Default Autocross, Nice Picture IS350 PIR Today

My friend took this picture of me racing an autocross today at Portland International Raceway. I was running the stock summer tires. Lots of tire smoke as I accelerated from a turn.

I love the new design of the sti's (cept the tail lights being clear which is an easy fix). How has he had a new sti for 5 months in the US??

The new wrx's did, but I don't think the new sti's were available to purchase here in the states till about 2-3 months ago. I could be wrong about that.

My bad, I was tired when I posted. I think he got it in January, oh and he got one of the first because it was pre-ordered....
