Went on an Endurance Run...and a sad note
So some of the locals set up Endurance Run, a ~150 mile forceful driving
journey through some of the best driving roads in Lancaster County PA and
the surrounding areas. There were approximately 25 cars, some including
mine with passanger(s), and it was overall a great time. Participants
STis including an 08
MSM (my car)
1st gen turbo Probe
2nd gen Probe (i think turbo)
Legacy GT stage 2.5
Stealth TT AWD
Forester XT w/ STi swap and straight cut gears
Here a few other people's pictures of the day.
I'm on the left with the big telephoto in my hand
Unfortunately the day ended on a sad note for one member and our entire community. One of the participants on the run was driving a modified EVO8. Later that night his friend came to his house asking to drive the car. He was given the keys and went for a drive by himself. He didn't judge a corner right, skid, and crashed into a tree. Ejected from the sunroof on impact, car totalled, and he is no longer with us. RIP Nick, and a reminder for everyone to drive safely and within their own limits.
Great day with a sad ending :cry:
Anyway, I snapped a few photos during our many scenic rest stops and lunch
break, so here goes.
1. 2005 Subaru Impreza WRX STi with JDM Genome Exhaust and tune (300awhp and 345awtq)
2. 2008 Subaru Impreza WRX STi

6. 2008 Subaru Impreza WRX STi
Didn't judge a corner right? How fast was he going? :ohcrap:
Love the second post NY'er, very clear...I assume that's down to the camera? :thumbs:
What I read in the news report is that the turn was on a hill and probbably
what happened was he came over too fast, and came down slightly sideways
and thats when he started to slide.
As far as the pix, its partly down to the camera, more to the lens, most to the photographer. I'm what I call a "hobbyist" so my shots are OK, not professional level, but not bad for shooting in less than adequate conditions and locations without time to plan.
A little video filmed by my passanger, doesn't really give a sense of speed but does show the kind of roads we drove and the driving we did during the run. I had fun!
I'm also currently recieving a video. The LGT Stage 2.5 was behind me for a little while and fortunately had an in-car camera mount which managed to get some of my menacing driving. The video is 1.21GB and 18 minutes, nobody will host something that large so I will make a little compilation video and post up when its done.
If he was ejected from the car, he must not have been wearing a seatbelt... Oy....
video as promised
