DirtFish Rally by Sibsy DirtFish Rally by Sibsy
Last weekend I visited DirtFish Rally School in Washington. I took a half day course to learn the basics of rally driving and it was everything I dreamed of and more. I'd been wanting to do this since I was 15, and it was definitely worth the wait.

Here's a pic of me and my instructor ripping it around a corner...just thought I'd share a little of the OTHER things I enjoy.

What a blast :)

Ken Block would be jealous :D

It's a shame, I can't try it...except if I go out to a dirt road with my Wartburg, but that's not the same :P

I watched the Top Gear US episode "Off Road Racing". DirtFish was featured on that episode and I saw that very same Subaru Imprezza featured on that episode. I immediately thought of this picture. 

I thought I would share this thought.

Oh. A subaru. A 4wd monster, I wonder what if I sparred you on my century-old rear-wheel Lada Riva, just for the sake of fun. :P

I'm so glad you like cars... I thought I was the only Pony person that liked cars this much... :3
Is your Subaru a standard?

Heh, reminds me of how my grandfather teaches me to drive a car - he lets me drive his VAZ 2106 from one end of еthe village to another and back. Though it's not as epic as driving around a rally course, the village where my grandparents live lacks asphalted roads, so... that's pretty close, I think. :D

Very very cool! Subies are about the best there is, and that looks like a blast!

The only time I've gotten to do anything like that was on a small dry lakebed in SoCal...

Bomb-diggidy. Must have been a hell of a time.

Rally is truly the most pants-shittingest form of motorsport out there.

I'd really love to get into it sometime also. Maybe find a ye olde Galant VR4 for cheap and fix it up into a LOL RALLYCAR. Tons of empty dirt roads around here. Pretty sure nobody would mind me kicking up a small sandstorm. :V

How was DirtFish? Last time I went back east, I visited a rally school in New Hampshire belonging to one of my mom's rally friends (she used to compete in Rally America). I didn't take a course, but I was given a crash course (sans crashing) in how to drive on the loose stuff. However, DirtFish is a lot closer to California than New Hampshire is...if I ever have the ability to, I'd like to actually take a course somewhere.

I've been wanting to go there for the longest time... though the military doesn't pay good enough. What course did you go through? Was it the the full day, 2 day, or 3 day?
