The DMACK-supported Subaru Rally Team USA got its Rally America National Championship off to a perfect start with a dominant opening victory on the Sno*Drift Rally last weekend. Defending Rally America champion David Higgins blitzed the opposition, taking overall victory by over nine minutes after winning all 17 competitive stages and giving the all-new 2015 Subaru WRX STI a dream debut victory.
DMACK became official tyre supplier to the squad in July 2014 and since then both team drivers, Higgins and Travis Pastrana, have dominated the Rally America standings.
DMACK’s DMG+2 gravel tyres, as used by crews in the FIA World Rally Championship, have proved to be the perfect choice for the official Subaru drivers in the States. They’ve easily got to grips with the soft forest tracks which many of the rounds use and allowed Higgins to take a number of overall victories and seal his fourth Rally America title.
Last weekend’s Sno*Drift Rally, round one of the 2015 championship, saw crews race across 120 miles of snow and ice-covered roads in northern Michigan. Subaru Rally Team USA now heads to the high-speed gravel roads of The Rally in the 100 Acre Wood, held near Salem, Missouri on 27-28 February.
Dick Cormack, DMACK managing director, said: “Our partnership with Subaru Rally Team USA brought a number of overall victories last year and it’s fantastic to see the winning streak continue with the first outing of the new car. The partnership is the perfect platform for DMACK to showcase its motorsport tyres and promote the range of road and all terrain tyres for the public.”
David Higgins said: “The Sno*Drift Rally is always such a challenge to even finish and stay on the road. It’s one of those events that the biggest challenge is not the other drivers but the stages themselves. The conditions are always changing and the grip levels are always different from one corner to the next. It’s really impressive to run a full race with a brand new car and not have any problems or setup changes whatsoever.”
