Tested: 2015 Subaru WRX STI

A Wolf in Wolf Clothing My chance to drive the 2015 WRX STI finally came during a Subaru Canada club event at Canadian Tire Motorsport Park earlier this year.

Tested: 2013 Subaru WRX STI

STImprezive! I’ve had an insatiable urge to get completely sideways while driving a Subaru STI since watching Ken Block’s Gymkhana Practice video on YouTube.
