SRTUSA DRIVERS’ QUOTES

PATRIK SANDELL
#18 SUBARU WRX STI

“I’m really excited to come back to Austin. We have improved the car a lot since we were here racing. We should be able to fight for the top spot this weekend. This is the final race of the year and I’m sitting P3 in the championship. I’ll do my best to secure my position!”

 


CHRIS ATKINSON

“Looking forward to getting back to COTA. The team has taken another big step with the car and we showed it at Nitro Rallycross how quick the STI RX car can be. We’ll give our best shot at the final round of ARX.”

“I am really thankful that Subaru gave me this chance to drive in Austin. The car felt good in the test and I am ready to fight with other ARX drivers. My target is to be on podium on Sunday for Subaru. I’ll do everything to make it happen!”
