Over the past couple years, I've had a good time working with the Nameless Performance team and Steven Redd in his rally adventures. When one of the service crew, Matt Turner, built a car and started his own adventure as the Dirty Paws Rally Team, I gladly signed on to be part of the team. Riding with a new driver at a new rally was a fun challenge I was looking forward to as well. Even though it was in a Subaru...
Working with Matt was fun and I think I was able to help him keep on the road and finish well in a tough rally. He drove a tidy race and kept increasing in speed as the event went on. The new roads were very similar to Olympus roads so we could figure out when to push and when to drive conservatively pretty easily. He definitely learned a little about driving near the edge and recovering from unexpected events and we ended up finishing well both days, bringing home a little hardware and some champagne on our driving suits.
Overall, it was another fun experience with the Nameless team and I hope to work with those folks again in the future!
