Just heard via Facebook that the Japspeed Impreza was stolen today from Santa Pod!
It seems it was just driven away off a trade stand and security didn't stop it?

Just seen this post also. Absolutely shocking. Although it is doubtful they will ever see that car again. Will be broken down for parts.

Apparently was stolen at seen driving away 7:30pm

Balls and bravado, watch guys in supermarkets in hi-viz jackets, the amount of lifters that use them is unbelievable because people do not think you'd make yourself look so obvious....

Allegedly it was seen driving on the M25 not long after it was taken, then about an hour and a bit later in Windsor!

I really don't think they will see it again.

i really cant see how they just drove straight out with this, all you guys know that at a car show, every man and his dog have a camera, and will take photos of absolutely anything, so surely someone will have snapped this driving casually passed them?

It was stolen from PVS and has now been found

Rear lights were in the boot, Part or all of the back bumper in the rear.

Nearside de-stickered.

Dont you think if you had that much money in a car and you took it to public events you might consider fitting a tracker ?

I'm surprised the police didn't intercept it after it was stolen. Its hardly the most difficult vehicle to spot! So the fact that it was driven for quite some time after the theft amazes me. Especially with the number of cameras on the M25.

Yes, rear bumper spoiler and lights gone but otherwise just a bit thrashed... the video of it on the motorway is great :D

BTW re the tracker, don't be silly it's a race car, to start it up they had to pop the bonnest reconnect the fuel lines and the battery, hand prime it and then start it up hardly a lolly pop stick in the ignition job.... thed guys knew what they were doing, knicking a car on slick racing tyres on a wet day.... hmmmm

Update, lights were in the boot and the diffuser on the back seat, unsure on the rest, the nearside had been de-stickered too, guess the hoards of modded car fans out searching put them off actually stripping it properly... :D YAY!

The cheek of some thieving scroates. Honestly; they would steal the eyebrows from your face given half the chance.
