Subaru pulls out of 2009 World Rally Championship
Subaru benefited greatly from the rally identity and was the reason I could credibly post "Subaru ftw!" so many times. Besides, it needs to be known for more than just being the #1 lesbian car.
And with Audi dropping the ALMS and Honda dropping out of F1 (admittedly not a big loss considering the last 10 years), and with the odd F1 turn towards spec engines, world motorsport is really going downhill.
