Subaru vs Evo Hertfordshire

Subaru vs Evo Hertfordshire

We think things could get very competitive on this Subaru vs Evo experience when you line up an Impreza WRX STi and a Mitsubishi Evolution side by side trackside to see which of these racing beasts is best.

We absolutely love this head to head style experience format. Both cars have seen considerable rally and racing success both are held in high esteem by motoring fans and both have sold bucket loads during their many years of production but which of these two Japanese stalwarts will you prefer?

If we did a survey we reckon the results would be pretty much 50/50. Fans of Subaru and Mitsubishi are notoriously loyal and would never cross the divide from one marque to the other. However this experience lets you test both the Subaru and the Evo to the limits of their rev counters and you’ll probably end up loving them both.

So the stars of the show are the Subaru and the Evo. One thing’s for sure this ‘versus’ experience takes place on a level playing field. The track here in the heart of Hertfordshire has been designed to offer big fun on big corners so you can sweep through at a serious rate of knots in both vehicles.

After a bit of track day theory and safety briefing it’s straight into the programme of Subaru vs Evo with you driving five laps in each car so you will be discovering the vehicle and the track at the same time for an extra dimension to the speed-based thrills.

Of course we wouldn’t just let you loose driving solo around the track in these deliciously playful cars. As you jump in the driving seat of each one you’ll notice an instructor in the passenger seat (or should that be co-pilot?) ready for take off. They are a friendly lot and as well as having the delight of being ferried by your good self for a couple of laps in the Subaru and the Evo they will also be on hand calling braking points reminding you about changing gear and generally helping you get it tight and right on the circuit.

So there you have it our epic meeting of motoring minds – the Subaru vs Evo experience. All that remains is for you to decide which of these two much-loved cars you’d most like to take home and park in your own garage.

This combo experience gives you six laps around the circuit in the supercar you choose and of course another six in the Subaru.

Ah yes the Subaru WRX STi. This car doesn’t need our words to describe it if you know your rally cars you’ll know this is one of the best ever built. And yes you’ll be driving one of the latest versions. Combine this great high performance car with some really classy supercars and we think you have the superlative driving duo on your hands!

It’s worth mentioning at this point that it’s a fully spec’d up version of the Subaru you’ll be climbing into but what we love most is that it’s actually still a five door car and inside it’s pretty much like the normal road-going version inside but as soon as you’ve got the seatbelt on and the handbrake off you’ll realise just what a powerful fun car the finely tuned WRX STi is.

Your Subaru and Supercar Combo takes place at a former airfield at Seighford in Staffordshire that has been transformed by the team into a well-equipped circuit that boasts a very agreeable smooth tarmac. With a design that gives enough straight sections to feel the acceleration and corners to get you putting on that full steering lock as fast as you can this is a winning combination for all Subaru and supercar fans.

This 1 mile track is a dream to drive on as it’s been purpose-designed with fast straights as well as challenging corners.

What always amazes us about the Scooby as opposed to other super cars is that it is so easy to drive and with a dashboard just like you’re average car…except it’s so not your family runabout. This car accelerates like there’s no tomorrow and sticks to the corners like glue. Go hard on the brakes into the turn feed the steering wheel through and progressive on the power as you leave the corner.

That’s because the Subaru Impreza WRX Sti (that’s Subaru Tecnica International Scooby fans!) is quite simply awesome.

This Subaru  not only looks the business with huge whale tail  aggressive air intake on the bonnet and those huge alloys but it is also the business under the bonnet. This Subaru simply oozes torque with its turbocharged boxer engine kicking out 300bhp making it a bit of demon on the track any day of the week.

And if you needed any more convincing about these Subaru track days let’s just say that as soon as you get comfortable with the racing line you’ll find (much like Colin McCrae Richard Burns and Petter Solberg all did when they won the WRC in their Scoobies) that the Subaru has the rather lovely habit of sticking to the road like glue no matter how tightly you enter the hairpins and s-bends. Oh and the Subaru drives around the track as fast as something off a shovel that we’re not allowed to say. True driving heaven.
