Thoughts on and questions about V2R from the Subaru guy

I think it was before pit 3. Stuck in a bad spot. Had to back up and get a running start twice before i actually got by him. I think I may have scared him a bit (Sorry dude) on the third attempt since it looked like i was running straight at him, even though i was just getting speed to curve around him up on the hill.

I don't remember that, I'll watch for it on the video.

Here is the only picture I've taken that shows how big the crack in the body is. Goes almost all the way up and down behind the RF strut tower.



Couple pictures at Firehole Gorge:





Hill/mountain we tried to climb there:



Arch north of Vernal:

Looking back on Yampa road, Haystack rock (I think) in the middle:

What a great adventure.. you inspire I think a lot of people that don't have the balls to do it themselves (me) I think maybe a different car kinda car maybe next time..or you might be Subaru enthusiast... this is the same as how the pioneers in the sport started it all!
I commend you for your efforts, good luck on the next adventure!! :)

Thanks. As our friend in Vegas said, we're doing what we can with what we have.

I know many people who have driven their cars to the 500 1000 or Mint 400 raced them and driven them home. Many class 11 racers did that when the class was huge. II know a few class 6 cars did it mini trucks. I am sure all their stories would be cool like this one was

Video from our race:


If anyone has footage or pictures of the rock garden near the end, I'd like to see what that was like.
That was a blast to watch !!!!! I flashed back to when I was a kid riding with my uncle while he bombed it down desert roads out in the Anza Borrego desert in a Wagoneer hahahahaha

Thanks. We're thinking about trying it again. Just shows most human decisions aren't rational I guess.
We're also thinking about driving to Reno early this summer, doing some trail riding on the way out and back (CO/WY/UT), and check out the end of the V2R course and possibly the Rubicon. If anyone's interested pm me or post.
