a driver/car owner. I didn't think I would type this much, but there it is.
Hello, I'm Carl.
ETA: I forgot to add my first rally was this year at 100 AW as a marshal. Thanks to all of you that covered me in dust and pelted me with rocks.
