Cool Harewood Hillclimb

Well a few of us from our club humberjapcars went along to the Harewood hillclimb driving school on thursday Some of us plan on compeating this year so going on this course seemed the best thing to do.Well what a fantastic day we had.The things i came away with like the way my scoob handles and its limits which i tested to its fullest(by going off into one gravel trap)
So here are two pics (more to come)and a vid.
Hope you like

They don't teach you any driving skill as such,just the best line to take.And believe me on nearly all the corners the turning point is very late,you just have to bully your car to were you want it to go and have faith that it will pull you through

No DCCD settings for me as its a wrx ra not sti.roof scoop was added by previous owner

I'm gonna give this a go I think, filled out the application form so will hopefully try it later in the year or next year.

The Prodrive day in Warrick I went to was good, the tarmarc rally stage they teach you how to hit the apexes and yeah I know what you mean, your told to take the car right out before cutting into the apex so your brain is going "wtf?!"

Indeed we may!
But, not in the Impreza. It is for sale to part fund a new direction (hillclimbing) for me.
Doing this season in the trusty 911



Good luck with the hillclimbing, you know know how good it is.
You will become adicted quickly!
