What do you say when your co-workers buy a $2,500 Subaru specifically for ice racing and ask you to come along? Well in my case; I said let me grab my camera.
Over the last few years I've taken a lot of inspiration watching the /DRIVE guys create some of the most interesting and well told automotive stories produced to date. Thus, I couldn't pass up the opportunity to share Adam, Ethan, Aaron, and my story; attempting to campaign a Craigslist-find Subie in the two-month-long A.M.E.C. Ice Racing Championship.
For the past month we've been prepping/working on the car when time allows during the week (our bosses at CCC have been nice enough to let us work on the car after-hours) before packing up and heading north on Saturday night for Sunday race day.
Episode 1 picks up just after the teams' first ice race weekend (where Adam secured an overall second place finish, his first time out on the ice), which I was unable to attend because I was in Florida drooling over classic Ferraris. Check out the first two episodes, give us feedback, tell us how stupid we look (we know), and look out for Episode 3 next week.
