  1. Prodrive Subaru WRX STi TT

    With such high speeds aerodynamics is critical and with more regulations, Prodrive was able to develop a Formula style DRS (Drag Reduction System) for the rear wing. On the longer high-speed sections, the driver is able to manually activate the system to 'flatten' the rear wing reducing drag and increasing the top speed. On 6th June 2016, local Manx rally driver, Mark Higgins, lapped the 37.73-mile course in 17min 35.139 sec, equating to an average speed of 128.73 mph. The Subaru WRX TT Attack car was developed specially to tackle the Isle of Man TT circuit in 2016 and to set a new lap record for a car. The base of the car was the Subaru WRX, using the same chassis. The engine block and heads were also based on the original two-litre unit found in the road car but with new internals. The transmission was the same six-speed semi-automatic transmission as used in the 2008 Subaru Impreza World Rally Car (WRC), but fitted with longer fourth, fifth and sixth gear ratios to allow the car to reach speeds of over 170 mph.

    Worth asking them to see if they can recover the car on a trailer and bill you a bit extra for it
  3. Subaru and the Welsh Rugby Union have signed a shirt partnership which means Wales will wear Subaru logos on their away jersey for the next two years. The Welsh Rugby Union recently announced a four-year partnership which will see ‘pick-up professionals’ Isuzu feature on the red home jersey until 2021 but a deal has now been agreed to switch to Subaru for the away kit. The Subaru branding will be worn by Wales senior men’s and women’s teams and will make its debut appearance against Georgia at the Principality Stadium this Saturday. “We took a new and innovative approach to our latest shirt sponsorship negotiations and looked at ways to maximise value for our partners and increase exposure for our teams on a global scale,” said WRU chief executive Martyn Phillips. “Switching between Isuzu and Subaru for our home and change kit is an exciting twist on the traditional way of doing things and we expect both jerseys to be extremely popular with supporters around the world”. “To associate with two hugely significant Japanese brands in this way as we build towards the Rugby World Cup in 2019 in Japan is a major coup for Welsh rugby and will pay dividends as it further improves the global appeal of our national game”. Paul Tunnicliffe, Managing Director of Isuzu and Subaru in the UK said: “Through our Isuzu brand we have an excellent relationship with the WRU. The pick-up brand will always be the lead focus for this project, but when the WRU came to us with a proposal that allowed us to include Subaru, we immediately agreed”. “Subaru has a strong customer base in Wales, where its no-nonsense fitness for purpose and exceptional off-road capabilities really chime with the rural communities, and we look forward to seeing our customers at Principality Stadium”.

  5. Halfords Discount Card

    I don't think Halfords can do much for the poor maths unfortunately, lol Still being resolved at the moment but glad you got a result when you visited there.
  6. Halfords Discount Card

    If you request that they use the Executive Discount Code on their printout sheet at the till then the discount can still be used. Will get back with more information once Halfords have sorted this glitch.
  7. Halfords Discount Card

    Hi all, Have looked into this situation earlier and it seems like Halfords have changed their barcodes. As far as we can tell, the card is still valid and there is now another code that they have to scan from their sheet but otherwise it should all work as before. Will get back to you all with more information later Cheers Trevor (Admin)
