Alright guys. Here's a quick little update. Just getting back from the awards gala here now. I will get all the in car video up soon and I will have lots of pics to add as well.

Here's a shot of me and Richard on the finish line



Here's our whole team, from left to right Greg, Richard, me, and Kevin.



A shot of the car after the grueling 2500 km. Tires are still pretty good, brakes are near end of life, synchros are done, and the rear end needs a reshim. I also need to get the valve stem seals done in the 20v head. All in all the car made it out alright though. Not one single mechanical issue on stage all week.



Lastly, here's the awards Targa finishing medal (goes to anyone who successfully completes the rally). Only 8 of the 11 in open class finished as you can see... Sadly we missed out on a 3rd place podium finish by a single second, but there's always next year Also you can see the Targa plate we won by completing each and every stage in the rally below Targa trophy time. Trophy time is pretty attainable, but it is very difficult to ensure you bang off each of the ~45 stages without penalty or mechanical failure. I was VERY happy to receive this award as only ~ 20% of competitors win this on average each year, and it has taken many racers upwards of 4-5 years to get theirs.

Excuse the narrow field of view in the prologue videos. I had the camera lens set incorrectly and its fixed in all the videos later in the week.

Anyways, this video was our first run ever on the day prior to the actual event. Times did not count from this day and it served as a practice for competitors to work out kinks etc.

In my case I got the ECU problems (forgot to screw in DB37 connector which unplugged itself going over a compression) and the crash (didn't have a working comm system at this point and didn't hear the severe right call from the navigator).

Luckily these experiences on the first day helped us sort out the car for the rest of the week. Comm was a number one priority and we finally ended up getting a working system from another competitor.

That's the last of the bad camera setup, Leg 1 through 5 are proper 16x9 widescreen.
