It's been almost a year and a half since my last trip to Thunderhill and Rob and I were really looking forward to it. The weather was great, a little on the hot side but really not that bad. I knew Rob was going to be a force to be reckoned with and pretty much after the first session I knew I'd have nothing for him.  All I can hope for is that once he switches from Hoosier to Toyo Proxy RA1's that I may get back a little time from him but that thing down the straights is still a bullet. Here he had over 10mph on me by the end of the front straight. What can I say other than he's building one heckuva STi.
Enjoy the footage!
