G’Day…I’m Steve from Perth Western Australia (yes it’s a place far, far away!!) I put down a deposit for a NB Mk3 with forged wheel package back in March 2015, but due to me registering with a smaller dealer, my car won’t be in Australia until later this month…it’s reportedly on a ship in South Africa as we speak.
As far as my car history goes it’s many and varied from early Holdens, Torana GTR XU-1, Renaults, Lancias and then from 1994 until 2012 it has been exclusively Subaru WRX’s and STI’s (one of which I still have). In 2012 after buying a fully caged Version 5 STI Type RA tarmac rally car, I sold my 2006 STI road car and bought a very low mileage Frozen White Mk2 Focus RS ….and what a fantastic car….I instantly fell in love with it and so started my RS journey. I recently sold the Mk2 (sad day) since I can’t justify owning 4 cars!
My current cars (excluding the soon-to-arrive Mk3) are a 2013 Nissan Pathfinder (surfing, windsurfing and race car tow vehicle) and a genuine 2006 Subaru STI Spec C tarmac rally car with all the goodies.
I work as a medical scientist in a large Perth hospital and also do some part time performance driving instruction at a local track. When I’m not doing motorsport I get into surfing (on hold at the moment due to 2 recent shark attack fatalities locally) and speed (GPS) windsurfing.
