Nice video, and not a bad song either.

considering subaru is not in the wrc anymore what is he suppose to do not rally at all, or move to a different company that is in wrc (ford)

Not gonna lie the focus rs is a bad ass car too... I'd be tempted if they brought it over from Europe, just gotta get over the lack of AWD. Turbocharged straight 5 cylinder? Cool.

I think it's a good call on his part to switch to Ford. He'll make so much more money.

I think its a great idea to switch to Ford, they are the only car manufacturer that didn't take any bail out money, and are actually turning a profit.

I'm sure the "new" S197 Mustang has something to do with it. There are so many of those on the road these days - I can't drive anywhere without seeing at least one. Subarus, on the other hand, are a much rarer breed.

I do see a ton of Subarus on the road too though...i even had an old lady in a new Forester ask what kind of Subaru i had...she said she wanted my wheels..lol. Subaru also turned a nice profit last year.

so stock its not even funny...just kinda sad :(

Nice video...but a couple of errors in posts. He rallied in rally america, he's stepping up to WRC. Which subaru isn't supporting as a manufactor. Unless I'm mistaken, ford is using the AWD turbo Fiesta for WRC. Not a Focus. The Fiesta isn't a car that the common man can buy, which I think is stupid. The ford car that was in the X games.

What? No. It's a Ford Focus RS frame. You can buy them. It's not a fiesta.

There's only two factory WRC cars left:
Citroen C4
Ford Focus
