For those who have their doubts if I truly am a rally fan, my fiancée took this out from my closet:
That’s official Subaru World Rally Team (SWRT) swag of the good old days. I got all of this as gifts for participating in various local Subaru promotional events in the first years after purchasing my STi. I have; autumn jacket, short-sleeved team mechanic’s shirt, T-shirt, baseball cap, wallet, and formal wear watch. I still fit in them… barely! The waist bag isn’t SWRT but I got it in the same events. Thanks to my fiancée for making me remember! I did plan on purchasing the remainder of the SWRT collection, like the winter hat, etc, but I chose to spend on the car instead! The wallet is the only item I still use. It’s high quality stuff.
Oh and let’s not forget the car itself:
Let’s not forget my past participations in amateur rallies and time as a volunteer in RAC events:
More recently, going to see the FIA RX… and how about the name of the site itself? Recce RALLYSPORT! Hehehe…
A rally fan, really? Who could guess! To think that I had turned my back on it these past few years… Well, no more! I shall return to my original passion as soon as I’m able.
To quote the late Colin McRae:
“We’re here for a good time, not a long time.”
