My name is Carl Siegler. I've been racing Subaru's for 3 seasons in the Rally America Central Regional Championship. A group of local Subaru enthusiasts make up my team, Ziptie Rally (www.ziptierally.com http://www.facebook.com/ziptie.rally). My codriver is Dave Goodman. My first car was a 2004 STI that was first run as an Open Light car for one season and then converted up to Open class for the following two seasons.
This year at RallyMN I crashed the 2004 hard at 90mph and decided to build a new chassis. A 1996 Impreza coupe was purchased immediately after getting home from the rally. Over the next 5 months the team and I put over 1000 hours into building it from the ground up. We did a lot of work including fully stitch welding the chassis, building a custom wiring harness, powder coating the entire shell and cage, and fabricating a lot of unique parts.
I've only run LSPR so far in this car (DNF'd after the DBW system failed) so not many action shots yet.
