|September 14, 2018 — Subaru of America, FlatOut Sweden, and DirtFish Rally School are pleased to announce that Subaru Winter Experience will return to Dollar Lake in Eagle River, Wisconsin this February and March. After a highly successful debut earlier this year, the event returns with more cars, more driving options, and more opportunities to sign up.
“Driving on frozen lakes in Sweden was my first step toward rally and rallycross glory,” said Patrik Sandell. “I’m incredibly grateful to Subaru of America and DirtFish Rally School for helping me to bring this experience to America once again with the second annual Subaru Winter Experience. Snow and ice driving is a great way to push your limits, and with our brand new fleet of BRZs, WRXs, and WRX STIs, we look forward to helping this year’s class of drivers take their skills to the next level.”
This year’s Subaru Winter Experience will expand upon last year’s program with new course offerings. A brand new two-day program, featuring additional driving exercises and even more track time, will join the single-day program first offered last year. In addition, this year’s Subaru Winter Experience will offer special one-on-one driver training options, designed specifically to the skill set and experience of its participants.
“We at Subaru are thrilled to be part of the Subaru Winter Experience again for 2019 after a great debut earlier this year,” said Bill Stokes, Motorsports Manager for Subaru of America. “The experience of driving a Subaru vehicle on ice is unlike any other, and it highlights the advantages of our core technology like Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive and the SUBARU BOXER engine design.”
The Subaru Winter Experience offers its participants the chance to slide the rear-wheel drive BRZ, all-wheel drive WRX, and legendary WRX STI around a custom-designed course on Dollar Lake. All vehicles are equipped with custom studded tires from Sweden to offer drivers ultimate car control. Participants can also look forward to specially prepared meals from Subaru Winter Experience’s Swedish chef Daniel, as well as ride alongs on the ice with the instructors at the end of the event.
