Subaru STI To Tackle Rally

Subaru Rally Team Canada will be debuting the all new 2015 WRX STI At Rallye Défi, with a model tricked out specifically for rally racing. The car was tweaked by Rocket Rally Racing, to prepare it for the Canadian Rally Championship. The return of Subaru Rally Team Canada (SRTC) will happen at Rallye Défi in the 2014 Canadian Rally Championship (CRC) in Ste-Agathe, QC on September 5-6.

Not only does the team have a new car, but a new driver will be joining them. Martin Rowe is the previous winner of the Production World Rally Championship (PWRC), and he knows the Subaru brand well.

Rocket Rally Racing has invested countless hours, meticulously preparing the car. Under the supervision of Pat Richard, the company has used computer aided design (CAD) systems to virtually test the improvements to the car. Since the research, design and production of each part can be well documented, it will be easy later for the company to reproduce and replicate each part in the future for their own purposes, or for customer's vehicles.

The number one enemy of power is a car's weight. This is why a major weight reduction and distribution program has been established, and several major body parts make use of Kevlar, including the doors. While the Subaru WRX STI was the foundation of this rally car, it's undergone major revisions. Some obvious changes have been made to the suspension, brakes, engine and transmission. With each modification, the first priority and consideration was to ensure that the car retained it's very high level of reliability, durability and quality.

"We are very excited to see how the next generation 2015 Subaru WRX STI performs in one of the most extreme versions of motorsports and against the tough competition in the Canadian Rally Championship," said Shiro Ohta, chairman, president and CEO of Subaru Canada, Inc. "The underlying durability, quality and reliability that we inject into each and every one of our cars is evident as we compete and with the new Subaru Rally Team Canada car, which has been further enhanced by Rocket Rally Racing. I'm confident that the team will have a strong outing."

Along with Martin Rowe in the new car, the team welcomes co-driver Nathalie Richard, a seven-time champion. Good luck to Subaru Canada!
