Driver: Jeremy Norris
Jeremy was born in the North East of England in the early eighties. His father instilled the love of rallying into him at a young age. Spectating at local events, the sounds of burbling engines and the crackle and pop of exhausts would forever be instilled in his memory.
Jeremy's family emigrating to Canada in the mid ninety's. At the age of 16 he obtained his driver's license and then it was just a matter of time before he would be rallying through the forests of Ontario.
As a teenager Jeremy could often be found tinkering under his Honda CRX to try and make it go faster. Working as a mechanics assistant during the summer days and holding the accolade of fastest pizza delivery driver during the night.
Once in a financial position to pursue his dream, he did just that. Purchasing "Blu", a 2000 Subaru Impreza.
Jeremy was the winner of the 2013 Canadian Production 4WD Championship. In the same year he also received recognition as the Canadian Novice Driver of the year award. After taking 2014 off to rebuild and upgrade the rally car the team has accelerated forward, winning the 2015 Ontario Performance Rally Championship and is now at a pace which can compete with some of the fastest teams in Canada.
Jeremy is also a keen aviator, flying several forms of aircraft from single engined Cessna's to high flying corporate Jet's. More recently he has transitioned towards a career in Project Management to allow time to pursue his love of rallying.
This is a picture of "Blu". He's a large part of the team. Blu began life as a 2000 Subaru Impreza 2.5RS. The car has been completely rebuilt from the ground up, with the removal of every single nut and bolt. An FIA approved safety roll cage has been welded in and racing seats and harnesses installed.
To propel the car forward a Japanese production STI 2.0 litre turbocharged engine has been fitted which is mated to a 6 speed manual gearbox. In the rear of the car is a plated limited slip differential. To keep the wheels on the ground, you will find a set of Reiger dampers and to finish things off the car is wrapped in a Niko Signs&Grafx custom livery.
