SRRT's attack on the full 10-race KONI Challenge Series season put the #111 Legacy 2.5GT spec.B in the thick of the championship hunt into the final race. Demonstrating the tight racing within the series, a crippling fender tap with a little more than an hour to go dropped the team to 5th for the year in the ST Class.
Both the #111 and #141 Legacy 2.5GT spec.Bs showed competitive form throughout the season. The #111 car was driven by Chuck Hemmingson, Kristian Skavnes, and Andrew Aquilante at the various events – at least two drivers per race. The #141 car had Dave Rosenblum, Andrew Aquilante, and Don Knowles as drivers.
By the end of the season, the two cars were driven to nine top-10 finishes, with the #111 car finishing on the podium three times. A 1st-place effort at Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course was among them.
In the past, Crawford Performance time attack cars have established reputations for competitiveness. The orange 2008 WRX STI proved Crawford's mettle again in 2008. A goal of SOA's partnership with Crawford Performance was to develop a formidable car in time attack based on the new STI.
Fast enough for podium finishes in a number of time attack events, the orange STI was guest-driven by the legendary Japanese driver Eiji "Tarzan" Yamada (top) and by rally/race/stunt driver Tanner Foust (bottom).
