Petter Sorlberg had his best years in the World Rally Championship with Subaru works team and Subaru is out of the sport from the end of season 2008. That's how quick time passes by.
These days Petter's son Oliver is the new rallying star and Oliver is under the contract with Hyundai. Well, it is unknown if Subaru will join the sport any time soon.
Petter was known also under nick name Mr Hollywood because of his nature and openness to the fans all over the world. And the fans love their heroes. Petter was very big in front of the WRC world.
He won the WRC crown in 2003 and that was the last big success for Subaru in the motorsport. There were some occasional event victories for Solberg but never the championship after that.
What about super special stages?
I already wrote about the super special stages as this stages are very short and on the one place especially designed for fans to see the action very close to them.
This super special was held at the stadium and I remember this edition from 2006 because Eurosport was streaming it live.
In this video you can also see the notes and how they repeat them because it is a circuit stage on the stadium.
I like so much the sound of boxer engine of Subaru Impreza WRC. Enjoy it by yourself watching this video...
