Little did I know what this is, until years later I watched these cars at the X-Games. There was one driver that caught my eye, he drove a Subaru and had a style like I have never seen before. Then coming to the finish I watched as he rolled his car coming over a jump. Immediately as the wheels landed on the ground, the car took off, finishing the race. I did not know the history of Colin McRae at the time but what he did drove me crazy for cars and rally. It would be a couple more years before I experienced a rally. I was invited by my good friend Trevor Wert, then of Team O'Neil Rally School, to go and experience New England Forest Rally. I was amazed by the cars and the speed. One team noticed my excitement and I guess I had a great passion because then I became friends with Brakim Racing. It was talking with them that I decided I need to start racing. Apparently other teams took notice of my passion as it wasn't long before they were asking what team am I with and saying that they can't wait to see me out racing!
Currently the vehicle drives around Boston as I go to school for automotive training and work for Subaru. As a technician I have 8 Nissan Certifications and will be headed for Mercedes Benz training in a couple weeks. Soon I will be getting some racing in with the NER region SCCA rallyx with the eventual goal of having a Open Lite rally car in NASA Rallysport and Rally America.
So thanks to GTR Lighting, Rekleiner Vinyl Graphics, Brakim Racing, and now Circuit Motorsports, what only seemed like a dream a couple years ago is now becoming a reality.
