Subiefest 2009 - Willow Springs, Rosamond, CA 10.10.2009

The week preceding the event date LIC Motorsports made the call to not attend this event due to our 3rd place last Redline Time Attack event (our suspension was not up to task for an unlimited class event) and quite frankly not being in a position to afford another 3 sets of tires. Aside from the money factor being a big issue; we started to develop braking issues at the last event and we were now fighting our braking bias being way off. We were hesitant knowing that Willow Springs is a very fast track and brakes would play a crucial role. With the car on the back burner we focused on our daily operations and wrenching on customers cars.

About 5 days prior to the event I received a phone call from Mike Warfield at GST Motorsports to see if we would be attending this year's event. I mentioned my situation and predicament; his response was "come on mate, this is an all Subaru event and one that you should come show the LIC Motorsports car", I agreed with everything he was saying but addressed my lack of funds for tires and that our car would have to be in the Unlimited Class as opposed to the street class (Normally the LIC Motorsports car runs in a modified class and is setup as such), Mike said he had some take off/throw away Hankook C91's that I could have as they were just taking up space and awaiting disposal. Knowing I would be potentially racing others with the same tires and/or full slicks, I figured it was better than nothing. I also made a call to the good folks at Wheeldude to acquire a few sets of Rota DPT 18x10 wheels as our tires were a bit stretched on the previous setup....continue to rest of report here: LIC Motorsports Subiefest Race Report

Grats!!! Your car was insanely fast, and I loved watching the lines that it was taking T5 thru T8. The back straight made it look like the other cars wers putting...

I also enjoy the fact that you and other high powered cars were rocking Rotas!!!
Naysayers can marinate on that for a minute...:catfight:

Congrats Adam and Noah. Hopefully you guys didn't have to consume more than the normal amount of pepto.

Thumbs up for GST too. Love how competing shops help each other out.
