How A $500 Craigslist Car Beat $400K Rally Racers

I love **** like this!! ****ing win of the month






Professional motorsport is a cold, hard place. If you want to run with the big dogs, you can't just build a car in your mom's garage and show up, right? Wrong. One guy did just that. Here's his amazing story.
This is the multifaceted tale of Bill Caswell, a man who bought a crapcan off Craigslist to run against $400,000-plus rally cars in a World Rally Championship race. It is a tale of a guy who had a welder, a bunch of credit cards, and a lot of free time but no real backing or funds. It is a story of a dude who taught himself how to build an FIA-legal roll cage because he wanted to spend the fabrication fee on race tires instead. It's the story of a gearhead who drove a rustbucket to a third-place finish in an FIA-sanctioned event............

Yeah, read about this from my buddy Halston who is an E30 fanatic. I love stories like this, but that is definitely not something the average-Joe-Driver can do on his own. That takes some serious driver skill to be able to keep up and place like he did. Simply and utterly amazing!
