Subaru Out of WRC

Looks like another racing world loss.

I hope this isn't true, but it's coming from several sources.

Crazy. When I first heard about the WRX, it was because of the WRC. One of the reasons I fell in love with the car.

Yep, this info is posted twice....here and in the hangout. Its a shame. But, It doesn't mean that they're giving up. They're just not offically running their own program this year...should be back in a year or two. Mean while, privitized Subies will be out there in WRC. Rally America and stuff like the X-games will still be sponsored I'm sure. It seems that they're really interested in pushing the car in America lately.

Same here. Years earlier I chose a Ceclia GTS because I became aware of it when Toyota was winning with it in WRC. I've been a fan of Jags for many years. But the first one I bought was made in the year that Jaguar won Le Mans after a long awaited comeback.

IMO, racing is a great marketing tool, as long as it's not just about pasting headlight stickers on the front of a car that has nothing to do with the road cars (*cough cough* NASCAR). Porsche and Ferrari are the masters of using racing as a marketing tool. I hope Subie returns soon. And I hope they hire some new designers and stylists (who aren't legally blind) too.
