SUBARU MOTORSPORTS USA INSIDER REPORT

LSPR 2019 EDITION
Here we go! Kick off of the final rally of the American Rally Association (ARA) season, Lake Superior Performance Rally, takes place on Friday, October 18th. With LSPR joining the ARA calendar for the first time this year, 2019 will bring Subaru Motorsports USA – and 2016 winners David Higgins and Craig Drew – back to Michigan’s Upper Peninsula after a three-year absence. This event is a photogenic rally known for its autumn foliage and is a favorite of rally fans. The pressure is off for Higgins and Drew, who have already mathematically secured the 2019 ARA Driver’s Championship, and the pair will face off against teammates Oliver Solberg and Aaron Johnston for the event win. Solberg, fresh from his eighteenth birthday and first WRC event at Wales Rally GB, has a chance to earn a spot on the championship podium with a strong performance this weekend.
See you at the finish on Saturday – don’t forget your rain gear!


DAVID HIGGINS — #1
SUBARU WRX STI
“LSPR is one of the classic events in the US. We’ve been away from the event for a few years, but had some success here in the past so we’ll be pushing hard for the win. It’s great to go into an event with no points to worry about and we can just enjoy our last event of the season. The roads are super fast but weather can change in such short notice. I’m looking forward to seeing all our fans out there!”
OLIVER SOLBERG — #70
SUBARU WRX STI
“What an adventure this season has been with Subaru! I can’t believe the year is coming to an end already. Like all of the rallies in America this year, it’s going to be my first time competing out there and I’m not sure what to expect. I know the roads are fast and quite wide in places and I know the weather can be a little bit crazy, but if it’s muddy and raining then I don’t mind – we just came from Rally GB, so we are ready for this sort of thing!”
