Few pictures from the ice driving event I attended last saturday! Frozen white on a frozen white track!!

4.6km track…4 sessions…4 laps per session average…72km total on track 😁

Met a few guys I did the winter rally driving school with back in Jan.2020. One of them bought a rally prepped civic which was pretty cool! Most of the other participants drove Subarus of all trims and years!

It’s a permanent facility!! They offer a lot of different events such as but not limited to:
  • Winter lapping events (the long track only happens if the weather is favorable in the spring, announces to their mailing list first and fully booked in minutes…);
  • Winter driving courses;
  • Winter rally course (which I attended in Jan. 2020…very fun and instructive);
  • Summer rally couse (also attended, used their Subaru fleet though for this one);
  • Tons of different summer packages/courses;
  • Summer lapping events;
  • Etc.

They have a paved short track for summer events, rally roads for rally practice/testing, motocross tracks, 4x4 trails, etc. They also work with cars OEM and tire manufacturers in the winter, they rent their track a lot for testing and private events (Porsche experience for instance, Audi events too…).

Here’s their website if you’re interested in knowing more about them:

This is almost certainly just confirmation bias, but I believe the Frozen White RS's seem to have the most fun of all the colors :geek: There are more posts in the in the FW "Official" thread than even the Nitrous Blue "Official" thread and that color had twice as many units produced.

I was looking at RS production numbers and it's hard to believe there were only ~2,191 FW for North America in total.

With the counts from the Crashed RS thread I wonder if there are now less than 2,000 FW left in North America? That's not a very big number...

Drove my parents to they airport today…they left their R for the week!

I must admit I enjoyed the R drive to and from the airport, definitely a great daily driver! Likely I’ll buy it from my mom (it’s hers) when she get tired of driving a manual in a few years.

Love how it looks in our driveway next to the RS and our Transit camper van which is patiently awaiting its next trip out of town 😁
