Contingency to to Continue with Rally America

Golden Valley, MN (January 20, 2011) — RallyCar, the sanctioning body for the 2011 Rally America National Championship is proud to announce Subaru of America, Inc.’s continuing contingency award support program for the upcoming season. The Subaru Rally Support Program, which was created in 2005, continues to be the most lucrative contingency program in North American rallying, with over $20,000 available per event for eligible Subaru drivers to earn.

The program will again focus support on the popular Super Production class (SP) within the Rally America National Championship where the top finishing eligible Subaru SP driver can earn $7,000 at each round.

The Super Production class was created in 2009 by RallyCar to offer a compromise between the top-tier Open class and the more restrictive Production GT class, giving teams options for key modification allowances in an effort to make competition more affordable and competitive. This includes but is not limited to: allowing vehicles to be updated or backdated within a body style of the model, fitting of hydraulic handbrakes, and granting broader brake system modifications. The SP class also allows for 34mm turbo inlet restrictor giving SP cars potentially more power.

“Plan A” payout is for current body style while “Plan B” applied to older Subarus.

The SP class has been hotly contested the last two years and has successfully placed SP finishers in the overall top three. Heading into the new season, Subaru hopes to attract even more new entrants to the sport and the SP class. Additional prize payouts will be awarded to the top ten finishing Subaru SP class registrants.

In addition to this continued support to SP class participants at Rally America National Championship events, Subaru of America Inc., will also offer a $200 ‘start fund’ to any class of Subaru entered in a Rally America Regional rally that runs concurrent to a national event weekend.

“I am very pleased that Subaru of America is, once again, supporting the SP class,” said J.B. Niday, RallyCar Managing Director, “SP allows some very talented drivers to compete within a modest budget.”

Added James Han, motorsports marketing manager for Subaru of America, Inc., “The sheer number and variety of eligible entries registrered for our Subaru Rally Support Program year-after-year bear out the success of this contingency program. Subaru remains committed in supporting our privateers and growing the count of Subaru entries within the Rally America National Championship and further strengthening our position as the preferred AWD brand in rally racing.”
