You read correctly, Pastelito Racing took home the Subaru Challenge bragging rights trophy for the 2nd year in a row!Â
With our “Fab 4” doing exceptionally well in their respective classes it would’ve taken a dream team to beat us.Â
Kolin (aka: Rankink) got FTD and top Pax for the day and won the opportunity to drive in the National Subaru Run Off sometime in 2008 in a factory prepped MY08 STi!
I was only slightly off pace, but it was enough to bring in 2nd place in BSP and 6th overall Pax.Â The 17×10 CCWs and 275/40 V710s did amazing.
JMS put up some strong competition this challenge along with Koby Subaru and Mastro Subaru putting together teams with their top drivers.Â Next year is going to be intense and we’re all hoping it isn’t as hot!
Abby’s photography for the event was amazing even through the terrible heat and inclimate weather.Â All photos from the event can be seen here.
Â The evening ceremony hosted by Subaru and the Buccaneer Region SCCA went on without a hitch and some killer door prizes.
